The Texans were reportedly interested in Douglas for their vacancy. They requested an interview with the Eagles executive but Philadelphia blocked it from taking place. The Eagles had the right to block it since their season is still going on. Had the Texans waited until if/when the Eagles are eliminated from the playoffs, they would’ve been able to meet with Douglas.
While there’s still time for things to change, it seems like Douglas is a safe bet to return to Philadelphia in 2018. He hasn’t been connected to any other openings around the league. And most of them have been filled at this point anyway.
Douglas is a valued member of the Eagles’ organization. It’s not always clear what he is/isn’t responsible for when it comes to personnel moves, but we do know he’s the one who sets Philly’s draft board. The Eagles have also acquired a number of players with ties to Douglas since he’s arrived in Philadelphia. Several examples include: Tim Jernigan, Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith, Dannell Ellerbe, and Corey Graham.
Good to know Douglas is likely sticking around.
