The Eagles announced Friday that, in a long-expected move, they have named Howie Roseman as general manager, succeeding Tom Heckert, who left for Cleveland.
Roseman, 34, has been with the team for 11 years. He spent the past two seasons as the team's vice president of player personnel. In his role as GM, he will work closely with head coach Andy Reid in all aspects of the player personnel department. He will manage the college and pro scouting staffs, organize draft meetings and the draft board, scout the top collegiate players around the country and assist in formulating the team's roster throughout the year.
He originally joined the Eagles in 2000 as salary cap/staff counsel. He was elevated to director of football administration in ’03 and to vice president of football administration in ’06.
