Eagles Lose Mike Bradway to Chiefs
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - The personnel side of the NFL works on a different schedule from the rest of the league and change comes after the draft.
The Eagles have already lost a key member of their scouting department to Brett Veach, Andy Reid, and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Mike Bradway, the assistant director of college scouting under Anthony Patch and Ian Cunningham, is leaving to join the Chiefs.
The news was first reported by Philadelphia-area radio personality and long-time Eagles reporter Geoff Mosher and was then confirmed from the Kansas City side.
Ironically, Bradway, the son of former Jets GM Terry Bradway, was given a bit of a shout out in the draft by Eagles second-round pick Dallas Goedert, who believed the scout was the one on the phone telling the tight end he was on the way to Philadelphia. It was actually Howie Roseman, however.
Mike Bradway already lives in Kansas City, his father spent years in the Chiefs' personnel department and Veach, the new Chiefs' GM, grew up in the NFL scouting circles with Bradway in Philadelphia so the move is a logical one.
Casey Weidl, the Eagles' college scouting coordinator and the younger brother of assistant director of player personnel Andy Weidl, could be in line for a promotion.
