ORCHARD PARK- The Buffalo Bills will have a second interview with Carolina Panthers assistant general manager Brandon Beane, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Beane is one of three official candidates for the Bills GM position.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott spent the previous six years with the Panthers as defensive coordinator and worked with Beane, so there's an obvious connection there. Beane was promoted to Panthers assistant GM two years ago.

On Monday, the Bills interviewed Green Bay Packers Director of Player Personnel Brian Gutekunst.

The Bills have also interviewed Houston Texans Director of Player Personnel Brian Gaine and Philadelphia Eagles Director of College Scouting Trey Brown.
