The Senior Bowl isn't merely an event where NFL media types go to Alabama to watch the prospects for the upcoming NFL Draft. It's also a time where those media members get the chance to speak with various NFL personnel executives and scouts. One of the topics of discussion for Eagles reporters was Philadelphia's GM search. Here are some interesting updates.
Ed Marynowitz doesn't expect to interview for Eagles GM job
Eagles assistant director of player personnel Ed Marynowitz was the first name to emerge in Philadelphia's GM search. A number of people have spoken glowingly (the next Ozzie Newsome) about the 30-year-old executive, but the Eagles might opt for someone with more experience. It appears Marynowitz isn't scheduled to even receive an interview, however.
Ed Marynowitz said he hasn't interviewed for #Eagles "GM" opening. Don't know if he was being modest, but said he didn't expect to get one.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) January 20, 2015
It's my understanding Ed Marynowitz has not interviewed for "GM" job. Doesn't mean he won't eventually. He is here in Mobile w/Eagles.— Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherCSN) January 20, 2015
What's going on with Tom Gamble?
Tom Gamble's name hasn't really been linked to any new jobs ever since being fired by the Eagles on the last day of 2014. Philadelphia's former vice president of player personnel was seen talking with current members of the Eagles staff.
Exiting rental car in Mobile, first person I see is Tom Gamble. Says he’s doing well, has "a couple things" going, no details yet.— Les Bowen (@LesBowen) January 20, 2015
You hear that a lot at the NFL’s unofficial job fair...— Les Bowen (@LesBowen) January 20, 2015
Ran into Tom Gamble at local coffee shop. Didn't wanna talk Eagles. Interesting: Had just wrapped up a long talk with 49ers GM Trent Baalke.— Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherCSN) January 20, 2015
Tom Gamble, like so many out of work NFLers, is at the Senior Bowl. He is sitting with #Eagles scouts like Ed Marynowitz watching practice.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) January 20, 2015
Tom Gamble now leaning on fence, chatting with Chip and Pat Shurmur. So, no bad blood there.— Les Bowen (@LesBowen) January 20, 2015
Were the Eagles going to hire Brian Gaine?
Houston Texans executive Brian Gaine interviewed for the Eagles GM job earlier in the month. The Texans promoted him last week before he could accept the Eagles job, however. It seems like the Eagles may have wanted to hire him.
For what it’a worth, there are people here who think the #Eagles were ready to hire Brian Gaine for personnel job, b4 Texans promoted him.— Les Bowen (@LesBowen) January 20, 2015
Concerns about taking the Eagles GM job
Biggest ?s about Eagles "GM" job, I'm hearing, is a) is Chip gonna go back to college; and b) is Howie still powerful in the organization.— Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherCSN) January 20, 2015
Concerns about taking job and then in 2 years or so it turns out to be not what it was supposed to be.— Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherCSN) January 20, 2015
No update on Sheldon White
Detroit Lions executive Sheldon White has been rumored to be an Eagles GM candidate, but he wouldn't comment on the search.
Sheldon White politely declined to talk to me about his candidacy for Eagles "GM" job. Lions were asked to avoid speaking on other jobs.— Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherCSN) January 20, 2015
