“In June, when he first announced a "succession plan" with Roseman and new president Don Smolenski assuming most of Banner's responsibilities, Lurie said that Smolenski signed a multi-year deal. He would not elaborate on Roseman's contract, however, except to say that he had an existing deal.
It turns out that deal - Roseman had one or two years left - grew exponentially after the 37-year-old GM's first two years on the job.
With the Eagles a disappointing 3-5 this season and coach Andy Reid as close as ever to losing his job, Roseman's contract situation gives him seemingly more security beyond this season. If he returns he will likely play an important part in choosing Reid's successor should Lurie fire his long-time coach.
The financial numbers on Roseman's salary were not available.”
Honestly, when I first heard this, I got worked up but I really don’t think this is going to matter. If the Eagles season continues on this slippery slope, it is hard to imagine that Jeffrey Lurie keeps Roseman given the potential fan backlash but, as of right now, it sounds like he will be here for a while.
With the jury still out on the 2012 draft class (although they look pretty good so far), Roseman has failed miserably as a talent evaluator when looking at the 2010 and the 2011 draft classes. Roseman has showed a penchant for making a splash in the offseason bringing in the likes of CB Nnamdi Asomugha, WR Steve Smith, and RB Ronnie Brown. So far, however, these moves have not panned out.
