PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Eagles on Friday extended the contract of general manager Tom Heckert through 2011 and replaced vice president of player personnel Jason Licht.
The team named Howie Roseman, formerly its vice president of football administration, to Licht's old job.
Heckert was named general manager in 2006 after originally joining the team as the director of player personnel in 2001. He spent 10 years in the Miami Dolphins organization before coming to Philadelphia.
Roseman originally joined the Eagles as staff counsel focusing on the salary cap and became vice president of football administration in 2006.
"Howie has demonstrated a sharp eye for talent evaluation along with a knack for creative draft and free agent strategies," Reid said.
Notes: The Eagles announced they agreed to terms with safety Quintin Demps on a four-year contract on Friday.
Demps, a fourth round draft choice of the Eagles in 2008, had 17 career interceptions at UTEP, which was the most among all players in the 2008 draft class and ranks second in both Conference USA and school history. In 2007, Demps earned third team All-America and All-Conference USA honors as he set school and league records by posting 220 return yards on five interceptions, including two touchdowns.
