All the smart guys on radio and TV (here’s a shock: they’re not that smart) say that the Carson Wentz deal will tie him to the Eagles for the next two years, because moving him or cutting him is too cap-onerous.
“No contract is untradeable,” former Eagle exec Joe Banner says.
Jason Fitzgerald of Over The Cap has the best and most tolerable possibility for moving Wentz:
If the Eagles trade him after June 1, 2021, he’d count $19.27 million on the cap for Philly in 2021, then $24.5 million in dead money in 2022, when the cap should finally be rising again.
Especially with Hurts’ second-round rookie contract making the Wentz cap hits hurts less, it’s doable.
