Ever wondered what an NFL GM really does and what kind of background you need to be one? He is in charge of hiring and firing on the football side of the operation: scouting, drafting, signing, trading, cutting, and managing cap space. This includes coaches as well as players. He does NOT deal with the business side of the operation, which is the job of someone who might have a title like President. Trent Baalke is one of the most important yet unknown figures in Bay Area sports, this is a rare profile of him.

Wow, I thought he dealt with the business side, too. 

Fascinating article, stands up to multiple reads.
