There’s an increasing belief that the Eagles haven’t hired a defensive coordinator because they’re waiting for Packers safeties coach Darren Perry.
The Eagles may not be the only ones waiting.
Jerry McDonald of InsideBayArea.com recently reported that the Raiders may be interested in — and thus waiting for — Perry, too.
And we may as well throw the Cardinals into the mix, too. Coach Ken Whisenhunt reportedly wants to interview members of the Packers’ and Steelers’ staffs to fill the defensive coordinator position in Arizona, via the Philadelphia Daily News.
One major issue remains the willingness of the Packers to let Perry leave, if he’s under contract beyond the current season. With Perry saying he’s ready to be a coordinator and with teams apparently lining up for his services, the Packers either have already made it known that he’ll be free to leave, or a problem is looming that could made the whole team photo Twitter thing look as meaningless as, well, the whole team photo Twitter thing.
