Eagles GM Howie Roseman talks about Asomugha, Jasckson, and Young
Are the Philadelphia Eagles the new “dream team”? Eagles GM Howie Roseman spoke with sports radio WIP in Philadelphia and answered questions about how the Eagles stayed under the radar to acquire Asomugha. The status of holdout receiver DeSean Jackson, and why sign Vince Young?
Howie Roseman, “I don’t think anyone can deny that Vince Young is a rare talent. This is a guy who is a two-time Pro Bowler, won ‘Comeback Player Of The Year’, had phenomenal success at the college level. He’s got unique abilities as a play-maker. It’s hard to find play-makers in this league especially at the quarterback position. I feel very fortunate to be the general manager of a team that has coaches who have outstanding success with quarterbacks. If you give Andy Reid, Marty Mornhinweg, Doug Pederson – you give those guys a talented guy like this – in this offense with the weapons we have and the offensive line we hope to develop here in the next few weeks with continuity I think that is exciting for us.”
