Howie Roseman was given 4-to-5 year extension when Joe Banner stepped down

Philly.com Sports: Following the Philadelphia Eagles fourth consecutive loss on Monday night, Philly.com's Jeff McLane reports general manager Howie Roseman received a contract extension of 4-5 years when former general manager Joe Banner stepped down from the position in June.

When Joe Banner stepped down as team president, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie extended general manager Howie Roseman's contract for an additional four to five years, a team source said.

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.
