Philadelphia Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman was on with Mike Florio on PFT Live on Tuesday and was asked about the Jonathan Gannon tampering charges.
“For me personally, extremely appreciative of JG and his contributions to our football team,” Roseman told Mike Florio, as per Crossing Broad.
“That was handled, as we discussed before, at the ownership level. I think the more we look in the past, the less focused we are on the future. So, I think for me that’s over with. Wish him well in Arizona. We’re moving on.”
The Arizona Cardinals admitted to contacting Gannon, who was the Eagles defensive coordinator for last season’s NFC Championship team, during an non-permissible period of time.
The two franchises swapped third-round picks in the 2023 NFL Draft and Arizona also received a 2024 fifth-rounder.
Roseman did not acquiesce, despite being pressed. “You’re talking points are on point,” he quipped back at the sarcastic Roseman.
“Do you not realize that answers like that make people like me think there’s a hell of a lot more to this than anyone is ever going to tell us and it was a much bigger deal than anyone led it on to be.”
Things got tense from there, as Roseman called Florio a “conspiracy theorist” who was exaggerating the situation.
