Pederson & Roseman sign Eagles extensions

August 6 2018 12:02 AM

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson and general manager Howie Roseman have each signed contract extensions through to 2023.

Pederson guided the Eagles to their first Super Bowl title last season in just his second year in charge despite losing star quarterback Carson Wentz to injury, backup Nick Foles leading Philadelphia to a thrilling 41-33 win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

Roseman played an instrumental role in that triumph, assembling arguably the best roster in the NFL through his shrewd usage of the free agent market.

His 2017 additions, such as those of Foles, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery and defensive end Chris Long, as well as a mid-season trade for running back Jay Ajayi saw Roseman named Executive of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America.

"We are thrilled to solidify continuity in our organisation's leadership with the extensions of Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman, whose collaborative partnership helped deliver our city its first Super Bowl Championship," said chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie.

"Doug and Howie are committed to the success of our franchise by ensuring that we remain competitive, both in the short and long term. That unified vision for the future of our team is what gives us the best chance to win moving forward."

The Eagles start the defence of their title on September 6 against the Atlanta Falcons, who they beat in the playoffs en route to their maiden Lombardi Trophy.
