Eagles Restructure Javon Hargrave’s Contract
With the salary cap set at $182.5 million for the upcoming 2021 league year, the Eagles continue to restructure deals in an furious attempt to be cap compliant by Wednesday's deadline.
On Tuesday, the team reworked the deal of left guard Isaac Seumalo, helping to create $2.408 million in cap space.
Today the team approached veteran defensive tackle Javon Hargrave, who signed with the team during the 2020 offseason, and kicked the can down the road with his contract to help open up $9.408 of cap space, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport,
According to the website Pro Football Focus, Hargrave, who started slow due to injury and learning a new scheme, ended up having a solid season.
With this restructure and Seumalo's on Tuesday, the Eagles are now approximately $16 million over the cap with Alshon Jeffery and Malik Jackson's post-June 1 number still to be factored in, which would bring the number closer to $12 million.
In 2020, Hargrave inked a three-year, $39 million deal with Philly and had 38 tackles, five for loss with 4.5 sacks in 2020 playing next to Fletcher Cox.
