Reports: Eagles GM Howie Roseman signs 3-year deal

Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman agreed to a three-year contract extension, multiple outlets reported Thursday.

Roseman, 46, was in the final year of his contract before signing the deal. He has held the role since 2010.

Roseman helped to build Philadelphia’s Super Bowl LII championship team, the first in franchise history.

The Eagles have won four NFC East titles and have been to the playoffs six times during his tenure.

Philadelphia holds 10 picks in the upcoming NFL Draft in April, including three in the first round.

Giants hire Bills’ personnel man Joe Schoen as GM

Buffalo Bills assistant general manager Joe Schoen was hired as GM of the New York Giants on Friday.

The Giants informed finalists Friday morning that a deal was close with Schoen, who is the first general manager for the franchise hired outside the organization since Ernie Accorsi in 1998.

“We are pleased and proud to name Joe as our general manager,” Giants president John Mara said. “Throughout our search, Joe impressed us with his ability to communicate a progressive and comprehensive vision for our team. His philosophy and collaborative approach to building a roster and coaching staff align with what we were looking for in a general manager.”

Schoen, the first to interview for the vacancy Jan. 12, won over Mara, chairman Steve Tisch and senior vice president of player personnel Chris Mara. Their second interview took place at team headquarters on Tuesday.

“Joe is the kind of exceptional leader we sought to oversee our football operations,” Tisch said. “We will do whatever it takes to support Joe’s vision and strategic plan for success. We are excited to begin this next chapter with Joe as our general manager.”

Schoen has 20 years of scouting and executive experience in the NFL, including the last five with the Bills. Before joining Buffalo in 2017 he spent most of the previous decade with the Miami Dolphins, including four years as the director of player personnel.

Schoen, 42, also worked with the Carolina Panthers (2001-07) under current Bills general manager Brandon Beane.

“It is an honor to accept the position of general manager of the New York Giants,” Schoen said. “I want to thank John Mara and Steve Tisch and their families for this tremendous opportunity. And obviously I am grateful to Brandon and the Bills for the experience I have had in Buffalo.

“Now, the work begins. My immediate focus is to hire a head coach, with who I will work in lockstep with to create a collaborative environment for our football operations. We will cast a wide net, it can be former head coaches, first-time head coaches but, more importantly, it has to be a person who possesses the ability to lead an organization and the ability to motivate and develop players.

“On the personnel side, we will begin to evaluate our roster and prepare for the draft and free agency. Our goal is to build a roster that will be competitive, have depth, and most importantly, win football games.”

Interviews for the head-coaching position are ongoing, with Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn recently added to the list.

The Giants fired head coach Joe Judge after two seasons, including a 4-13 finish in 2021. General manager Dave Gettleman retired after the season.

Texans officially name Nick Caserio as GM

Following two years without a general manager, the Houston Texans began reshaping their management structure in naming Nick Caserio as general manager on Thursday.

Caserio signed a six-year deal and faces immediate pressure to turn the franchise’s fortunes. The Texans went 4-12 last season and the assets to actively reload for the 2021 season are limited.

Fired head coach Bill O’Brien served as de facto general manager in 2019 and into 2020. During that time the Texans traded their 2021 first-round pick — which turned out to be the third overall selection — to the Miami Dolphins and sent All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals for running back David Johnson and a second-round pick.

Caserio served as the de facto GM of the New England Patriots, yielding final say to head coach Bill Belichick, while running the player personnel department.

“On behalf of my wife Kathleen and our entire family, I’m very humbled and honored by this opportunity to be the general manager of the Houston Texans,” Caserio said. “We would like to thank Janice, Cal and Hannah McNair for their belief in us that we can build something special that embraces the accomplishments of the past and accepts the challenges in front of us in our desire to be best.

“This moment would not be possible without the support and guidance of those that have invested in me personally and professionally. We are forever grateful to the Kraft Family, Bill Belichick as well as the entire New England Patriots organization that has blessed our family in ways we can never repay. Our goal now is to serve the Texans organization and the Houston community by putting together a team that we all can be proud of on and off the field.”

In 2019, the Texans operated without a general manager after being accused of tampering by the Patriots around their interest in Caserio. Houston promised not to engage Caserio in 2020.

But as 2021 began, Caserio was among the candidates the Texans sought to interview, including ESPN’s Louis Riddick, Seattle Seahawks vice president of player personnel Trent Kirchner and Baltimore Ravens director of football research Scott Cohen, among others.
