Former Bears director of college scouting Greg Gabriel is back in the game, after a fairly extended absence.

Gabriel, pushed out by former Bears G.M. Jerry Angelo in 2010 once former Angelo colleague Tim Ruskell had been pushed out as G.M. of the Seahawks, has joined the Eagles as a senior college scout, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.  Gabriel will be working primarily in the Midwest.

Gabriel also has worked for the Giants and the Bills.  On his watch as Chicago’s director of college scouting, the Bears drafted players like running back Matt Forte, receiver Devin Hester, linebacker Lance Briggs, and defensive tackle Tommie Harris.
