Report: Eagles Dismiss VP of Player Personnel Licht

It appears that the Eagles are going to have a new VP of Player Personnel, as the Philadelphia Daily News is reporting that Jason Licht has been dismissed from that position.  The report says that the team has no comment on the matter, and that the announcement about Licht being gone has yet to be made public.

He’s been with the club since 2003, when he came over from the Patriots.  The 38-year-old worked closely with GM Tom Heckert.  The story says that Licht had a “falling-out” with vice president of football administration Howie Roseman.  The two were at one point close friends states the story.

Who will get the position is unknown, two names that are mentioned as possible replacements include Roseman, and Director of College Scouting Ryan Grigson, who is thought of highly in the organization.
