Tom Gamble won’t pursue Bucs or Dolphins G.M. jobs

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.

    At least he didn’t need Tony Dungy to help him make this decision.

    Maybe because his dad Harry Gamble is old, not doing so well, and wants to stay close to him

    Stephen Ross is having a terrible time attracting marquee Coaches, QB’s, OC’s, and now GM’s. At some point maybe he should look in the mirror and see the person they don’t think should own a franchise.

    Can’t see why anyone would take the Bucs job since they already hired Lovie, what GM wants to come in and have no say in that job? That can make or break a GM’s tenure.

    Go BIRDS! With Tom’s influence over the 2014 draft, the Eagles could look to contend in the Divisional round of the playoffs.

    PLAYOFFS?!?!?!

    Makes sense, he’ll get a shot at a real GM position sooner or later. No reason for him to move away from his hometown and his aging parents for either of these crappy jobs. Glad to have him around Philadelphia another year.

    Miami is not a bad football team they did beat the Pats, Pitt in late Dec, Cinn, Colts, Chargers and were in almost every game they played lost 4 games buy 3 points with no O Line and were one game away from the playoffs…So to say people are looking for something better is crazy.

    Well every year different teams have personnel issues allowing them to be called unstable. There are few teams like the Patriots and Steelers who never seem to be seeking help acquiring player personnel. So a personnel troubled unstable team is what a good GM with talent acquisition skills should be looking for. The Patriots and Steelers will not need Mr. Gamble.

    In the corporate world a new CEO is hired to help turn a companies bottom line around, be more profitable and allow for the corporation to become more stable……so it goes.

    Gamble very well might become the GM in Philly with Roseman getting kicked upstairs somehow.

    Gamble stayed to be close to his parents.

    I would Like to see Mr. Gamble as GM where he is currently employed.

    I’m glad he’s staying put. The Eagles had the best draft in years with his input. I hope The Eagles keep him around for a while.

    Really hope he stats with the Eagles for the long hail, certainly a valuable guy that will be part of a successful franchise wherever he is.

    While a few are born leaders, most are content being followers. Who needs this dude for gm.

    I would love to have gamble be our GM eventually down the road. He did big things for the niners and they have about 8-9 players who are light years ahead of anyone on the eagles.

    I don’t understand why Dolphins fans are having trouble figuring out why their GM position is not desirable. It’s not about the talent level on the roster, which is fine, at least by the standards of teams unhappy enough to have fired their last GM.

    The problem is that the coach, who is already in place, and a team executive, who also remains in place, teamed up to get the last GM fired. Why would anyone with options want to walk into that situation? Sure Ross says the new GM will have full powers and responsibilities, but why should candidates believe that?
