Eagles' Ed Marynowitz will meet with media for first time since being promoted

New, comments

Chip Kelly's right hand man is finally set to talk.

According to a press release (Jimmy Kempski was the first to note it), Eagles vice president of player personnel Ed Marynowitz will be available to the media on Thursday.

Why is this significant, you ask? Well, Marynowitz hasn't been made available for questioning since he was promoted to his current position earlier this offseason.

Marynowitz earned his current title following the Eagles power structure change earlier this offseason. Former general manager Howie Roseman was moved out of the player personnel department and "promoted" to the title of executive vice president of football operations. Chip Kelly was given full control over the player personnel department.

Along with having control, Kelly hired Marynowitz to be his right-hand-man in overseeing the department. Marynowitz has spent time with Kelly traveling across the country to various pro days. Marynowitz is the closest thing the Eagles have to a "real" GM outside of Kelly himself.

In the past, the Eagles would hold a pre-draft media availability with Roseman. Now it's Marynowitz who will take over that role just one week before the 2015 NFL Draft.

It'll be interesting to see what Marynowitz has to say. I'm guessing the Eagles won't be broadcasting the session on the team's website, but various media reporters will be tweeting and writing about it.

Speaking of, I might be there myself. Are there any questions you want asked?
