Bold moves... Surprise signings... Heavy investments into areas where the Philadelphia Eagles don't often allocate a lot of resources... Philly's offseason has been one chock full of bold moves, adrenaline-inducing announcements, wise extensions, and, yes, retiring legends and the decision to move on from an aging but effective veteran who was coming off of two Pro Bowl nods. What else could you ask for?

Howie Roseman promised he would be aggressive during this stretch that separates the close of another Super Bowl from the moment when the Eagles report to training camp and begin the quest for what we hope is a season that ends with the raising of another Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Wise spending has been the topic of discusision. Time will tell if splurging on Saquon Barkley's addition qualifies, but until that question is answered, here's what we can say with confidence. No one manipulates and juggles the salary cap like Philly's rock star, Vice President and General Manager Howie Roseman.

Here's where the Eagles stand in terms of salary cap space with the coming NFL Draft on the horizon.

The most exciting part of Philly's roster haul has been witnessing Howie Roseman's ingenuity to blend massive deals and high-dollar extensions to place key players under a respectable financial umbrella. The Birds added everyone from Devin White and Saquon Barkley to Bryce Huff, DeVante Parker, and C.J. Gardner-Johnson. Quality extensions were also given.

Landon Dickerson, Jordan Mailata, DeVonta Smith, Brandon Graham, and Jake Elliott were all among the most notable. Let's just say that Howie is rolling and making things happen. Philly has a nice core of youngsters under contract to move forward with.

The NFL Draft nears. If Philly doesn't do anything else, they'll walk in with eight selections. That includes three of the first 53. Oh, and that isn't all. Philly can still be aggressive if they want to make more key additions post-selection meeting. That brings us back to Howie's ingenuity.

Before signing C.J. Uzomah, Philly ranked fourth among all NFL teams in available cap space. Spotrac reported at that time that they were $32 million under the cap. Currently, Spotrac, after calculating the top 51 contracts on Philly's ledger, ranks them sixth with an available cap space of $29.3 million, Only the New England Patriots ($54.7M), Washington Commanders ($43.7M), Tennesee Titans ($31.7M), Jacksonville Jaguars ($30.8M), and Los Angeles Chargers ($30.7M have more.

Over The Cap gives us a different calculation. Philly ranks seventh by their tally with $28.8 million available. They are again situated behind the Pats ($54.2M), Commanders ($43.4M), Jags ($31M), Titans ($30.8M), and Bolts ($30.6), but OTC ranks the Arizona Cardinals as Jonathan Gannon's squad has $29.3 million available.

Rest easy Birds fans. You're in good hands. You're a fan of a well-run organization that knows how to keep itself in the conversation as one of pro football's premier organizations.
