Howie Roseman spoke to the media on Saturday afternoon, explaining why some players were cut and why some were retained.
The Philadelphia Eagles accepted and participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
Howie Roseman addressed a variety of topics as the Eagles opened training camp on Friday.
The Eagles announced Saturday that they have traded running back Bryce Brown to the Buffalo Bills for a conditional 2015 fourth-round pick, which can become a 2016 third-round pick.
The Eagles selected Florida cornerback Jaylen Watkins, the older brother of Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins, with the first pick in the fourth round of the NFL Draft.
Marcus Smith looked like he was done. The Hardaway High offensive line had been holding up well that night against Upson Lee, when they suffered a breakdown—and left their quarterback, Smith, out in no-man’s land with three defenders closing fast.
The NFL Draft is a yearly exercise in hype, panic and, if we’re being honest, ignorance.
The Chiefs pick may have seemed somewhat harmless from a fan perspective, but inside the Eagles war room there was some angst.
DeSean Jackson was released by the Eagles on March 28th. Once the angry mob subsided, conventional wisdom dictated that the Eagles will draft a receiver with the 22nd overall pick to replace the 27 year-old Pro Bowler.
On Monday the Eagles finally broke their month-long silence after releasing DeSean Jackson on March 28th. Chip Kelly and Howie Roseman explained the move was purely a “football decision”, and Eagles general manager Roseman joined Angelo Cataldi and the WIP Morning Show to discuss the matter further.
Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman maintained the same “safe speak” mode as their head coach, Chip Kelly, on Monday in explaining why the Eagles cut Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson, after a career-best season.
What you’re about to read is not an endorsement of trading DeSean Jackson. This is not something I’m campaigning for.
When NFL free agency arrives, the Philadelphia Eagles should be one of the most aggressive teams in the league.
The Eagles are either very close, or not close at all, to finding a way to part with wide receiver DeSean Jackson before next season, depending on who you talk to.
The Eagles made a big commitment to center Jason Kelce when they gave him a six-year, $37.5 million contract extension. The dollars and years were an obvious factor in keeping Kelce in Philadelphia, but it wasn’t the only reason. The coach, and the front office, have impressed Kelce as well.
