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.
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.
It was a memorable weekend in football, both on the college and professional scenes.
The Eagles have not won a Super Bowl during Jeff Lurie’s tenure as owner of the team, but that hasn’t stopped the team from being one of the most valuable in football.
Barry Morrison, regional director of the Anti-Defamation League in Philadelphia, says that too often such behavior by professional athletes is too quickly dismissed.
Roseman was only 34 when Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie named him general manager on Jan. 29, 2010. Three years later, he’s still the youngest person in the league to hold that title.
