National Football Post reports Eagles vice president of player personnel Tom Gamble is the "top candidate" to replace former Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland, who "mutually" parted ways with the team Tuesday afternoon.
Gamble came to the Eagles last offseason after spending eight years with the San Francisco 49ers. He has worked around the NFL but started his career working for his father, Harry, in the Eagles front office.
Game has never been a general manager in the NFL but seems to have the pedigree to make it happen.
The Dolphins are inclined to agree.
