Default Eagles Cap (maybe sticky this)

https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/philadel...les/cash/2019/


Nick Foles - $20
Tim Jernigan - $13
Peters - $10
McLeod - $9

Are the ones that jump out at me and that is $52 million roughly you could save.

They are $14 million over cap right now.

Chris Long -$5 million... he wonít be back IMO

So if you liquidated all that you go from $14 million over to $43 million under which is enough to get Jernigan and Graham back if you want them. Plus Hicks. Plus Darby. And then you nail the draft.

I don't think they are 14 mills over the cap. I don't really trust those sites that much. For instance, OTC has the Eagles cap hit for Jernigan at 7 mill and only saving 5 if they cut him. However I remember reading all of the guarantees are gone and we recoup the entire 13 mills if they cut him.

Also have to remember they have about 8 million to roll over which I think get them under the cap and that is before the ones you noted above.

They also can convert Alshon's 12 mill guarantee into a signing bonus and lower his cap number by about 7 million.

In other words don't worry about the cap. We can go out and get whatever we want .

I was just going to post that taz. We'll just kick the can down the road some more until we hit the National Debt.

I agree Taz. Nobody really knows but these guys always have appeared to be close.

I read a recap of free agency so far. The writer said Howie does the job at a higher level than most.

Based on the moves so far I think we are about $10-$12 million under. Going to need money for Carson toot sweet.

Based on my calculations after the Vinny Curry signing I think the Eagles are 24 million under.

The interesting thing is aside from Carson and possibly Agholor I can't think of anyone else they many want to extend. I think they have extended everyone that they wanted. Maybe Big V on a lower deal.

The Eagles are certainly in a position to pounce on anything that comes their way right now. That is a good position to be in

It's just so hard to figure out what a player is worth these days. Who knows what Aggie wants? We were all surprised that he got the $9 million this season. I wonder what Jefferys is thinking now after he got the same thing?

No hurry on Wentz, I don't see him being a pain in the ass and I believe they have him under control for this year and next. I would like to see him get through a season before handing him a boat anchor of a contract

MM I hear you but Agholor is still working on his rookie contract based on where he was drafted. I think you are right that Alshon might be underpaid but comparing it to NA is tough because that was his 5th year option.
