UPDATE: A note of caution.
On #ATL exec Lionel Vital, my understand is it’s more of a feeling than anything official that he’s likely to stay rather than be Bucs GM— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 20, 2014
Good news for those who like a little continuity in their front office of choice, as Lionel Vital will stay with the Falcons:
#Falcons dir of player personnel Lionel Vital just to the AJC that he's staying with the team. He'd interviewed for the Tampa Bay GM spot.— D. Orlando Ledbetter (@AJCFalcons) January 20, 2014
Vital's a longtime scout with a highly-regarded eye for talent. This likely won't be the last time he interviews for an outside job, but it'll be nice not to have him jumping ship to a division rival before the draft.
Your thoughts on Vital's return?
