Philadelphia Eagles Salary Cap & Contracts Overview

Last Updated: January 20, 2023
Who’s the highest-paid player on the Philadelphia roster? What are the cap implications? Here’s what you need to know about this season’s Eagles contracts.

The early returns on the Nick Sirianni era have been encouraging in Philly. Two playoff appearances in two years, most recently in the form of an NFC East division title and the conference’s No. 1 seed is nothing to sneeze at, and the ascension of phenom quarterback Jalen Hurts to an MVP level has one and all across Eastern PA feeling the Brotherly Love.

But of course, the signal-caller is eligible for a massive contract extension from the Eagles starting this offseason.

That means Howie Roseman’s front office stands to have an exciting spring and summer ahead of it as the roster construction jigsaw puzzle grows more complicated, but also more intriguing.

So, before the extension fireworks, what are the team’s biggest contracts for the 2022 season? Who carries the biggest contract in Philly here and now? Boardroom has all your Eagles salary cap particulars, as well as a look-ahead to the 2023 campaign.
