Howie Roseman continues to take care of the homegrown talent, this time inking upstart linebacker T.J. Edwards a one-year extension of his current deal.

A rookie free agent out of Wisconsin in 2019, Edwards would have become a restricted free agent after the season.

Edwards is the fifth Eagle to sign an extension since the start of this season. Here are takeaways and observations from the move.

Philly could have used a first, second, or right of refusal restricted free-agent tender on Edwards.

Edwards gets a million today and the Eagles keep him off the restricted tender market.

An undrafted free agent in 2019, Roseman rewarded the hard work.
