Report: Eagles Parting Ways With Player Personnel Executive Rick Mueller

The Eagles are parting ways with player personnel executive Rick Mueller, according to a report Thursday by the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.

Per the report, Mueller is still under contract but already looking for another job, as his office space no longer exists at the NovaCare Complex.

Mueller spent five seasons with the Eagles. As well as player personnel executive, Mueller also served the Eagles as director of pro personnel and pro personnel executive throughout his tenure, which started in 2012. He was fired by the Chip Kelly player personnel regime in 2015 before being brought back by Roseman when the current executive vice president of football operations retook the reins.
