The Philadelphia Eagles are losing at least one member of their front office this offseason.
Assistant director of college scouting Mike Bradway is leaving the Eagles to join the Kansas City Chiefs, according to a report from Geoff Mosher.
Only a matter of time. #Eagles losing assistant director of college scouting Michael Bradway to position w/Kansas City, per two league sources.— Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherNFL) April 29, 2018
Bradway, who’s been with Eagles for seven years, teams back up with w/Chiefs GM Brett Veach, who came up thru Eagles scouting chain.
Bradway won't have to go very far for his new job. He lives in Kansas City. His dad, Terry, once worked in KC's personnel dept. before being hired as Jets GM. https://t.co/VfzczGU15G— Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherNFL) April 29, 2018
Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas recently credited Bradway following Philadelphia’s selection of Dallas Goedert in the 2018 NFL Draft. “Mike Bradway went there [to South Dakota State] in the fall and did a great job for us,” Douglas said during a Friday night press conference.
Former Eagles president Joe Banner also publicly commented on this news by saying Bradway is a “good man who did well for the Eagles and deserves a bigger job.”
Losing Bradway is just another reminder that there’s a price to having success in the NFL. Philadelphia’s Super Bowl win has already inspired other teams to hire away some of their assistant coaches and free agent players. Now that the Eagles are starting to see some hits to their front office as well.
Finding a way to replenish the pipeline is a challenge the Eagles must face.
In truth, it’s a really good problem to have.
