A 2x NFL Executive of the Year and architect of the first Super Bowl championship in franchise history, Executive Vice President/General Manager Howie Roseman has been with the Philadelphia Eagles for more than 20 years. After working his way up through the Eagles’ football operations and scouting departments, Roseman has cemented himself as one of the most accomplished and respected front office executives in the league.
Roseman has greatly impacted decades of sustained success in Philadelphia. Since he was hired in 2000, the Eagles are tied for the second-most playoff victories (16) and third-most postseason berths (15) in the NFL, which includes a division-leading 10 NFC East crowns in that span. Philadelphia also ranks second in the league with seven conference title games since 2001.
One of just four general managers to receive multiple NFL Executive of the Year honors from the Pro Football Writers of America, Roseman has revitalized the Eagles’ football operations with a collaborative and progressive approach to roster building and player development. As a result, Philadelphia has earned playoff trips in five of the last six seasons, won three NFC East championships (2017, 2019, 2022) and made two Super Bowl appearances (LII and LVII), including a 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII. In 2022, Roseman became the second general manager to reach multiple Super Bowls with a different head coach and quarterback in each season, joining Ozzie Newsome with the Baltimore Ravens (2000, 2012).
In 2017, Roseman played a pivotal role in ensuring the success of the Eagles’ Super Bowl LII-winning team. Faced with season-ending injuries to key players, Roseman’s focused leadership and in-season roster management helped Philadelphia produce a 13-3 regular-season campaign while also securing the top seed in the NFC playoffs ahead of its championship run.
Roseman, who served as the Eagles’ Executive Vice President of Football Operations from 2016-2018 before adding the title of General Manager in 2019, is responsible for managing the organization’s personnel and scouting staffs. He also oversees the executives who specialize in all areas of football operations, including but not limited to sports medicine and performance, analytics, football administration, football technology, and player development. Under Roseman’s guidance, and in concert with the vision created by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Lurie, Philadelphia has become one of the NFL’s most admired and innovative operations.
Before he was elevated to Executive Vice President of Football Operations, Roseman served as the general manager from 2010-2014. At the time of his promotion, the 34-year-old Roseman became the youngest NFL executive to be named to the post in three decades. He directed a major overhaul of the roster in his first year, making it one of the youngest in the league. The revamped Eagles delivered NFC East titles in 2010 and 2013 and sent a conference-high nine players to the Pro Bowl following the 2014 season.
From 2008-2009, Roseman managed the college scouting staff, organized and ran draft meetings, and scouted the top college prospects around the country as the vice president of player personnel.
Roseman was named Philadelphia’s vice president of football administration (2006-2007) after spending three years as the team’s director of football administration (2003-2005). In that role, he evaluated players around the NFL and for the draft while representing the team 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, an NFL program created to develop leaders within the league.
After relentlessly pursuing jobs in NFL front offices, Roseman finally got his foot in the door as an intern with the Eagles, when the team was headquartered at Veterans Stadium. From 2000-2002, Roseman served as a salary cap staff counsel with Philadelphia.
Roseman serves on the Future of Football Advisory Committee, which is a panel of executives organized through the NFL’s Football Operations Innovation Forum that showcases and discusses various initiatives.
Roseman, the club’s nominee for the 2018 NFL Salute to Service Award, is very active in the Philadelphia community and contributes to a variety of initiatives that involve the military and children. He was named Honorary Commander for the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst for his continued efforts with the military. His charitable endeavors have also benefited the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, USA Football, Pop Warner, and Cop Wheels. In 2018, the Maxwell Football Club presented Roseman with the Steinberg-DeNicola Humanitarian Award, an annual honor that recognizes an NFL representative who is committed to doing good in their community. In addition, Roseman is a member of the Governing Body of the Global Sports Management Summit and YPO.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Roseman earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida before earning a J.D. degree from Fordham Law School. He and his family reside in suburban Philadelphia.Less
