    If they have to cut Long I'd like to take another look at him.

    It's easy to know what the CAP will go up to. The TV contracts are all done with the big three set till 2020.

    Long only is like $1.8MM in savings. They'll cut Curry by next Wednesday before they cut Long.

    Sure, if y'all cut him and he's willing to play for peanuts, I think Stephen Jones can make it work. I hear he's pulling out all of his pennies and having dear old Dad search the sofa cushions for some extra change.

    Well, makes sense.
    Dallas would be wise to sign a solid vet DE
    that is like a Chris Long.

    FWIW, there are now some rumors popping up that Long might not be back with Philly. So who knows.

    If DAL was in the same cap situation as PHI this place would burn to the ground

    The difference is that the Eagles know that the cap is just a suggestion and things can be rearranged to bring in good players...... it is better to go for it then to trust the Process

    They brought in Chip Kelly and blew things up and bought DMurray and BMaxwell and DJackson but they just as quickly broke it down and started over...... even after winning the SB they are being aggressive and not standing pat

    Damn I hate the FEagles

    I'm in agreement here. The Eagles are going for it for the next two years.
    What their outcome is - still to be seen.
    What their CAP situation ends up as does not look good three years down the road.

    Ended up restructuring Lane Johnson to free up $7.5M in cap space. Signed Haloti Ngata.

    i just read an article regarding cap space for the Eagles. In the article, they said that the Eagles will be very tight against the cap for the next two years as this year they thought the cap was going to rise to 179 mil and not 177 mil. Next year they have 11 players who account for 124 mil of cap space where one of them accounts for $22 million in Feltcher Cox. Eventually the money will be due and some of the players will have to be cut and they are very thin at some positions. The article said it will be interesting to see what transpires in the next few years especially when Wentz's contract is due.

    It appears that Jaylon's 1st year didn't count towards free agency because he was on NFI.

    I think today is the day all team have to be under the cap. They are on the rule of 51 in the offseason.

    Yes. But that is in 2020 on Wentz. After all the big money is given out.
    it will be interesting where the Eagles are after 2019 and going into 2020.
