After spending some time with both of the recent spring leagues, Trey Brown is back on the NFL GM radar. The current Bengals exec has caught the Raiders’ attention.
The Raiders, per NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero (on Twitter), sent an interview request to Brown. The former Eagles staffer caught on with the Bengals as a scout last year. While Brown’s current title does not match most others in GM mixes, he has been part of this process before — including with the Raiders.
A six-year Eagles staffer from 2013-18, Brown rose to the position of director of college scouting during his final three years in Philly. This garnered him attention from the Bills, who interviewed the then-32-year-old exec for the GM job that went to Brandon Beane in 2017. The Raiders then interviewed Brown for the job that went to Mike Mayock. With Mayock and Jon Gruden now out of the picture, Mark Davis is eyeing Brown once again.
In between Brown’s Raiders interview and Bengals hire, he spent time with the Alliance of American Football and XFL — with the Birmingham Iron and St. Louis BattleHawks, respectively. Brown, 36, began his NFL career with the Patriots in 2010. Brown joins Patriots director of player personnel Dave Ziegler and Colts VP of player personnel Ed Dodds to receive Raiders interview requests.
