It took more than a year, but the Philadelphia Eagles believe they've found their man to replace Ryan Grigson.
"Since Ryan Grigson left to become the general manager of the Colts, we've been looking for the right person to fill his spot and we are excited about what Tom can bring to the team," Roseman said, in a statement published on the Eagles' official website. "He's not only a talented evaluator, but also a good man and the type of person you want as a part of your team. Tom and I have had a great relationship over the years and I know he's excited to come home."
