rotoworldFalcons hired ex-Rams GM Billy Devaney as a regional scout.
Devaney was a trainwreck as the Rams GM from 2008-2011, building a 10-38 team over that span. He'd been working at ESPN as an analyst recently. Devaney returns to Atlanta where he was the assistant GM in 2007. In his new role as a regional scout, Devaney will cover the West region. It's a solid hire for Atlanta.
This is our 4th person in our front office with GM experience (Dimitroff, Pioli and McKay being the others). Regional scout is a step up from an entry level position so there is nothing bad about this hire in my eyes.
