Eagles promote Connor Barwin in massive front office restructuring

The Eagles announced their extensive list of front office promotions and new signings on Friday afternoon.

As reported earlier today, Jon Ferrari and Alex Halaby have been promoted to deputy managing directors, but Howie Roseman has made numerous other moves as part of a comprehensive front office restructuring.

The Eagles front office is structured on two levels, with hiring falling either under football operations (salary cap, financial planning, player development, equipment, etc.) or scouting.

The Eagles have lost many high-ranking members of the scouting department this offseason, with Brandon Brown, Ian Cunningham, Catherine Raiche and Andy Weidl all leaving for assistant general manager positions and several other scouts and assistants letting go.

Among the main hires and promotions besides Ferrari and Halaby:

• Former Broncos Vice President of Player Personnel Matt Russell has been named Senior Director of Personnel/Advisor to the General Manager.

• Former Steelers director of scouting Brandon Hunt has been named director of scouting.

• Former Browns national scout Charles Walls has been named director of player personnel.

• Former Eagles Pro Bowler Connor Barwin has been promoted from special assistant to the general manager to director of player development.

• Eagles Vice President of Team Security Dom DiSandro has been promoted to Senior Advisor to the General Manager/Chief Security Officer.

• Eagles personnel director Dave Caldwell has been promoted to senior personnel director/advisor to the general manager.

• Eagles director of college scouting Alan Wolking has been promoted to director of player personnel.

Among the scouting recruits are two South Jersey natives who played in the NFL: Rod Streater of Burlington Township was hired as a Northeast Region scout and Ben Ijalana was hired as a scouting assistant.

Streater, who played at Temple, spent six years as an NFL wide receiver and caught 127 passes for 1,755 yards and 10 touchdowns. Ijalana, who played at Villanova, spent four years as an offensive lineman in the NFL.
