The Philadelphia Eagles' season may be viewed as a disappointment by many fans who still have the sweet taste of their 2018 Super Bowl victory fresh in their hearts and minds. They (literally) hobbled their way to an NFC East division title, doing so in the team's final regular-season game against the Giants before being soundly beaten at home by visiting Seattle in the Wild Card round. Despite the loss, the team's overall performance was enough to garner several future job opportunities within the NFL for some folks in the Eagles' organization.

Many teams have already reached out to their front office with questions regarding defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, and now current VP of football operations Andrew Berry has been the subject of multiple inquiries, including one from the Carolina Panthers.

Carolina is completely revamping the look of their team, and that apparently is starting with new faces in their highest positions of power. They already handed out a massive seven-year, $60 million deal to former Baylor head man Matt Rhule, effectively placing their long-term trust in him, and are reportedly looking to do the same with Berry.

Berry spent three seasons as the Browns Vice President of player personnel before moving on to take the Philly job in 2019. He was also on the Colts' staff from 2009 to 2015, where he earned tremendous praise from Bill Polian. He graduated from Harvard with a bachelor's degree in economics and a masters in computer science, while starting at corner all four years for the Crimson football team.

Berry would be Panthers owner David Tepper's second personnel hire.
