Falcons hire former Rams G.M. Billy Devaney


The Falcons continue to add former decision-makers to their personnel department.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Falcons have hired former ESPN analyst Billy Devaney as a regional scout.

Devaney’s personnel career topped out as General Manager of the Rams, but he previously worked for the Falcons under team president Rich McKay.

The Falcons also hired former Chiefs G.M. (and former NBCSN analyst) Scott Pioli as an assistant to his old friend Thomas Dimitroff.

That gives them plenty of experience in a personnel department that has become a bit of a breeding ground for young executives, with Dave Caldwell leaving for the Jaguars G.M. job, and Lionel Vital interviewing for those type of jobs.

    As a Rams fan, I wish they would have hired him 4 yrs ago…

    Didn’t he draft Quinn, Long, Laurinitis, Brockers, Saffold? Problem is you have Jeff Fisher now. And he simply isn’t any good either… at drafting or coaching.

    No, his biggest mistake was drafting Sam “Badd for Rams” Bradford after missing most of the season with a serious shoulder injury. He was also a pretty terrible QB too, another Jokelahoma product of a system like Jason White.
