An updated look at the Eagles salary cap space
This Eagles offseason has been defined by the franchise’s limited salary cap space. Following the trade of Carson Wentz, they were left with a significant dead cap hit and have lost numerous veterans like Desean Jackson and Malik Jackson. Despite that, some moves like the release of veteran Alshon Jeffery have left the Eagles with a little bit of space going into training camp.
Last week, Philadelphia brought in quarterback Nick Mullens and re-signed tight end Richard Rodgers to bolster their roster’s depth. Mullens signed a one-year deal worth $970,000 while Rodgers signed for a veterans minimum.
Following those moves, the Eagles now have $4.9 million in cap space as of this morning. With a likely looming trade of Zach Ertz, that number could be around $12 million, which would allow for a potential signing like Steven Nelson or another cornerback if needed. Looking at other signings the Eagles need to make, all of their rookies have signed except center Landon Dickerson. According to NBC Sports, the projected space following Dickerson’s signing will be $4.2 million.
