Report: Ray Farmer is the leading candidate for the Dolphins GM job

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald,  Cleveland Browns assistant general manager Ray Farmer is the current leading candidate to get the Dolphins general manager position.

Farmer has emerged as the search began Friday for two reasons:

He truly is a strong candidate with a strong background. Secondly, former Kansas City Chiefs President Carl Peterson has joined the Dolphins search and is Stephen Ross’s chief advisor in the process. Peterson is a 30-year friend and confidant to Stephen Ross. And Peterson loves Farmer.

Morever, Peterson is supremely confident in his ability to identify and hire prospective NFL general managers.
