Cross Seahawks director of college scouting Scott Fitterer off the list as a potential candidate for the Eagles’ personnel executive opening.

According to Zach Berman of the Inquirer and other reporters in Arizona, Seahawks GM John Schneider confirmed that Fitterer is staying put.

“He spoke with the Philadelphia Eagles, kept it on the down low,” Schneider said. “He’s staying with us.”

Fitterer was an attractive candidate, having worked his way up from being an area scout with Seattle. He has served in his current role since 2010.

T-Mac updated the GM search yesterday. According to various reports, still in the mix are Jaguars director of player personnel Chris Polian and Dolphins director of college scouting Chris Grier.

Tim is not hearing as much buzz on in-house candidate Ed Marynowitz as some others have.

We’ll see what happens in the coming days. Perhaps a mystery candidate will emerge, or maybe Chip will go outside the box and give our intern Tucker an interview. After all, he’s been doing a tremendous job so far. Anyone know if I’m able to block that from happening (hypothetically, of course)?

We’ll have the latest as it unfolds.
