PHILADELPHIA (AP) -The Philadelphia Eagles extended the contract of general manager Tom Heckert through 2011 on Friday and replaced vice president of player personnel Jason Licht.
Howie Roseman, formerly its vice president of football administration, will replace Licht, the team said.
Heckert was named general manager in 2006 after originally joining the team as the director of player personnel in 2001. He spent 10 years in the Miami Dolphins organization before coming to Philadelphia.
``Tom's leadership and work ethic has continued to impress me over the years,'' said Eagles coach Andy Reid, who also serves as the head of football operations.
Eagles spokesman Derek Boyko said the team had no comment on Licht's departure.
