Over the past few seasons, the Eagles front office has seen its fair share of executive leave for promotions with other teams. Now, the Eagles have lost another person who is rising up the executive ladder quickly.
According to TheLandOnDemand.com and 850 ESPN Cleveland Tony Grossi, the Browns were interested in Eagles vice president of football operations Catherine Raîche to serve in a high-ranking role within the Browns organization. Grossi added that the position would be equivalent to an assistant general manager’s job, making her the highest-ranking female executive in the NFL. USA Today reporter Jori Epstein confirmed the report. Raîche will join current Browns general manager Andrew Berry, who was also part of the Eagles organization, having the same title that Raîche last had with the Eagles.
Raîche had a hand in several parts of the Eagles organization, including pro and college scouting and staff and player development. Raîche joined the Eagles in 2019 to become their football operations and player personnel coordinator. Raîche previously had stops in the CFL with the Montreal Alouettes and Toronto Argonauts.
The Eagles’ front office has become a launching pad for several executives, most recently with Ian Cunningham heading to the Chicago Bears to become their assistant general manager and Brandon Brown taking the same role with the Giants. There may also be another person leaving in the future, with vice president of player personnel Andy Weidl being for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ soon-to-be-vacant general manager job.
Eagles general manager Howie Roseman addressed losing key front office Saturday after the NFL Draft was over. Roseman said that the team was ready for any future departures.
“We’ve lost a lot of really good people, and we still have a lot of really good people,” Roseman said. “Because of that, we’re going to have to continue to make additions and continue to fortify that group. I think we have a good process for that. I think we’re in a situation where we want to continue to grow talent in the building. We have good people in the building, and, just like our football team, we’re always looking to add good people, and I think you’re only as good as your people.”
