Inside the Birds: More Front Office Movement
Jeremiah Washburn, son of controversial former Eagles defensive line coach Jim Washburn, has been elevated to director of player personnel, one of the highest positions on the scouting staff, despite being with the team for just one season.
Washburn, who has both scouting and coaching in his 17-year NFL background, is second to vice president of player personnel Andy Weidl on the scouting chain, a seismic leap in title given that his highest previous scouting job was an area scout for the Ravens in 2008. Washburn will also help the Jim Schwartz's group as a senior defensive assistant, giving him multiple hats to wear.
Washburn joined the team last year as an advanced projects coordinator. He leapfrogged other Eagles personnel executives, including assistant director of player personnel Ian Cunningham, into his new role.
In the latest Inside the Birds, Eagles Insiders Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher pore through Washburn's promotion and some of the team's other front-office promotions, explaining how those new titles can influence the organization from top to bottom.
Caplan and Mosher also discussed more medical-staff shakeups and answer #AskITB questions about Josh McCown returning, the roles for the new coaches and if certain free agents are good fits for the Eagles.
