The Eagles are reportedly losing director of pro scouting Dwayne Joseph to Mike Mayock and the Raiders.
After 4 yrs w/the team, #Eagles Director of Pro Scouting Dwayne Joseph is headed to the #Raiders. There, he's expected to fill the role of pro director, which has been vacant since January. Joseph has also worked w/the #Bears & #Dolphins. #NFLScouts— Neil Stratton (@InsideTheLeague) May 6, 2019
Joseph had been with the Eagles since the 2015 as their director of pro scouting. He came to the Eagles from Chicago, where he last served as the associate director of pro personnel.
While Joseph isn’t a very well-known name, this isn’t an insignificant loss. Joseph and his team have been active in recent seasons, finding role players from the rosters and practice squads of other teams. Just last season, they added Golden Tate, Treyvon Hester, Deiondre’ Hall, B.J. Bello and more.
An obvious internal replacement candidate for Joseph would be Brandon Brown, who has been the assistant director of pro scouting. The Eagles hired Brown in 2017 after he spent a couple seasons with the Colts.
The Eagles have been one of the top and most stable franchises in the league over the last few seasons, so Joseph will not be the last front office member or coach to be poached. In fact, there were rumors about Joe Douglas’ future that surfaced just before the draft. Douglas, the team’s vice president of player personnel, will likely be a GM one day.
The Eagles also hired Andrew Berry from the Browns this offseason as their vice president of football operations, not to be confused with Howie Roseman’s title of executive vice president of football operations. They created a spot for the up-and-coming Berry. The Eagles have no problem stockpiling front office talent and losing Joseph is a good example why.
