Anderson would be logical fit in S.F.
As the 49ers look to bolster a beleaguered front office, they'd be wise to seriously consider Atlanta exec Ray Anderson.
Niners owner John York seems to concur with Nolan's assessment that the front office is in need of reinforcements, an analysis several outsiders made during the 2005 season, and it appears San Francisco will make at least one pertinent hire sometime this offseason.
The names most often floated this week in the Bay Area for a job whose title likely will be president of football operations: current Seattle vice president Mike Reinfelt; former Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Titans president Jeff Diamond; and Joe Mendes, who is now out of the NFL but once held key front-office posts with the New England Patriots and Washington Redskins, among others.
But here's another name to strongly consider: Atlanta Falcons executive vice president and chief administrative officer Ray Anderson.
