Jets and Eagles fire several of their scouts after the Draft

After the NFL Draft both the Jets and Eagles fired scouts. How could the Jets fire scouts after their best Draft in ten years?

This week is Doomsday for NFL scouts, because they never know who is going to be retained or who is going to get released.  After the draft, many teams will make changes. Well today two teams began getting rid of their scouts. 

The Jets announced that they have fired director of pro personnel Brendan Prophett and college scouts Rick Courtright, David Hinson, Cole Hufnagel, Chris Prescott and Seth Turner, just several days after the draft.

“I appreciate their contributions to the organization and wish them the best in the future,” General Manager Mike Maccagnan said in a statement.

The Eagles also began cleaning house. According to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News, the Eagles have fired director of college scouting Anthony Patch, pro personnel director Rick Mueller and area scout Brad Obee.

Too our scouting friends, Good LUCK!!
