Philadelphia Eagles Salary Cap

Eagles Current Player Contract Breakdowns

Philadelphia Eagles general manager, Howie Roseman, has redeemed himself. After pulling off massive offseason contacts and trades, there have been little, if any, complaints among fans.

This season Roseman was named Executive of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America. It marked his second win — the first one was in 2017. As an “expert” in the field, Roseman is known for extending big-money contracts at a lower salary cap hit by pushing money into future years when the cap is expected to be higher.

After finishing the 2022 season 16-4, just short of the Lombardi Trophy, the Eagles are ready to run it back in 2023. And in order to do that, Roseman must maintain the roster, making his contract work that much more important.

This year, the league’s salary cap stands at $224.8 million. With an additional $5.4 million rolling over from the 2022 season, the Eagles’ adjusted salary cap is $230.2 million. Currently, Philadelphia has 67 players under contract, leaving $5.7 million in cap space, according to OverTheCap.
