Whether Philadelphia fans like it or not, Howie Roseman is here to stay — at least for another three years. The Eagles’ general manager agreed to a three-year contract extension, per Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice.
Roseman had one season left on his previous deal since his last contract in 2018. He is now signed through the 2025 NFL season.

THE HOWIE ROSEMAN TIMELINE
Roseman’s career with the Philadelphia Eagles began in 2000 when he was hired as an intern to work on the team’s salary cap problems. After climbing the front office ladder, he was promoted to general manager in 2010. Despite the role, final decisions pertaining to the team were left up to head coach Andy Reid.
After Reid’s reign came to a close, Roseman assisted in finding Chip Kelly. He became the primary decision-maker, with the exception of the 2015 season.
In 2016, Roseman was on an upswing — Doug Pederson was hired, a number of signings and trades were successful, and the franchise won their first Super Bowl.
The following three offseasons were less than ideal after some senseless additions to the team. The Eagles went from Champions to one of the worst teams in the league, finishing with a 4-11-1 season in 2020. Though fans were reaching their breaking point with Roseman, (including a number of memes circling the Internet regarding how terrible he was) Lurie never swayed.
Luckily, 2021 proved to be much different. Trading Carson Wentz and acquiring the largest dead money in NFL history, actually became a win-win for Philadelphia. The Eagles acquired DeVonta Smith out of the deal. Roseman then ensured stability after extending contracts for Dallas Goedert, Jordan Mailata, Avonte Maddox, and Josh Sweat.
The Eagles are now looking forward to long-term success as Roseman gets to work in free agency and the NFL Draft. Philadelphia has ten picks, including three first-round selections.
The Eagles have appeared in the playoffs six times over Roseman’s 12-year span, including one massive Super Bowl victory. His new contract ensures he will be here for the same length of time as head coach Nick Sirianni.
