While there are clouds gathering in Andy Reid's world, it appears that Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman is very safe in his role, even as the Eagles continue to disappoint. 

It's been discovered by Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, among others, that Roseman received a long-term contract extension from owner Jeffrey Lurie prior to the season. 

The whole thing went down when Joe Banner's time in Philly came to an end, according to McLane. And it means that, even if Lurie is extremely disappointed in some of the moves Roseman played a hand in, he likely won't be firing the young GM in the short-term future.
