Executive Vice President of Football Operations, Philadelphia Eagles
Howie Roseman is in his 16th season in Philadelphia and his first as the team’s executive vice president of football operations after being named to the post on January 2, 2015. Roseman previously served as the team’s general manager from 2010-14 after spending the previous two seasons as the team’s vice president of player personnel.
In his role, Roseman directs contract negotiations, salary cap management and NFL strategic matters while also overseeing the team’s medical staff, equipment staff and more.
In 2013, Roseman played a vital role assisting chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie in the team’s search for a new head coach, which ultimately brought renowned Oregon coach Chip Kelly east to Philadelphia. Behind an explosive offense, the Eagles won the NFC East in Kelly’s first year in the NFL.
In his first year as general manager in 2010, Roseman oversaw a major overhaul of the roster, making it one of the youngest in the NFL. That revamped Eagles squad earned an NFC East division championship.
Roseman’s tenacity, creativity and ability to develop and nurture positive relationships in every part of his job has played a significant role in Roseman’s ascent within the Eagles organization.
After relentlessly pursuing jobs in the front office of an NFL team, Roseman finally got his foot in the door with the Eagles in 2000 as salary cap/staff counsel, and has since continuously worked his way up the ladder.
Roseman was elevated to director of football administration in 2003 and to vice president of football administration in 2006. In that role, he worked in the personnel department evaluating players around the NFL and for the draft. He also represented the team to the NFL on contract, salary cap, and player personnel matters.
In 2007, Roseman was invited to participate in the NFL-Stanford Program for managers at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, a program developed by the NFL to promote development of leaders within the league.
Roseman is also active in the Philadelphia-area community, contributing to a variety of initiatives involving military and children. In fact, he was named Honorary Commander for the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst for his continued efforts with the military. His charitable endeavors have benefited the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, USA Football, Pop Warner and Cop Wheels.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, Roseman earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida before earning a JD degree from Fordham Law School. Howie and his wife, Mindy, reside in suburban Philadelphia with their four children.
