The Eagles went into the start of free agency with around $44 million in cap space, and over the last week, that number has changed considerably.
Here is a breakdown of where the Eagles seem to stand in terms of available salary cap space after a flurry of moves:
The cap hits:
The cap hit in 2020 is small, but as you can see, it raises significantly in 2021.
The Hargrave deal costs the Eagles $3.4 million in cap space for 2020, bringing them down to around $40 million.
Other potential cap-saving moves the team could make:
Ideally the Eagles would able to trade him. If they can find a taker for Jeffery the Eagles would only lose around $1 million in salary cap space. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Eagles package a pick with Jeffery to convince another team to take on his contract.
The bottom line, however, is that the Eagles’ ability to cut Jeffery is slowly slipping away the more moves they make.
