Who’s the Eagles’ highest-paid player? What are their biggest contracts on the books? Here’s what you need to know about Philly’s salary cap spending in 2023.
The Philadelphia Eagles have never flown higher than when Nick Foles — yes, Nick Foles! — was under center keying one of the more unlikely Super Bowl runs in recent memory. In the several years since, however, front office boss Howie Roseman has built a far surer thing.
These days, the Philly boys are one of the toughest outs in football week to week, and with a true franchise QB in Jalen Hurts conducting the offense in pleasing balance with a typically fearsome defense, there may be no more compelling contender in the NFC.
So, what are the biggest money moves that contributed to the Iggles’ state of play? Which levers did Roseman, Nick Sirianni, and big boss man Jeffrey Lurie have to pull to shape things in their favor?
That got us thinking about the team’s biggest salaries on the books for 2023, as well as their largest contracts overall.
