The Philadelphia Eagles have announced changes to their football operations department, hiring three notable former players in Darren Sproles, Brent Celek and Connor Barwin. All three of those players were big contributors to Philadelphia on and off of the field, fan favorites in the city, and intelligent players. 

Here is the full list of hires:

• Tom Hunkele - Director of Sports Medicine

• Ted Rath - Director of Sports Performance

• Jeremiah Washburn - Director of Player Personnel/Senior Defensive Assistant

• Connor Barwin - Special Assistant to the General Manager

• Brent Celek - Personnel Consultant

• Darren Sproles - Personnel Consultant


Barwin gets the largest role as the special assistant to the GM. Barwin told 94WIP Morning Show in November that he's interested in a front office role. Sproles, who just retired, gets to remain with the franchise.
