Just want your thoughts on:
Tom Gamble - Director of Player Personnel - SF 49ers
Kevin Abrams - Asst. GM - NY Giants
Eric DeCosta - Asst GM - Balt. Ravens
My thoughts, I would love to have DeCosta. Here is a guy who, for the last 17 years, has work under Ozzie Newson to build the Ravens to a Super Bowl contender for years. Just look at who he help bring to the team: Ed Reed, Terrell Suggs, Jamal Lewis, Bart Scott, Le'Ron McClain, Haloti Ngata, Marshal Yanda, Ben Grubbs, and Ray Rice along with significant contributors Tony Weaver, Mark Clayton, Chester Taylor, Ed Hartwell, Dawan Landry, Jason Brown, Jared Gaither, Sam Koch, and Lardarius Webb.
Here is the problem. DeCosta signed a new contract with the Ravens in 2012, making him one of the highest paid executives in football and ensure that he stayed on as Ozzie Newsome's eventual replacement. He can get out of the contract by being presented a higher position, but the money and team has to be right for him. We are taking about a man who turned down the GM position with the Bear.
