Howie Roseman tried -- he didn't get the job done.
According to an ESPN report, Roseman tried for weeks to get cornerback Jalen Ramsey on the Eagles, but ultimately did not match the Los Angeles Rams' offer of two first-round picks and a fourth-round pick.
Roseman's decision to pass on Ramsey was not met well by Eagles fans, who are worried about the play of the secondary and thought Ramsey could have helped get the team out of their .500 funk they have been in since the beginning of last season. Roseman clearly saw a need for Ramsey, offering up two substanial picks, but was unwilling to go the extra mile to land the cornerback.
Whether Roseman made the right decision in passing on Ramsey remains to be seen, starting on Sunday night, when both Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby are set to return for the team's matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.
