Rich Hofmann: Eagles new GM Roseman rose from the ranks | Philadelphia Daily News | 02/01/2010
THEY ATTRACT no publicity in a public profession. When you count up their hours and do the long division, many of them work for little more than minimum wage in an industry awash in billions.

Guys like the Eagles' new general manager, Howie Roseman, a decade ago.

"He should've been at least a five-time Pro Bowler," said Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb. "I'm happy for him. It's well-deserved." McNabb said that veteran stripes or not, Fletcher's new status will be treated as such as players mingle at an oceanside resort. "He's the oldest rookie here," McNabb said. "He'll get initiated at the pool bar. He's going to have to pay some tabs."

I think it's possible any or all three quarterbacks could be here with one year on their deal. It's possible one guy could get an extension."
Mallett blow could be last of its kind

He was an all-pro on the last Eagles team to win an NFL championship, in 1960, and was part of CBS's top NFL broadcast team during the 1970s along with his close friend Pat Summerall.
