The Eagles must extend Isaac Seumalo.

Gosh, you guys have a great memory. If you’re thinking to yourselves that we mentioned Isaac Seumalo as someone the Eagles could consider trading to clear even more cap room, you’re right.

There are always two sides to every story though, and while there’s nothing wrong with asking if it’s wide for the Birds to consider moving on and saving themselves the $7.6 million he’d be due in 2022 (he counts as 5.8 million in dead money), there’s no denying the fact that this team’s offensive line is, without question, better with him than they are without him. If you’ll remember, he was a big part of this team’s O-line winning the Built Ford Tough Offensive Line of the Year Award on the eve of Super Bowl LII.

Seumalo is signed through the 2022 season, and this team has proven that they can win without him, but this is one of the better players on this team’s offensive roster. Again, he’s the best left guard that no one talks about when he’s healthy.

This team isn’t in a position where they can ship off their best players, and Seumalo definitely falls into that category, It’s time for Howie Roseman to get on the line with Isaac’s agent. It’s time to begin discussing whether or not an extension can be drawn up. Sure, he missed most of the 2021-2022 NFL season with an injury, but overall, he’s proven to be fairly sturdy.
