Isaac Seumalo is the latest Eagle to restructure contract to open cap space
With only a week until the start of free agency, the Eagles continue to open up cap space to get out of their over $40 million hole. According to reports, the Eagles have restructured guard Isaac Seumalo’s contract to open up $2.4 million in space.
Seumalo was initially due $9 million over the next two years before the restructure, and it isn’t known yet what his new deal will look like, but it should be known soon. The Eagles offensive line struggled during 2020, but Seumalo grew tremendously and should be an essential piece this upcoming season.
Almost the entire offensive line for the Eagles has changed their contract. Jason Kelce received an enormous payday worth up to $12 million. Lane Johnson is undergoing a restructure of his contract as well. There are reports the Eagles are shopping Brandon Brooks, but I would highly doubt that to be true.
Between the several restructures and cuts that the Eagles have done, they should be out of this salary cap hole soon enough. Hopefully, Seumalo’s restructured contract will allow him to continue to be a part of this dominant offensive line for several years to come.
