Ian Rapoport reports that the Eagles have already denied the Panthers permission to interview Andrew Berry for their executive vice president job.
Rapoport adds that Philadelphia has the right to deny permission since it would not be a GM position with the Panthers.
Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Panthers have requested permission to interview Eagles VP of football operations Andrew Berry for their executive vice president job.
The Panthers have said that they’re looking to hire an executive to work alongside GM Marty Hurney, but this is the first interview they’ve requested up to this point.
Over the weekend, Adam Schefter reported that Berry was considered the “favorite” to be hired as the Browns’ next GM and paired with new HC Kevin Stefanski.
Berry was hired by the Colts as a scouting assistant back in 2009 and worked his way up to pro scouting coordinator. The Browns would later hire Berry as their VP of Player Personnel for the 2016 season.
Berry departed Cleveland to become the Eagles VP of football operations lats February.
We’ll have more regarding the Panthers as the news is available.
