The Pittsburgh Steelers' recent changes to their front office have left pro scouting coordinator Brandon Hunt in an interesting situation. He could, in theory, stick with the team or pursue another opportunity elsewhere. 

Well, according to Geoff Mosher, the Philadelphia Eagles are expected to add Hunt to their scouting department. 

Hunt interviewed with the Eagles earlier this year. He met with general manager Howie Roseman for a front-office role. 

A deal between Hunt and the Eagles hasn't been finalized at this time. 

Hunt was considered a strong option for the Steelers' general manager vacancy. The job ultimately went to Omar Khan.

As for the Eagles, they made notable changes to their scouting department once the NFL Draft came to an end. 

In addition to parting ways with director of scouting operations Casey Weidl, the Eagles dismissed player personnel executive T.J. McCreight, southwest area scout Shawn Heinlen and scouting assistant Evan Pritt. 

Hunt would be a nice addition to the Eagles' revamped scouting department.
