Gamble was thought to be a very good candidate for either position but has decided to stay put in the City of Brotherly Love. Gamble had spent eight seasons with the San Francisco 49ers as the director of player personnel before leaving to take on his new role in Philadelphia.
Originally, Gamble actually began his NFL front office career with the Eagles, working in various roles between 1988 and 1994.
It's a tough spot for Gamble or any other candidate to step into the Buccaneers or Dolphins job, simply because they can't choose the head coach. With Lovie Smith just being hired in Tampa and the Dolphins committed to Joe Philbin, the general manager can't pick his own guy as the process normally goes.
