The Eagles’ search for a personnel executive to work in the front office with vice president of football operations Howie Roseman has taken them across the state.

Steelers president Art Rooney II said on Thursday that the Steelers granted the Eagles permission to interview pro scouting coordinator Brandon Hunt. Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Hunt met with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and Roseman on Wednesday.

Hunt has been with the Steelers since 2010 and spent three years as a scout with the Texans before moving to Pittsburgh.

McLane reports that the Eagles have spoken with former Buccaneers General Manager Mark Dominik, who is expected to stay with ESPN, and that former Browns exec Morocco Brown is on the radar for the personnel opening. It’s not clear what the job title of that eventual hire will be, but the return to prominence of Roseman since the departure of Chip Kelly means it isn’t likely to be one that leaves them in control of the front office.

  1. I like the moves the Birds are making. I think you can’t really judge the defense from last year cause of Kelly’s fast paced offense…..an offense that led the league in shortest time on field and a D that led the league in longest time on field. The only “scheme ” I’d like to see is putting the correct players in the correct position, haha, crap, I mean Curt Coleman is having a career year in Carolina…we had him for 4 years? (I think) and couldn’t use him correctly??? The only thing you read about him was “Hard hitter, but makes mental mistakes, out of position”…I want a run offense that just pounds the ball (everyone according to the press is gearing up to stop the pass anyways) and a D that gets on and off the field fast cause they are shutting them down……..ugh…..#Eaglesare frustrating

  2. Come on Lurie. You have the right guy in your back yard. Mike Mayock is one of the most knowledgeable personnel guys around and he already lives outside of Philly. Join the rest of the world and realize that Howie Roseman in ANY personnel capacity is DESTROYING the Eagles credibility around the NFL and ability to compete.

    If you really care about the team dump Rasputin Roseman and rejoin the ranks of professionally run football teams.
