Eagles running back restructures contract
Not long after arriving in Philadelphia, running back Kerryon Johnson is undergoing a contract restructure. The Eagles and Johnson adjusted the final year of his rookie contract, initially worth $1.3 million down to the league minimum of $920,000. This move saves the Eagles just over $400,000 in cap space this upcoming season.
None of Kerryon’s contract is guaranteed, so there is no dead cap hit if he were to be let go, but he will likely be around for the 2021 season. The Eagles’ current running back depth chart includes Miles Sanders, Kenneth Gainwell, Jordan Howard, and Kerryon Johnson.
More cap space could be on the way following the move of veteran tight end Zach Ertz that looks to be inevitable. But right now, Philadelphia has just over $8.2 million in cap space and has been rumored to be pursuing Falcons wide receiver, Julio Jones.
