Former Houston general manager Rick Smith, Rams director of college scouting Brady Holmes and Saints vice president/assistant general manager–pro personnel Terry Fontenot are the finalists for the Falcons’ vacant general manager’s position, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.  This according to a person familiar with the situation.

The Falcons, who fired Thomas Dimitroff on Oct. 11, have interviewed five GM candidates.

In addition to Smith, Fontenot and Holmes, the Falcons interviewed director of college scouting Anthony Robinson and Colts director of college scouting Morocco Brown.

The Falcons, per NFL rules, can’t hire Holmes or Fontenot until after each person’s team loses in the playoffs. Fontenot, who interviewed with the Jets last season, also had an interview with the Denver Broncos for their vacant GM position.
