We’ve endured so much. Think about it. A long offseason followed a disappointing Philadelphia Eagles loss in Tampa versus the Buccaneers during last year’s Wild Card Round. That led us through a Pro Bowl we had hoped our guys wouldn’t have to participate in, the Senior Bowl, the pre-draft process, the 2023 NFL Draft, and every moment that led us to the preseason.
Eagles vice president/general manager Howie Roseman did his job all Spring and Summer, following one shrewd move with another, continuously crafting what would wind up being the best roster in the NFL.
14 regular-season wins followed, a team record, before Philly won twice during the postseason, setting up a match versus the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII. Regardless of what happens, the process begins again after football’s biggest game. Howie will be asked to wave his magic wand again thanks to limited cap space and about 20 impending free agents.
Here’s a list of every Eagles star on offense that’s expected to hit free agency in 2023.
League offices announced recently that the 2023 NFL salary cap is expected to be more than $220 million. Also, according to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Eagles saved $5.4 million in cap space this season which they’ll be allowed to roll over to next year’s campaign. Hey, every little bit helps, especially when you have to make decisions on 20 players with limited resources.
Here’s a look at the eight Birds on offense that will dip their toe in free agency’s pool if no extension is offered at season’s end.
- Jason Kelce, center
- Isaac Seumalo, guard
- Gardner Minshew, quarterback
- Boston Scott, running back
- Miles Sanders, running back
- Andre Dillard, tackle
- Tyree Jackson, tight end
- Zach Pascal, wide receiver
Here’s a list of every Eagles defensive star that’s expected to hit free agency in 2023 and the lone special-teamer header to free agency.
One week before the Super Bowl, Spotrac, with an estimation of all of Philly’s contracts places the Eagles’ cap space at $2.7 million. By estimating their top 51 deals believes they sit at $4.7 million in available space.
They enter the 2023 offseason with $28.3 million in dead money and can possibly add more money to the pot by extending guys like Javon Hargrave. Hopefully, that helps them keep many of the guys on this list.
- James Bradberry, cornerback
- Robert Quinn, defensive end
- Brandon Graham, defensive end
- Fletcher Cox, defensive tackle
- Javon Hargrave, defensive tackle
- Ndamukong Suh, defensive tackle
- Linval Joseph, defensive tackle
- T.J. Edwards, linebacker
- Kyzir White, linebacker
- Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, safety
- Marcus Epps, safety
- Rick Lovato, long snapper
It’s safe to state the Eagles’ roster will look different in 2023. Some of these guys will return. Some won’t, but Philly is set up nicely for the future with draft capital and the best general manager in all of pro football.
