Eagles to lose scouting vice president Catherine Raîche in front office position with Browns – NBC10 Philadelphia

Eagles scouting department takes another blow originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

The Eagles front office suffered another blow on Tuesday with the news that the much-loved vice president of football operations, Catherine Raiche, is joining the Browns front office.

The news was first reported by Cleveland’s Tony Grossi TheLandOnDemand.com.

In Cleveland, Raîche will reunite with executive vice president of football operations and general manager Andrew Berry, whom she worked with in Philadelphia in 2019 before succeeding Berry as vice president of football operations for the Eagles.

Raîche is the third key member of the Eagles scouting department to leave since the end of the season.

The Giants hired Eagles co-director of player personnel Brandon Brown as assistant general manager, and the Bears hired co-director of player personnel Ian Cunningham in the same role.

These losses, shortly after the end of the season, inspired the Eagles to introduce a proposal that barred such hires until after the draft. This was passed at NFL owners’ meetings in March.

Additionally, vice president of player personnel Andy Weidl is a candidate for the Steelers general manager position that opens up as Kevin Colbert retires.

The Eagles also lost vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas in 2019 when the Jets hired him as general manager, then in 2020 the Panthers hired Eagles national scout Patrick Stewart as director of player personnel. .

General manager Howie Roseman, when asked about Weidl’s possible departure on Saturday, said the Eagles have a lot of work to do to rebuild the front office.

“You talk here about some of the things that have happened since the 2019 draft ended – we’ve lost a lot of really good people and we still have a lot of really good people,” he said.

“Because of that, we’re going to have to keep making additions and keep strengthening this group. I think we have a good process for that. I think we are in a situation where we want to continue to develop talent in construction.

“We have good people in the building and just like our football team we are always looking to add good people, and I think you are only as good as your staff. We have very good people and obviously Andy is one of them.

Raîche joined the Eagles in 2019 as Football Operations/Player Personnel Coordinator and was promoted to Vice President of Football Operations following the 2020 season.

She joined the Eagles after spending five years in the CFL with the Montreal Alouettes and Toronto Argonauts.
