Appealing GM Openings could make it Tough for DeCosta to Stick Around

The Baltimore Ravens have envisioned that Director of Player Personnel, Eric DeCosta, would be the heir apparent to the team’s current General Manager, Ozzie Newsome, whenever he decided to step down.

DeCosta, 40, has been with the Ravens since they have been in existence (1996) and has turned down GM jobs in multiple cities to stay in Charm City.

However, Albert Breer of the NFL Network is reporting that DeCosta is intrigued by some of the openings that have become available after the regular season came to an end this week.

Two possible landing spots Breer is reporting are the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts.

With Jerry Angelo out in Chciago after 11 seasons and Bill and Chris Polian out in Indianapolis, the loyal DeCosta could bolt after season’s end.

The opportunity to take over one of the league’s biggest franchises like the Bears or Colts doesn’t present itself too often. If owners come knocking on the door of DeCosta, he’d be foolish not to at least listen to a potential offer.
