Emery was the Bears’ GM for a tumultuous three seasons, which saw him fire coach Lovie Smith and hire Marc Trestman.
Before coming to the Bears in 2012, Emery had worked 14 years as a scout for the Chiefs, Falcons and Bears.
Asked former Bears GM Phil Emery 1 hour ago if he was joining the Falcons staff. He said "I don't know what you're talking about."— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) January 26, 2016
