Former Eagles G.M. Tom Heckert wasn’t out the door before the reports surfaced that Howie Roseman would take his place.
On Friday, the Eagles made the inevitable official, promoting Roseman from vice president of player personnel to general manager. Roseman joined the Eagles in 2000.
Roseman spent two seasons in his previous position and was quickly recognized as a riser in the organization. There is a line of thinking that the Eagles encouraged Heckert to interview elsewhere, including last offseason, because of Roseman’s presence.
