WAY-OVER-THE-CAP EAGLES START TO DEAL THEIR WAY OUT!

By Tom Brennan

The Eagles current projected cap space is minus-$42,939,668.

In other words, they have none!

And they have lots of holes to fill on their roster so they need to cut salaries — ditching DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery’s big salaries was a start.

Carson Wentz was shipped off to Indianapolis and TE Zach Ertz seems likely to be the next guy traded away.

Before either of those moves, Philly quietly renegotiated the contracts of both Jeffery and Jackson. The players agreed to drop their 2021 salaries way down to $2 million, and team will release them both with a post-June 1 designation as soon as the 2021 league year begins on March 17.

When healthy, both players are still capable of producing, but the Eagles don’t really have a choice here and they clearly know that.
