New Orleans Saints area scout Josh Lucas, a Harvard graduate who spent a decade working his way up the NFL ladder, is joining the Chicago Bears as director of player personnel.

Lucas joins Ryan Pace, who served as the Saints' director of player personnel before being hired as Bears' general manager earlier this month.

The Bears confirmed the hire on Sunday afternoon. It was first reported by Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Lucas joined the Saints in 2005 as a scouting assistant and was promoted to area scout in 2007, according to his team bio.

He was assigned to the southern region in 2013 after scouting the southwest for five years, where he filed reports on college players like safety Kenny Vaccaro.

This is three straight years now with the bears trying to mock the saints. Of course for all we know Payton is Chicago's GM.

Re: New Orleans Saints scout Josh Lucas leaving for Chicago Bears

Only concern I'd have is that we're losing talented scouts because of dissatisfaction with the command/decision structure on draft day(s)...

Would love to get real, honest exit interviews and find out what they really thought of some of the picks we've made these last ten years...

Considering both of these guys were the ones getting promoted multiple times, I would say they had major input on who we drafted and who we scouted. For me that means goodbye don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Honestly this concerns me about as much as losing Joe Vitt would...

We're cleaning house alright.

It's more like they are jumping ship.

Re: New Orleans Saints scout Josh Lucas leaving for Chicago Bears

Assigned to the "southern region" does that include Tulane and LSU? Tulane had a kicker and LSU had all sorts of talent. None of which were drafted or FA signings. Where is the loss?
