Eagles will have $16 million in extra cap space this offseason
The Philadelphia Eagles will have some extra money to spend this upcoming offseason.
Following the conclusion of the regular season, the remaining salary cap space for each team was finalized, and the Eagles will have $16 million extra rolling over into 2022.
The NFL’s salary cap is different from other leagues, with leftover cap space from the previous season added on top of the team’s current cap space for the upcoming season.
Howie Roseman created this space by converting contracts into signing bonuses, opening space for the team that could be used next year. Roseman is often criticized, and rightfully so, but his manipulation of the cap has helped them to have the cap room to improve in free agency.
The 2022 salary cap is not yet finalized, but the Eagles are expected to have $14 million in space and $30 million in total following the 2021 rollover. The Eagles have the second-highest amount carrying over, with the Jacksonville Jaguars having $25 million extra to play with this offseason.
Philadelphia’s $30 million is going to be even more, depending on what moves they make this offseason. They can clear space by moving on from players like Brandon Brooks or if they once again convert their contracts into signing bonuses.
