|NFL VP Anderson at the draft.(US Presswire)|
When we mention NFL VP Ray Anderson around these parts, it's typically involving some sort of disciplinary action regarding an illegal fine. But for the second time this season, Anderson's name is popping up in rumors for front-office jobs around the NFL.
This Sunday, Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network reports that while Anderson currently "loves" his gig with the NFL, he's a candidate for any of the potential front-office jobs that open up. The Raiders, Rams and Chargers are notable spots that could experience a front-office shake-up.
Anderson played in the NFL, he was an NFL agent, he's worked with the NFLPA and now he's worked with the league. He's well-connected and obviously has management skills, since he runs football operations for the entire league.
As LaCanfora points out, Anderson could potentially become the first African American team president in NFL history and, as a "historian of the game," that's likely something that would intrigue him.
And there's this: NFL.com (the website of the company that employs Anderson) is rolling with "Teams eyeing Anderson" as the headline. With all due respect to the NFL for doing a great job of separating church and state (as it were), if the NFL tells us that teams are currently eyeing one of their employees, it's a pretty good bet that teams are currently eyeing one of its employees.
