During his Monday zoom meeting, Pederson was asked by Associate Press reporter Rob Maaddi about the possibility of having more input in personnel matters going forward. Pederson’s answer was interesting. "That’s one of the things — you get into this business, especially as a head coach, and you do it because you love being around the players and you want to teach football.” "I want to be a part of the solution. I want to be a part of the evaluation process. I want to be a voice that’s heard, and I want to have that collaborative communication with [Executive Vice President/General Manager] Howie [Roseman] and his staff and be a part of that process.”"I don’t necessarily want to cross that line because it takes you away from doing your job as the head football coach. I like being on the football side of things as a former football player and obviously now a coach. That’s where my passion lies.” "But yet, I want to be part of the solution. I want to help evaluate and help bring guys in here that can help us win.” It was a normal Pederson answer and a shrewd one consider Roseman will be a part of the evaluation process a week from now. Pederson’s looking to survive and making a public play on Roseman’s front-office power isn’t conducive to retaining his job. Pederson is a football guy and his extra eye could be a positive for an Eagles front office that is staring at Justin Jefferson being one of the NFL’s elite wide receivers in year-1 with the Vikings. Jalen Reagor’s still looking for his breakout game. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
