I found an interesting post about NFL Scouting/Personnel departments on, of all things, a Red Sox fan forum. Go figure. Anyway, the poster dug around the league to find out the structure of NFL scouting.personnel departments and I noticed something interesting. Here's the list.
Bengals - 2 Execs, call it 4 Scouts, 1 other football assistant. We'll be generous with those "consultants" and call them scouts.
Patriots - 7 Execs, 8 scouts, 5 other football assistants.
Arizona Cardinals - 4 Execs, 7 Scouts, 4 Others
Atlanta Falcons - 3 Execs, 10 Scouts, 2 others
Baltimore Ravens - 7 Execs, 6 Scouts, 5 others
Buffalo Bills - No Info, and they don't appear to have a Media Guide on their official site.
Carolina Panthers - No Info, No Media Guide
Chicago Bears - 3 Execs, 7 Scouts, 2 Others
Cleveland Browns - 3 Execs, 11 Scouts, 4 Others
Dallas Cowboys - No Info, No Media Guide, NO SEARCH FUNCTION ON TEAM WEBSITE. What the hell?
Denver Broncos - 5 Execs, 7 Scouts, 5 Others
Detroit Lions - 4 Execs, 8 Scouts, 2 Others
Green Bay Packers - 3 Execs, 8 Scouts, 3 Others
Houston Texans - 4 Execs, 9 Scouts, no idea on the Others because they have a broader "Football Operations" category, no separate "Player Personnel" section.
Indianapolis Colts - 5 Execs, 10 Scouts, 4 Others
Jacksonville Jaguars - 12 Man Scouting Department - They actually describe everyone under a "Scouts" section, so they don't get cut up like the other teams.
Kansas City Chiefs - 2 Execs, 9 Scouts
Miami Dolphins - 4 Execs, 11 Scouts, 2 Others
Minnesota Vikings - 2 Execs, 10 Scouts, 3 Others
New Orleans Saints - 3 Execs, 10 Scouts, 3 Others
New York Giants - 6 Execs, 13 Scouts, 3 Others
New York Jets - No Info, No Media Guide
Oakland Raiders - 8 Man Scouting Department
Philadelphia Eagles - 3 Execs, 10 Scouts
Pittsburgh Steelers - 1 Exec, 8 Scouts, 4 Others
San Diego Chargers - 3 Execs, 9 Scouts, 2 Others
San Francisco 49ers - 3 Execs, 9 Scouts, 4 Others
Seattle Seahawks - 4 Execs, 10 Scouts
St Louis Rams - 5 Execs, 11 Scouts, 1 Other
Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 3 Execs, 11 Scouts
Tennessee Titans - 2 Execs, 8 Scouts, 3 Others
Washington Redskins - Media Guide Leaves out Scouting
The Redskins are one of five tems that don't have scouting info on their site.
The others, you'll notice, are Buffalo, Dallas, Carolina and the Jets.
Anybody have any idea why a team might do that? I'm honestly curious because I can't think of a good one off the top of my head.
