Eagles extend Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman

Fresh off of a season that saw the Eagles win their first Super Bowl in franchise history, the team has given head coach Doug Pederson and VP of football operations Howie Roseman extensions on their contracts that will run through the 2022 season.

This was a no-brainer for the team as Roseman has put together arguably the best roster in the league that was able to win a Super Bowl even after the injury to Carson Wentz and Pederson was able to draw up an offense to make them pretty much not even miss a beat in the postseason without Wentz and with Nick Foles in the starting lineup. Also, winning a Super Bowl in his second season was a pretty big deal.

The Eagles have usually been a pretty stable franchise and extending the contracts of Roseman and Pederson will keep continuity in Philadelphia going forward.

Bills trade for Corey Coleman

In two seasons since being made a first-round pick by the Browns, wide receiver Corey Coleman has been pretty disappointing, racking up only 718 yards and 5 touchdowns in two seasons.

That production, paired with the return of Josh Gordon and the acquisition of Jarvis Landry, made Coleman pretty expendable, so the Browns have dealt him to the Bills for a seventh-round pick.

In Coleman’s defense, he hasn’t exactly had the best quarterbacks throwing him the ball in his NFL career so far, but going to Buffalo probably won’t change that too much.

Maybe a change of scenery away from Cleveland will do Coleman some good, but I wouldn’t count on it with the quarterbacks he’ll have throwing him the ball
