NFC East Notes: Eagles, Roseman, Redskins

This week, Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman sat down with Peter Schrager of FOX Sports (audio link) to discuss a wide range of topics, including the year he spent effectively squeezed out of the Eagles’ front office. Howie Roseman

When we restructured last year and I was put in a different role for the 2015 season, one of the things I asked Jeffrey [Lurie] was, if it was OK, I had always envisioned if I wasn’t going to be doing the same thing that I would do what a coach does when he takes a year away from it and they go visit the programs that they respect and appreciate and talk about all the things that take up their time — player personnel and analytics and sports science and relationships and team building — all the things that we spend our time on,” said Roseman (transcript via Philadelphia Magazine). “What an unbelievable experience. You think about it and you go, well, that year must have been tremendously hard and difficult, and I look back at it and it may have been one of the best years of my life because of the perspective.”

Roseman was pushed out of the picture by former coach Chip Kelly, but Kelly is out and he is now back at the helm.
