If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, player salaries tend to come up a lot.
It doesn’t matter if it’s the NFL preseason, the following offseason, a playoff game in January, or a weekend in the middle of July. It’s never out of season to talk about the Philadelphia Eagles or whatever they may have going on contractually. Two things are certain when we talk about money and the “Birds” especially ever since Howie Roseman’s been in charge of divvying out the finances.
One, the “Birds” are going to be walking a thin line between being just under the league-mandated salary cap and exceeding it. Second, good old Howie Roseman, Philly’s vice president and general manager, is going to find a way to work things out.
So what if Alshon Jeffery is making a small fortune, and we don’t know if he’ll play? Howie will figure it out. Who cares that the “Birds” are scheduled to be over $50 million above the NFL’s allotted cap number in 2021? Howie will figure that out too. he always does.
Here are four Eagles who may start to feel a little taken advantage of after some nice efforts in 2020. Don’t blame them for those inflated salary numbers.
