After seeing a handful of their front office executives take interviews with other NFL organizations this offseason, the Green Bay Packers finally lost one to another team. However, it was not Eliot Wolf or Brian Gutekunst, who had GM interviews, but rather another member of the personnel department.

According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Tim Terry is leaving Green Bay for a job with the Kansas City Chiefs:

Terry gets a significant promotion here, as he will be in charge of pro scouting in Kansas City. This job will result in him reporting up to John Dorsey, the Chiefs GM who previously worked with Terry in Green Bay. That familiarity almost certainly plays a role in this hire.

The Packers website notes that Terry had been a member of the pro personnel department since 2004, when he was hired following the conclusion of his NFL career. He played linebacker for several seasons, including a few with the Seattle Seahawks in which he recorded two forced fumbles and 3.5 sacks.

The vacancy that Terry fills comes as a result of the Chiefs electing to part ways with Will Lewis, who formerly held that role. However, they recently elected not to keep him for 2017, leaving the job open.

The Packers typically like to promote from within their own front office, and there are a number of individuals who may be candidates from this job. Pro scout Chad Brinker would appear to be the likeliest candidate, as he is the only individual with that title currently in the organization. The team could also shift over a college scout into the pro personnel area, though that seems less likely.
