From everything I'm hearing, Tom Penn is signed, sealed and delivered (or at least completely agreed to, give me some poetic license for the Stevie Wonder reference). I'm guessing a Tuesday press conference, just hours before the team learns its draft lottery fate.
At some point, discussion must turn to Penn's replacement. With no obvious internal candidates for promotion, I assume the team will look outside the organization for a cap guru.
Given Kevin Pritchard's active record on draft days past, one would suspect (hope) the hire to be made in short order. This isn't a position that can be left unfilled for long.
Link via the stud pups at Canis Hoopus. More once the hiring becomes truly official.

PS another belated thanks to Stop-n-Pop for fanshotting this for our pleasure. One of these years I'll get around to checking the fanshots before posting.
