    So I imagine itíll be Graham, cox and kelce next

    That should leave the eagles roughly around 34 million over the cap after slay. Restructuring Graham and cox both should get them pretty close to cap compliant and I believe kelce as well

    They also need to figure out barnett who has a 10 million dollar cap hit with his 5th year option right now so extending him or letting him walk should place the eagles under the cap

    Howie just kicking the can to future years to fix the mess he made.

    How does this guy have a job still?

    Well 2 things

    First of all he has no choice. If you cut any of these players their dead cap hit almost makes it impossible to become cap compliant and weíll lose draft picks

    Second of all if the cap rises these dummy years and cap hits become almost inconsequential

    So while howie struggles with a lot of things this is both necessary and the right move

    Heís not signing them to Alshon extensions. Usually thereís either some added years, or changing base salary to bonuses to alter the cap hit of the contract

    What else can he do? They are still 25m otc with 12 days to get under.

    The only player they can really cut is Barnett and save 10mil, everyone else has too much dead money.

    I don't think Cox gets restructured. Graham and Kelce still lived up to their contracts. That's going to be hard to do for Cox as makes about double than the other two and is seemingly on the decline. If so it would make sense to release him in 2022, and a restructure would prevent that. I'd use 2021 to see if he can get back to his old self.

    You can certainly blame him for the team being in this mess, but restructuring Graham and Kelce are sensible moves to get out of it. I proposed this a short while ago. They are team leaders who still perform very well, so they are worth keeping through a rebuild.

    I was mores talking about the mess and him still having a job, not so much what he's doing with the restructures.

    I didn't intend to make it seem like restructuring wasn't sensible.

    The mess, the mess is on him.

    I could have been more clear, explained above.

    Heís 24 and has shown promise. An extension lowers his cap number. I donít see a reason to not sign him

    Barnett is too inconsistent and injured too much for my liking. Sweat is cheaper and better IMO.
