The Philadelphia Eagles' 2024 offseason has been highlighted by a number of big-name acquisitions, like Saquon Barkley and Bryce Huff. However, several shakeups involving key decision-makers preceded the roster improvements, with both of Nick Sirianni's coordinators being let go.

Now it turns out GM Howie Roseman is losing one of his key guys in the front office.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Jake Rosenberg is leaving Philadelphia "when his contract expires after the NFL draft next month." Rosenberg chalks the decision up to wanting to further his career, as McLane says the respected executive "hopes to stay in the NFL and work for a team in which he can pursue his goal of becoming a GM."

This is a big loss for Roseman and the Eagles as a whole. Rosenberg holds the title of vice president of football administration, serving as one of Roseman's closest advisors. McLane notes Rosenberg "played a vital role" in cap management and negotiations, while also helping in player signings/acquisitions.

While Roseman gets deserved praise as one of the NFL's top general managers, that success is a credit to the team he's put around him as well, and it's clear Rosenberg was someone who helped this organization tremendously.

Now Rosenberg wants to explore other opportunities for a larger role somewhere else, and no one should blame him.

At the very least, Rosenberg will be on board through the NFL Draft. The buzz is Philly still has a few moves up its sleeve, which Rosenberg is surely playing a part in.

There's also the Hasson Reddick trade saga, so Rosenberg can give the team a great parting gift by finding a resolution for the disgruntled pass-rusher.
