Howie Roseman and Nick Sirianni Press Conference Recap

Philadelphia Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman and Head Coach Nick Sirianni met with the media for the first time this league year.

Following the failures of the 2020 season and the struggles, the Eagles have had since winning the Super Bowl. The main focus of the questioning was aimed at Roseman. Especially with the Eagles entering their most important offseason in a long time.

Before the press conference started, the Eagles General Manager spoke about the elephant in the room regarding the Carson Wentz trade.

Roseman spoke of the team's ambitions for the former franchise quarterback. Before sending his best wishes to the new face of the Indianapolis Colts.

Roseman said: "When we drafted Carson [Wentz] in 2016, we dreamed of the moment where he played like an MVP and won us a Championship.

"He did both of those things, and we're very appreciative of his contributions to us.

"For the trade, we felt like it was in the best interest for both parties, and we wish him the best in Indianapolis."

Roseman was asked about his previous press conference, which came in January. He stated how he could not imagine being without Wentz. The General Manager opened up about how the situation surrounding that changed.

He said: "A lot of honest conversations with him and his representative about where he was and feeling that maybe it was best to move on.

"We told him that it would have to work out best for both sides, and that's what the trade is with Indy. A win-win trade."

Roseman was later questioned on what was said between him and Wentz, but he kept the contents of those discussions hidden behind closed doors.

Roseman then took the chance to thank and praise veteran wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery.

Both receivers have been released from the team and played vital parts in the history of the franchise. The General Manager had kind words to say about both.

Roseman added: "We've also parted ways with some other big players. DeSean Jackson, one of the greatest receivers in the history of our team, and Alshon Jeffery. Without him, we would have never had a Super Bowl Championship."

Roseman was asked about whether he felt it was fair he was taking the brunt of the blame for the downwards spiral the team has been in since the Super Bowl.
