10 realistic General Manager Candidates for Chicago Bears
6 of 10
5. Glenn Cook, Cleveland Browns Vice President of Player Personnel
This is another candidate that the Chicago Bears have already requested to interview. Just like Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, this candidate is connected through the Browns, and Andrew Berry. However, for Cook, it goes deeper than that.
Cook got his start in the NFL as a scout for the Colts. Who was the GM at the time? Of course, Bill Polian. Now, over a decade later Bill Polian gets to interview Cook for a GM seat with the Chicago.
For Polian, there has to be an emotional aspect to the rise of Cook and his potential as a Chicago Bears GM. Berry has kept him close, and they are both Polian guys so you have to think the interest here is real and strong.
