Eagles announce hiring of Tom Gamble from 49ers as VP of personnel. Big move to boost their talent evaluation.

Matt Maiocco ‏@MaioccoCSN
The 49ers granted the Eagles permission a year ago to interview Tom Gamble. The deal finally happened.

Gamble's father Harry was team president of the Eagles back in the day.
SOB. That is big!
Isn't that the same position he had here?

"@AdamSchefter: Eagles name Tom Gamble Vice President of Player Personnel."> very well-respected... Surprised SF let him out before FA/Draft
He was director of player personnel here...seems pretty lateral, he must have wanted to move back to the east coast.

It's very rare to see a team allow one of their personnel execs to leave during this time of yr. They possess a ton of valuable info

Wtf...Didn't he hold the same title here? Must be an east coast guy, or they gave him a pay raise to make a lateral move like that. I didn't think he was going to leave after all the GM spots filled up.
I don't think it's as big a deal as people think. They gave him permission to talk with them a long time ago so they couldn't be that worried about him leaving. The reason is that they are reported to have a very good scouting organization and the thinking is that someone from that group will be promoted from within.
a minor hit to our F.O ....I'd be s**ttng bricks if we lost Baalke though, our most brilliant mind in the front office since Carmen Policy
