Jim Thomas, beat writer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch tweeted out tonight that Steelers Chief Contract Negotiator and Salary Cap extraordinaire, Omar Khan, will interview for a job with the Rams on Thursday.
Jim Thomas – jthom1 - Just when you thought Rams were done with their general manager interviews: Pittsburgh’s Omar Khan expected to interview w/Rams Thursday.
Khan has been with the Steelers since 2000,the successor to Dan Ferens. He has been a stable force in the Steelers front office and has been instrumental in virtually every player contract the team has worked on during that time. His ability to manipulate the cap and find ways to free up money is well respected around the league and the sports world in general. Losing Khan would be a blow to the Steelers especially now while they work to free themselves of the approx. $25 million overage for the 2012 season.
Thanks also to the Pittsburgh Trib beat writers for tweeting this out.
