According to a report from Tim Kamakawi of the Mercury News, Eagles Vice President of Player Personnel Tom Gamble might be headed out west following the season. Kamakawi is reporting that Gamble is a "strong general manager option in Oakland."
Eagles need Mark Sanchez to run more
If Philadelphia wants to beat Dallas again, Mark Sanchez needs to pull the ball on read option plays again. He didn't against Seattle, and the offense suffered for his predictability.
He also notes that the Raiders could pair Gamble with current 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. Gamble and Harbaugh spent some time together in San Francisco before the Eagles hired Gamble away in the 2013 offseason.
It is hardly a surprise to see Gamble's name mentioned in front office rumors. The Eagles executive drew attention last offseason by a number of teams with general manager vacancies such as the Miami Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Gamble ended up staying in Philadelphia to be close with his family. Gamble's father, former Eagles president Harry Gamble, then passed away in late January 2014.
ESPN Insider Adam Caplan recently noted that Gamble is the number one candidate for landing a general manager job this offseason. The Eagles face a very real possibility of losing him this offseason.
