Former Tennessee Titans general manager Floyd Reese will get a second interview for the general manager’s job with the Seattle Seahawks, according to a report from ESPN.com's John Clayton.

A league source told The City Paper that Reese could be the potential frontrunner to land the job and work alongside newly hired head coach Pete Carroll. Reese and Carroll coached together with the Minnesota Vikings in the 1980s.

Reese worked in the Titans organization for more than two decades, first as a linebackers coach and later as an assistant general manager before becoming general manager in 1994.

During his tenure as general manager, which ended with his contract not being extended after the 2006 season, Reese drafted such players as Steve McNair, Eddie George, Jevon Kearse, Albert Haynesworth and Vince Young.
