Add another name to the list of G.M. candidates in Buffalo.

The Bills announced today that they have interviewed Eagles Director of College Scouting Trey Brown for the vacancy.

Buffalo’s G.M. job became vacant six days ago, when the Bills fired Doug Whaley following the draft. There had been talk for months that Whaley and new head coach Sean McDermott weren’t seeing eye-to-eye, and questions will remain about who has final say over personnel decisions after the new G.M. is hired.

Brown was a cornerback who signed as an undrafted free agent with the Bears in 2008 but didn’t make the regular-season roster. He spent three years working as a scout for the Patriots before joining the Eagles’ staff in 2013.

  1. Who better to beat the Patriots, than someone who was taught by Bill Belichick in the Patriots system? He’s probably a few years away, but my sources tell me he’s a star in the League and will be a GM in less than 2 years.

  2. Trey F Brown? A guy that’s been a director of college scouting for a whole year is a candidate for GM? Yeah, that sounds legit.

  3. If they are seriously considering this Director of College Scouting for the GM job, then McDermott is really building and running the team. That’s OK if he’s good at it.

  4. The Bills have painted themselves into a corner once again and will now hire anybody who will take the job.

    Dysfunction junction.

  5. This is what all the Bills fans get for ripping on everyone else’s team. This is karma and you deserve every bit of it. I wont mention which lippy Bills fans by handle. You know who you are.

    Maybe he could have taught Bill how to use the tablets that he so famously gave up on.

    Satisfy the Rooney Rule… ✓
    ______________

    Does a minority candidate EVER get interviewed anymore without some mouth breather coming out and saying it’s only for the Rooney rule?

    Seriously, if it’s a young white guy he’s an up and comer, a future hot candidate. But if they’re black it’s because of the Rooney rule. People like you, who say black candidates are only considered because of the Rooney rule are exactly why the rule exists, because people like you could never consider a minority to be potentially qualified for a leadership position.

    Now hit me with the thumbs down.

  8. Recipe for disaster Rookie HC with no experience interviewing guys with very little experience…Rooney rule pushes the unqualified inexperienced to the front of the line…

    Trey is inexperienced, THAT is why it is check in the box for the Rooney rule. PERIOD.

    ______________________________

    Or maybe he has developed a solid reputation early on and the team is aware if that reputation and trying to identify an relative unknown commodity that could turn into a great long term solution for the position.

  10. It may be fulfilling the Rooney Rule but Trey is also getting interview practice for when he is seriously ready for the job.

  11. This would be a great hire! It’s nice to finally see NFL owners thinking outside the box. This guy sounds like the Theo Epstein of football. He’s from the Patriots tree. Sounds like the Bills are finally doing something smart.
