UPDATED 12/21: Two personnel sources said that Gamble should receive attention from at least three teams for expected GM openings next month.
Eric DeCosta/Baltimore Ravens/Assistant General Manager: The veteran personnel evaluator received his latest promotion in May of this year. DeCosta turned down several interviews with other teams earlier this year because it’s a well-known fact that he’ll eventually take over the entire football operations once (GM and Executive VP) Ozzie Newsome retires.
What makes DeCosta one of the strongest personnel executives is due to his extensive pro and college scouting background, which spans over 16 years. And he has worked alongside of Newsome for many seasons. It also doesn’t hurt that DeCosta has been part of one of the NFL’s most successful scouting departments in regard to the NFL Draft for many years.
So I've seen many on here approve of DeCosta, but rudely disapprove of Clinkscales. Yet, they both seem to have similar resumes and strengths in their background, so why are so many against a possible Clinkscales hire?
