Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times writes that the Chicago Bears may consider settling on former Seahawks personnel man Tim Ruskell to lead the team’s personnel department with general manager Peter Angelo recently stepping down.
Ruskell currently serves as interim general manager, and was hired by Angelo as player personnel director two years ago after the Seahawks fired him in April 2010. Ruskell apparently is gaining more momentum as a candidate who can stay the course for a Chicago team that believes they still have a window with the current group to win a Super Bowl.
While praising Ruskell’s good work while in Seattle, the article also unfortunately fails to mention his failures, most of which we are very familiar with, including the Steve Hutchinson debacle, the Deion Branch trade, drafting a long snapper in the sixth round that never played a snap for the team and carrying two kickers on the active roster for an entire season.
