Howard "Howie" Roseman (born June 23, 1975[1][2]) is the general manager for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League. At 39 years old, Roseman is the youngest general manager in the NFL.[3]

Early years[edit]

Roseman was born in Brooklyn, New York on June 23, 1975. He grew up in Marlboro Township, New Jersey, and later graduated Marlboro High School.[4] 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.[5]

Roseman began sending letters to all 32 NFL teams while he was still in high school in Marlboro, New Jersey in Monmouth County. 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. After an interview, Tannenbaum brought Roseman on as a player personnel intern in 1999.

Philadelphia Eagles (2000-Present)[edit]

After another relentless 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.[6] Howie loves to host radio shows taking credit for all the team's success and disappearing during times of crisis. See : DeSean Jackson. 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.[7]

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. “He’s one of the brightest young guys in the league,” Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie said of Roseman. “I’m very excited about what he brings to the table.” [8] 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, he oversees 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. [9] 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.[10]

Personal Life[edit]

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.[11]
