The Carolina Panthers will not be fully focused on Sunday’s Wild Card Round action.

According to ESPN senior NFL insider Adam Schefter, they’ll be busy interviewing Ed Dodds for the position of general manager. Dodds, one of Carolina’s 11 known candidates, currently serves as the Indianapolis Colts’ assistant general manager.

The Panthers announced on Monday that they had requested to speak with Chris Ballard’s right-hand man. That official release also included the names of Brandon Brown of New York, Mike Greenberg of Tampa Bay, Brandt Tilis of Kansas City, Alec Halaby of Philadelphia, Khai Harley of New Orleans, Nick Matteo of Baltimore, and Champ Kelly of Las Vegas.

This will be Dodds’ second opportunity to lead Carolina’s front office. His first interview with the Panthers occurred in 2021, when the organization ultimately chose Scott Fitterer.

In addition to Dodds and his aforementioned company, the Panthers have shown interest in their own assistant general manager Dan Morgan, vice president of football administration Samir Suleiman, and Detroit Lions chief operating officer Mike Disner.
