The Buccaneers are moving on to stage two of their search for a General Manager, but both Florida teams will be moving on without Tom Gamble.
According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, Gamble is content to stay with the Eagles for another year, rather than pursue either of the available G.M. jobs in the Sunshine State.
Tampa Bay has begun the process of second interviews, having talked to Lionel Vital again.
Both teams had requested permission to interview the Eagles’ vice president of player personnel.
But with concerns about the authority or stability involved with the two positions, a well-regarded personnel man such as Gamble might have simply decided to wait for something better to come up.
He also just joined the Eagles a year ago after a stint with the 49ers, and with the team making a quick turnaround this season, another year of success could raise his profile even higher.
