Report: Dolphins Interested In Gamble

Tom Gamble’s most recent stint with the Eagles could be a short one.

According to Jason Cole of the National Football Post, Gamble is a leading candidate to take over as the Miami Dolphins’ general manager:

Philadelphia director of player personnel Tom Gamble is the top candidate to replace former Miami General Manager Jeff Ireland, a source said Tuesday night. Gamble quickly emerged as the man owner Stephen Ross wants to get to run the organization after the team’s latest shakeup.

The Dolphins announced Tuesday that they were parting ways with Jeff Ireland.

The Eagles added Gamble as vice president of player personnel last February to replace Ryan Grigson, who went to Indianapolis. Gamble first spent time with the Eagles’ organization from 1988 to 1994. He spent eight seasons with the San Francisco 49ers – seven as director of pro personnel and one as director of player personnel – before rejoining the Eagles. He previously worked as a college scout for the Indianapolis Colts as well.

Multiple teams with GM openings showed interest in Gamble last offseason, but ultimately he landed in Philadelphia and reported to Howie Roseman.
