The Eagles hired Tom Gamble as the team’s vice president of player personnel on Wednesday. Gamble will report directly to GM Howie Roseman and work in the college and pro personnel departments.
Gamble heads to Philadelphia after spending the past eight seasons with the 49ers. From 2011-12, Gamble was the 49ers’ director of player personnel.
“Since Ryan Grigson left to become the General Manager of the Colts, we’ve been looking for the right person to fill his spot and we are excited about what Tom can bring to the team,” Roseman said in the team’s release. “He’s not only a talented evaluator, but also a good man and the type of person you want as a part of your team. Tom and I have had a great relationship over the years and I know he’s excited to come home.
“He had a great run in San Francisco and they have been very successful over the last few years. He will jump right in with our group and get working on free agency and the draft.”
Gamble has 25 years of NFL experience, originally entering the NFL with the Eagles as an assistant in the personnel department in 1988, where he worked until 1994. Gamble’s father, Harry, was the Eagles’ president from 1986-95.
