Eagles undergo massive front office overhaul following 2022 NFL Draft
The Philadelphia Eagles are shaking up their front office big time following the conclusion of the 2022 NFL Draft.
Eagles’ Vice President of Football Operations Catherine Raiche is likely joining the Cleveland Browns in an Assistant General Manager-type role, per Toni Grossi of ESPN Cleveland.
It was expected that Raiche’s tenure in Philadelphia would be ending soon, as she has quickly climbed the ladder over the last few years. Back in January, the Minnesota Vikings requested to interview her for their general manager position, but she, unfortunately, didn’t land the job.
The Eagles let go of their Director of Scouting Operations and brother of their VP of Player Personnel Casey Weidl earlier this week. Scouts are often let go following the draft for cost-saving maneuvers. Andy is a front runner for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ GM opening, so this could be the Eagles moving on from both brothers if that’s the case.
Before the draft, Philly lost Ian Cunningham who left to become the Chicago Bears Assistant GM, while Brandon Brown departed for the same role with the New York Giants.
With so many faces on their way out, it’s expected the Eagles will be bringing in several new executives in the coming weeks.
According to Albert Breer, Executive Director of the Senior Bowl, Jim Nagy, interviewed with the team earlier this week. Nagy was formerly a scout with the New England Patriots and several other teams for over 18 seasons.
Hunt has been the Steelers’ Pro Scouting Coordinator for over ten seasons and is one of the biggest contenders for a GM job in the near future. The Las Vegas Raiders interviewed him for their vacancy earlier this offseason, and he’s in the running for the Steelers’ GM job alongside Weidl.
It’s unknown what Hunt’s role would be, but Garafolo reported it would be a “high-ranking” job within the front office.
Another candidate for the Steelers’ GM opening, Carthon, is the San Francisco 49ers’ Director of Pro Personnel, previously holding the same role with the Los Angeles Rams. Carthon has yet to interview with the team but is someone they are looking at, according to Garafolo.
Brown was also in the mix for the Steelers’ job, also talking with the Chicago Bears earlier this off-season. Currently, Brown is the Colts’ Director of College Scouting and is in the same position as Carthon with Philadelphia.
