Roseman received multi-year extension in June


If (when) there’s a house cleaning in Philly after the 2012 season, one of the guys who helped build the underachieving Eagles won’t be getting the broom.

Or, if he does, he’ll be getting paid handsomely to no longer work for the team.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that G.M. Howie Roseman’s contract was extended by four or five years when Joe Banner stepped aside earlier this year.

Apart from the large buyout that would result from firing Roseman along with coach Andy Reid, who has one year left on his contract, Lurie made it clear during the 8-8-gets-Reid-fired press conference that the owner believes in Roseman.

“Howie has done an excellent job,” Lurie said in August.  “I think general managers get measured by player acquisitions, the draft, trades, how they communicate with the rest of the organization, how they communicate with the players, [and] their strategy going forward.

“There is a lot to analyze and I think Howie is doing an outstanding job and as I said, it is early to make a determination of this draft class.  Just based on a few months it is extremely promising.”

If (when) Reid goes and Roseman stays, it likely will mean that Lurie believes the team is talented and that Reid has failed to get the most out of the players’ abilities.

And if (when) Reid no longer is the coach, Roseman could have a central role in hiring the next coach of the team.

  1. He has put together some talent filled rosters. What the coaches have done and continue to do with those players is another story.

  2. Does that mean more Danny Watkins and Brandon Graham 1st round bust when they could have had the likes of Jason Pierre-Paul or Earl Thomas as the fans wanted?

  3. roseman has done a good job whatever reid wanted roseman got it. hes a smart young guy who knows how to handle money. I wouldnt mind if he stuck around. I’ve been a big reid supporter since the begininng but it’s time to clean house in philly

  4. This Eagles regime has been flat out horrible at drafting. Desean Jackson, Maclin, McCoy, and Trent Cole are the only impact players on the roster that the team drafted. And with Maclin, the Eagles traded up to get him when they could have sat where they were and taken Hakeem Nicks. Oops. 28 year old Danny Watkins? Brandon Graham over JPP? It’s an absolutely horrendous record, and Roseman should be out the door along with Reid because of it.

  5. Is this the guy that put together the offensive line? From what I saw last night it’s not Reid’s fault.

  6. Yea the offensive line he put together was great. Defensive line gets sacks all the time, they’re great.
    Nnamdi Asomugha signing was great.
    Filling the safety void with Kurt Coleman is straight genius.
    Any linebacker theyve drafted or signed via free agency has been great.
    Drafting Danny Watkins 26th overall was great.
    Drafting Jaiquawn Jarrett in the 2nd round was great. Signing Demtress Bell was awesome. The problem here is Michael Vick obviously.

    Howard Mudd still has a job? He is cool ill give him that, but his philosophy of having multiple plays in a row where two offensive lineman block no one at all is starting to get old to me.

  7. I really don’t think coaching is the problem I think the players who can be explosive and be playmakers are just not the type of people that put winning above themselves and don’t care about the team because they already got paid (yes I’m looking at Desean Jackson)

  8. Roseman did put together a good talent team that has not worked together as a good team.Roseman brought in Nnamdi,Babin and,Jenkins threw FA(which is incredible).Roseman made trades for Jason Peters and DRC (Who are doing good for the Eagles).Not to mention that he also manages to put together all of these star FA’s and still able to lead the NFL in cap room is genius if you ask me.

  9. Lack of talent is not the issue in Philly. Many, many, GM’s would take Roseman’s record for hitting on draft picks and no one can say they haven’t generally gotten the good end of most trades they’ve done.

    This coaching staff has not been able to turn an above average collection of players into an above average team. Period. And it’s time for a change.

  10. Anyone that tries to put ANY BLAME revolving around the philadelphia eagles on anyone but ANDY REID clearly has no idea what they are talking about.

    This man controls all aspects of football operations from FA signings to drafting to playcalling.

    Reid, Mudd, Washbourne, Mornhenwig all need thier walking papers.
    This team is a joke, a bunch of heartless undersized misfits.

  11. the “house cleaning” will include Vick and a couple of back-up linemen, Reids not going anywhere unless he wants to.

  12. I believe Howie had his fingerprints all over the roster moves the last 2-3 years. These are not Andy Reid type players. I think Reid needs to go, but if Roseman was involved in putting this team together he needs to go to.

  13. I’m a Saints fan. But, I promise you last night I saw a lot more issues than the QB. You OL is the worst in the league. And, on defense you personal is adequate at best

  14. Considering the Eagles look good on paper with all that cap room I can see why he would say that but this team isn’t going anywhere anyway fast.

  15. You dummies forget the birds were missing 4 of 5 oline starters, including the best LT in the NFL. Then lose Herremans during the game. Get a clue!

  16. Does anyone else notice, that when Marty M. became the Offensive Coor., we started loosing seasons?
    Or, how about this, moving Juan from Offensive Line coach toe Defense, and replacing him with Washburn, is when the Eagles really started to go downhill…

    2010 was a stellar year for Vick and the Eagles.. 1 INT in the end zone away from beating the eventually Superbowl champs.

    Sean whats his name was the defense coordinator, and Castillo was the o line coach..
    Didn’t have the problems that year..

    enter 2011.. castillo, washburn, with the same cast of players.. you tell me what changed if it wasn’t that…

  17. The eagles are bad but not as bad as this person’s grasp of the english language.
