Pederson has had a few one-year-wonders during his Philadelphia Eagles run.

Sometimes, in looking into the future, one can’t help but think about what’s already happened. If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, recent memories, more often than not, have led to more negative thoughts than positive ones. Not only that, it sometimes, feels like every member of this fan base is in a love-hate relationship with the vice president and general manager Howie Roseman.

Draft picks that haven’t worked out and crazy spending habits have been the subject of much discussion since good old Howie re-emerged from the equipment room.

The most frustrating aspect of Howie’s personality is he tends to waiver as if he has no plan. It’s like his decision-making process works like Snoop Dogg’s freestyle. It’s more of a mood thing.

One minute, Philly’s getting younger and healthier because they want guys that can run and can play. The next, they’re returning Corey Clement and Jason Peters. One minute, he doesn’t want to place band-aids on issues. The next he’s seemingly hanging out on the waiver wire and handing out one-year deals like they’re free candy.

You can argue that Howie’s biggest tool in the toolbox is the one-year deal. Often, it doesn’t work. Sometimes, it does. 2020 is upon us, and it marks the fifth year of the marriage that is Howie Roseman and head coach Doug Pederson. Here’s a look at some of the best one-year wonders that have come through the franchise in that time. Here’s a spoiler alert. Golden Tate didn’t earn a spot on the list.
