Bills interview Eagles executive for general manager position, report says

New, comments

Changes coming?

The Buffalo Bills are interviewing Philadelphia Eagles director of college scouting Trey Brown for their vacant general manager position, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

Brown, 32, spent 2010-2012 with the New England Patriots before joining the Eagles as a West Coast area scout in 2013. He was promoted to assistant director of college scouting in 2015 before being promoted to his current position in 2016.

You may recognize Brown from the times you’ve seen him on your television. He stars in a recent Microsoft Surface Pro commerical.

The Bills are reshaping their front office this offseason after clearing house following the firing of former GM Doug Whaley. Former Eagles defensive coordinator and current Bills head coach Sean McDermott will have a lot of influence in structuring Buffalo’s new personnel department.

The Eagles are bound to make changes to their front office this month following the completion of the 2017 NFL Draft. There’s already been some leaks of changes to the scouting department and the Eagles will likely officially confirm those moves at some point. Vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas will likely have an influence on Philadelphia’s s new hirings and dismissals.

After interviewing with the Bills, it’s possible Brown will be gone whether the Eagles want him back or not.
