The Philadelphia Eagles have signed Howie Roseman to a three-year contract extension. The team’s GM, whose deal was set to expire by the end of next season, will now be with the team in 2025. The extension comes at a weird time as the team has been relatively quiet after signing Haason Reddick.

This deal has been done for some time as the extension was signed back in February according to the Inquirer’s Jeff McLane.

Roseman has had an up and down track record since the 2017 season, where he put together a roster that ended up winning the first Super Bowl in franchise history. After that, the franchise has had to deal with the back-end years of several players’ contracts which put a strain on the team in regards to cap space.

Last season, Howie Roseman made a career-defining move as he traded away the former 2nd overall pick and Franchise QB Carson Wentz due to Wentz not liking the idea of the Eagles drafting Jalen Hurts in the previous draft. Roseman was heavily scrutinized for the move but has been praised for it as the 2nd round pick from the Colts turned into another first-round pick for the Eagles.

As the Eagles continue to navigate their way back to the promised land, it’s key that Roseman stays put. His chemistry with the new coaching staff led to one of the better drafts in recent memory, as the Eagles had one of the more productive draft classes last season. Sirianni and Roseman seem to speak a language the no other coach has been to with the heavily criticized GM.

Now with year two underway, Roseman’s main focus will be building this team with the personnel needed on both sides of the ball. With his future no longer in question, you have to wonder what his next move will be.
