Default Rams interested in Steelers exec as general manager

NOOO!!!!

Quote:
The St. Louis Rams have requested permission to interview Steelers director of administration Omar Khan for their general manager job, sources told the Tribune-Review today.

Khan, the Steelers' salary cap manager and chief negotiator, is considered one of the top young executives in the NFL. A key behind-the-scenes figure with the Steelers, Khan was one of two finalists for the Seattle Seahawks' general manager job two years ago.

Khan, who has been with the Steelers since 2000, also has been linked as a possible general manager to join Bill Cowher if the former Steelers coach comes out of retirement.

Khan, 35, has built a reputation of having superior command of the salary cap, and he did some of his best work in 2011. Despite an abbreviated offseason because of the lockout, Khan signed linebackers LaMarr Woodley and Lawrence Timmons, strong safety Troy Polamalu, cornerback Ike Taylor and offensive tackle Willie Colon to long-term contracts while managing to get the Steelers under the salary cap of 120.375 million.

The Steelers had been close to $15 million over the cap when the lockout ended in late July.

not only did he work majic last season, he set up contracts perfectly, which has allowed him to tap into the "bank of lamaar woodley" to help get under the cap for this season.

all our big named players are signed and we have flexibility to push money into the future. the cap is gonna rise big time when all these new tv contracts kick in and we will be just fine.

i knew omar was young but i didnt realize he was only 35. that means he musta started the position at around 26 or so. pretty impressive.

Leave the Steelers for the Rams, I doubt it. If I were Rooney I would make sure the pay difference wasnt so huge that he leaves.

If by "tapping into the bank of Lamaar Woodley" you mean paying him an $8.2M signing bonus + $700K salary, instead of a $5.5M roster bonus + $2.7M salary, the Steelers can "tap" into mine any time.

Saw this on Mark Kaboly Twitter just a few minutes ago: @MarkKaboly_Trib #Steelers Omar Khan has still not received permission to interview with the Rams. So obviously, he won't be meeting with the Rams today.


Looks like Omar didn't get permission by the Steelers.

I would think he'd just be a figurehead in STL anyhow right. Fisher I imagine like many big name HC's who get a second gig probably has a big FO role. Anyhow, Khan's an impressive guy. He got his current job with the team when he was only 24. Guy is smart and glad to have him.

No! We'll keep him! For vet minimum, of course.
