Rumor Mill: Candidates For Personnel Job

According to a report from ESPN'S Adam Schefter, the Eagles have requested permission to interview the Miami Dolphins' Chris Grier, the Jacksonville Jaguars' Chris Polian and the Houston Texans' Brian Gaine for the team's open personnel position.

Grier, who serves as the Dolphins' director of college scouting, has been with the Dolphins' organization for the past 14 seasons. This past year was his fourth as the director of college scouting. Before that Grier served as a national scout and assistant director of college scouting for the Dolphins for eight years (2003-2010).

Polian is currently the director of pro personnel for the Jaguars, his second year in the position. The son of long-time NFL executive Bill Polian, he served as the Colts' vice president and general manager from 2009-2011 before joining the Jaguars during the 2013 offseason.

Gaine just finished his first season as the Texans' director of pro personnel and his 15th year in the league. He spent six seasons with the Miami Dolphins (2008-2013), serving as the team's assistant general manager in 2012 and 2013. Prior to his arrival in Miami, Gaine spent three seasons (2005-07) as the assistant director of pro scouting  for the Dallas Cowboys after six years (1999-2004) in the New York Jets' Scouting Department.

Other names linked to the Eagles' search include: the Eagles' own Ed Marynowitz, Lions vice president of pro personnel Sheldon White, Packers director of player personnel Eliot Wolf.
