Heckert and Spagnuolo ... to Denver?
A report suggesting Eagles general manager Tom Heckert could wind up in Denver with Steve Spagnulo as part of a package deal would make a lot of sense except for one thing.
Heckert: Looking at options?
I don't see the Spagnuolo that's deeply rooted in the Northeast moving two time zones away.
Then again, no owner is more supportive than Broncos boss Pat Bowlen. If Spags felt
comfortable with Heckert as a condition of the job, you can book it he'd get him assuming Bowlen wants the Giants defensive coordinator. Broncos officials reportedly met Saturday with Spagnuolo.
Spagnuolo might have his pick of jobs in the East and one time zone away in the Midwest, if that's what he likes. He will be a head coach, though.
Heckert has a deep respect for Spagnuolo. Had Heckert gotten the Falcons G.M. job last year Spags might have been the coach. Heckert could fit in anywhere. And I think he would flourish with the final say on personnel because he's found precisely the players the Eagles have requested to fit into their system.
