The Eagles recently lost director of player personnel Ryan Grigson to the Colts.  They’ve now added a pair of persons to the personnel department.  (Actually, one of them was already there.)

The Philadelphia Eagles today announced that Anthony Patch has been hired to be the director of college scouting, and that Rick Mueller has joined the club as a player personnel executive.

“We are very pleased to promote Anthony and add Rick to our scouting staff,” said Eagles G.M. Howie Roseman.  “Anthony has been one of our top talent evaluators during his tenure as a college scout, has great relationships throughout football and is an extremely hard worker.  Rick brings a wealth of NFL experience while giving us a new and fresh set of eyes to evaluate incoming talent.  They will both play a role in helping us prepare for this offseason of free agency and the draft.”

Patch previously worked on the team’s scouting staff.  Mueller rejoins the NFL after spending time with the UFL.

    I guess that’s better than hiring another attorney or accountant to be a football person… i guess

    This is half good to me. Rick Mueller has a proven track record – good hire.

    Anthony Patch and anyone else in the Eagles’ previous scouting department should have been let go. The Eagles’ last 3 drafts have been disastrous – and I’m an Eagles fan. No one from the scouting department that decided to take Brandon Graham over Jason Pierre Paul deserves to be promoted

    Howie forgot to mention how we have no chance winning a championship while the current coaching staff is intact. Strange to leave that out.

    Eagles are horrible with the draft, they should blow the entire department up. They drafted a 30 year old fireman who is average at best

    Who cares? Andy Reid is the real head of all these departments anyway, and even more-so these particular two departments. Where’s the word on D-coordinator and Djax?

    I hope these 2 new guys will go for the best player and not the shortest player.I also hope they know good linebacker talent when they see it.

    I’m shocked that Juan Castillo didn’t get the promotion.

    Nothing will change till Reid is gone. I don’t care who they bring in to patch things up.
