Eagles’ offensive line is off the charts, according to new data
It’s no secret that the Philadelphia Eagles put extreme value into their offensive line. Philly continuously invests in drafting linemen alongside having the best offensive line coach in football with Jeff Stoutland.
The Athletic’s Ben Baldwin recently put together a chart that shows the best valued offensive line, combing a team’s projected pass protection metric and the total money per year they spend on the o-line.

The Eagles are off the charts in this metric, showing just how dominant this offensive line really is. Philadelphia spends more than $20 million more than any other team in the NFL while also posting the highest pass protection metric.
Here’s a look at some of the bigger contracts on the Eagles’ O-Line that take up most of that $80 million.
- Lane Johnson: $18 million APY
- Jordan Mailata: $16 million APY
- Jason Kelce: $14 million APY
- Isaac Seumalo: $5.3 million APY
- Andre Dillard $3.9 million APY
These numbers are based on the estimated adjusted average per year (APY) from their initial extensions, so they might not be the exact salary used by Baldwin.
The investment has done wonders for this team, as they can still have one of the best lines in football even when dealing with numerous injuries. Hopefully, the group can continue its stream of success in 2022 with the addition of Cam Jurgens and the return of Isaac Seumalo from injury.
