Early years

Roseman was born in Brooklyn, New York City on June 23, 1975, and is Jewish.[2][3][4] He grew up in Marlboro Township, New Jersey,[5] and later graduated from Marlboro High School.[6][7] From an early age, he had a calling to work in football. "When I was 9 or 10 [years old], people would ask what I wanted to be when I grew up and I told them I wanted to be the general manager of an NFL team," Roseman has said.[1]

Roseman began sending letters to every NFL team while he was still in high school. His persistence stepped up when he was an undergraduate at the University of Florida through his time at Fordham University School of Law. His job inquiries led him to connect with Mike Tannenbaum, then the pro personnel director of the New York Jets. Tannenbaum interviewed Roseman for a player personnel intern position in 1999, but he did not get the job.[7]

Professional career

After another pursuit, Roseman was hired by the Philadelphia Eagles as an intern to work on salary cap issues in 2000. He was promoted to director of football administration in 2003 and was later promoted to vice president of football administration in 2006. Roseman continued to climb the Eagles front office ladder, serving as the vice president of player personnel for two years before being named the Eagles general manager on January 29, 2010 after Tom Heckert was hired by the Cleveland Browns in the same role.[8] Although he had the title of general manager, Roseman served mainly in an advisory role to head coach and executive vice president of football operations Andy Reid, who had the final say in football matters.

Within his first season as general manager, Roseman went to work on the Eagles’ roster, building it into one of the youngest in the league. That revamped Eagles squad earned an NFC East division championship in 2010.[1]

Three years later, Roseman assisted Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie in the team's search for a new head coach in 2013, which ended with University of Oregon coach Chip Kelly coming to Philadelphia.[1] Kelly, like Reid, had the final say over the 53-man roster, so Roseman continued to serve mainly in an advisory role.

In their first season together in Philadelphia, Roseman and Kelly oversaw an Eagles team that won 10 games and a division championship, quite the turnaround from the team's 4-12 record in 2012.

Among Roseman's roles as the general manager, he oversaw the Eagles’ college and pro scouting departments, the team's medical, equipment, and video staffs, while also controlling the team's salary cap and supervising team security.[1]

In a change of front office structure, on January 2, 2015, Kelly was given general manager duties while Roseman was promoted to Executive Vice President of Football Operations. In this role, Roseman continued directing contract negotiations, managing the team's salary and also overseeing the team's medical staff, equipment staff and more.[1] After Kelly's dismissal, Roseman became the de facto GM again in 2016, and hired Doug Pederson as the Eagles' new head coach. Roseman helped the Eagles win Super Bowl LII when the team defeated the New England Patriots 41-33 in 2018.

Roseman also plays a large role in the Eagles' community efforts, contributing to a number of initiatives involving military and children. Roseman's charitable endeavors have benefited Eagles Youth Partnership, the team's public charity which serves over 50,000 low income children in the Greater Philadelphia region every year with a focus on health and education programming, as well as Eagles Care. In addition, Roseman has also worked with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, USA Football, Pop Warner and Cop Wheels. He was named Honorary Commander for the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst for his continued efforts with the military.

Personal life

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 Philadelphia with their four children.[1]

2011 Philadelphia Eagles season

The 2011 Philadelphia Eagles season was the franchise's 79th season in the National Football League, and the thirteenth under head coach Andy Reid. The Eagles had high hopes of competing for a Super Bowl, with several notable offseason acquisitions; however, they ultimately failed to improve on their 10-6 record from 2010 and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2007. However, they did win their last 4 games, in an attempt to pull out a miracle playoff berth, finishing 8–8, only 1 game behind the divisional winners and eventual Super Bowl champions, the New York Giants, and they swept the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins for the first time since 2006 and 2009, respectively. The Eagles played all their home games at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

2012 Philadelphia Eagles season

The 2012 Philadelphia Eagles season was the franchise's 80th season in the National Football League, and the fourteenth and final under head coach Andy Reid, as well as the tenth playing their home games at Lincoln Financial Field. Despite starting the season 3-1, the team would massively struggle, the team failed to improve on their 8–8 record from 2011, and went 1-11 in their final 12 games on route to a 4-12 record, and suffered their worst season since 1998 when they won only four games. Additionally, their four wins were not only by less than three points each, but all four of them had their deciding scores being acquired after the two-minute warnings. On December 31, 2012, Andy Reid was fired after 14 seasons as the Eagles' head coach. Also, for the fourth consecutive season, the team the Eagles played in their home opener went on to win the Super Bowl.

The Eagles traded the fifteenth selection in the 2012 NFL Draft to the Seattle Seahawks along with a fourth and a sixth round pick in exchange for the twelfth pick, where they selected defensive tackle Fletcher Cox.

2013 Philadelphia Eagles season

The 2013 Philadelphia Eagles season was the franchise's 81st season in the National Football League, and the first under head coach Chip Kelly. The Eagles improved on their 4–12 record from 2012, finishing 10–6 and clinching the NFC East division title and the playoffs for the first time since 2010, but after a close game, they lost to the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, by a score of 26–24. The season was noted for LeSean McCoy winning the NFL rushing title, and the extremely successful season by Nick Foles where he produced 27 touchdowns to only 2 interceptions. Foles also threw 7 touchdowns against the Oakland Raiders. This tied an NFL record for most touchdowns in a single game.

The Eagles had a three-quarterback competition with Nick Foles, Michael Vick and Matt Barkley, with Vick winning the job. After Vick got injured, however, Foles took over as quarterback and was eventually named the new starting quarterback despite Vick's return.

It took 62 weeks overall for the Eagles to win a home game; they continued the home losing streak that lasted throughout the rest of the 2012 season and extended it to 10 games, but they ended the streak by winning 24-16 against Washington at the Linc in Week 11.

2014 Philadelphia Eagles season

The 2014 Philadelphia Eagles season was the franchise's 82nd season in the National Football League and the second under head coach Chip Kelly. The Eagles led the NFC East for most of the year, but a loss to the Redskins in week 16 eliminated them from playoff contention.

After quarterback Nick Foles led them to a 6–2 start, despite struggling with turnovers more so than he did in 2013 (where he threw only 2 interceptions and lost 1 fumble), he was injured in week 9, causing backup Mark Sanchez to take over as starting quarterback. The Eagles led the NFC East until week 15, when they lost to their rivals, the Dallas Cowboys. With a loss to the 3–11 Washington Redskins in Week 16, and the Cowboys defeating the Indianapolis Colts, the Eagles were eliminated from playoff contention a week after they lost control of their division. The Eagles suffered one of their worst collapses in NFL history starting the season 9-3 before going 1-3 in the last four games with two losses against their division rivals, the Cowboys and Redskins.Despite missing the playoffs, they had 9 selections for the 2015 Pro Bowl, second only to the Denver Broncos, who had 11.

2016 Philadelphia Eagles season

The 2016 Philadelphia Eagles season was the franchise's 84th season in the National Football League and the first under head coach Doug Pederson. The Eagles named 2nd overall pick Carson Wentz the starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns. The Eagles started 3–0 including a 34–3 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Following their Week 4 bye week, the Eagles went 4–9, including a 2–4 record against their divisional rivals and after losing to the Ravens, were eliminated from playoff contention for the third consecutive season and fourth time in five seasons.

2018 Philadelphia Eagles season

The 2018 season was the Philadelphia Eagles' 86th season in the National Football League and their third under head coach Doug Pederson.

The Eagles entered the season as the defending champions of Super Bowl LII, and attempted to become the first team since the 2004 New England Patriots to repeat as Super Bowl Champions. They opened the season with the NFL Kickoff Game on September 6, beating the Atlanta Falcons 18–12. A vast majority of their Super Bowl-winning squad from the 2017 season was retained, although some notable losses included tight end Trey Burton (who contributed to the Philly Special in the Super Bowl), defensive end Vinny Curry, and cornerback Patrick Robinson. Franchise quarterback Carson Wentz, who had been injured late in the 2017 season, returned as a starter in Week 3, but a back injury would bump him down as the number 3 quarterback instead of being placed on injured reserve, and Nick Foles would start in his place for the remainder of the season.

The Eagles struggled through the first three months of the season to a 4–6 record, with inconsistent play and multiple injuries to players such as safety Rodney McLeod and running back Jay Ajayi. With a 21–17 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 7, the Eagles failed to improve or match their record from the previous season. The Eagles also made history in Week 11 with a 48-7 loss in New Orleans, the largest loss by a defending Super Bowl champion in league history. The Eagles proceeded to win 5 of their last 6 games, including two division wins over the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins to move to 9–7. A three game win streak to end the season which included wins over the Rams, Texans, and Redskins help the Eagles make the playoffs with a Vikings loss to the Bears. This is the first time the Eagles made the playoffs in back to back seasons since the 2008–10 seasons.

The Eagles played in their first NFL Kickoff Game and their first game at London's Wembley Stadium in franchise history.

In the playoffs, the Eagles upset the third-seeded Chicago Bears 16–15 in the Wild Card round to advance to the divisional round, where they lost 14–20 to the top-seeded New Orleans Saints, ending their hopes of defending their Super Bowl title.

2019 Philadelphia Eagles season

The 2019 Philadelphia Eagles season will be the franchise's 87th season in the National Football League and will be the fourth season under head coach Doug Pederson.

The Eagles will try to improve on their 9–7 record from 2018 where they made the playoffs, but lost in the NFC Divisional game against the New Orleans Saints. On top of making the playoffs last season, the Eagles will try to make the playoffs for the third consecutive season and win their 2nd Super Bowl title.
