While the Falcons continued their search for a new head coach in Jacksonville on Thursday, New York Giants vice president of player evaluation Chris Mara withdrew from consideration for the Falcons' general manager vacancy.
"I want to thank [owner] Arthur Blank for his interest in me, and we had a very good discussion earlier this week in Atlanta," Mara said in a one-paragraph statement released by the Giants. "However, I am no longer a candidate for the position."
Mara cited no reason for his decision to withdraw. Full Story – Journal-Constitutionhttp://www.ajc.com/sports/content/sports/falcons/stories/2008/01/10/mara_0111.html
