John Dorsey Working As Consultant For Eagles

Former Chiefs and Browns general manager John Dorsey has been “quietly” working for the Eagles over the past few months, reports Mike Garafolo of NFL Network (via Twitter). The 60-year-old has been serving as a consultant for general manager Howie Roseman.

According to Garafolo, the Eagles have been focused on strengthening their “talent evaluation,” especially following the departures of Joe Douglas (Jets) and Andrew Berry (Browns). Dorsey is thought of “extremely highly inside that building,” and he could potentially stick around for a full-time role in 2021.

Of course, Dorsey would probably prefer a GM gig, and there have been some rumblings that he could be a candidate for potential openings. Earlier this month, we heard that the Texans were planning to interview the executive for their GM vacancy.

Dorsey has been chased out of both Kansas City and Cleveland, but he’s also a big reason why both of those teams are currently successful. For the Chiefs, Dorsey was responsible for drafting MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes, wideout Tyreek Hill, and tight end Travis Kelce. While the Browns struggled during their first two seasons with Baker Mayfield at the helm, the team has taken a step forward this year. Dorsey’s other acquisitions and selections, including cornerback Denzel Ward, running backs Nick Chubb, and defensive notables Sheldon Richardson and Olivier Vernon, have also played major roles this season.

  1. Dorsey is a roster genius. No teams accumulate more pro bowl level players faster than Dorsey teams. Strange that he’s out of a GM job. Not subservient/politic enough for billionaire NFL owners?

      He can get you pro bowlers just not a winning team without Andy Reid being in charge. His work in Cleveland was a joke. Don’t want him replacing Roseman.

    You would think the man that drafted Patrick Mahomes and built a chunk of the Chiefs roster would have a GM job.

  3. Yep it is

    Brett Veach was the reason the Chiefs drafted Mahomes. He scouted him and stayed on his bandwagon. He convinced Andy Reid to look at him and then Dorsey to trade up for him. Dorsey just needs to keep quiet to employees and he would be very successful because he is also a heck of a talent finder also.

      Dorsey couldn’t manage the salary cap in KC either. I’m good with Veach as GM.

      • Polish Hammer

        Exactly! Veach was Andy’s boy in Philly that was given the big assignments and made some good draft/scouting decisions. So he took him to KC as he knew he’d be a good GM.

    jeff please fire Howie, let Dorsey become the GM full-time this is/would be a great move for the Eagles front office

      No it would suck. You want a guy who trades star o-linemen for overpaid WRs to be the guy fixing the eagles? The line already is aging and injured and we have cap issues. Look at how well he did with the cap in KC and tell me he can fix it.
