Report: Brandon Graham Working on Extension with Eagles
As the Eagles continue to rework and restructure contracts to get to the league mandated $182.5 salary cap, one player who might be getting a new deal is veteran defensive end Brandon Graham.
Per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the Eagles and Graham are working on an extension that will help the team inch closer to the salary cap.
Graham signed a three-year contract back in 2019 that would make him a free-agent in 2022.
Per the report, the extension will be a one-year deal that would add new money for Graham and allow the Eagles to lower Graham’s cap hit of over $17.9 million.
In 2020, the former first-round pick made the Pro Bowl for the first time, registering eight sacks and 16 quarterback hits in 16 games.
Also one other piece of Eagles restructuring news. Per the latest edition of The Inside the Birds podcast which dropped on Monday. the team is restructuring the deal of kicker Jake Elliott.
From Adam Caplan on Inside the Birds:
"One more I found out on Sunday: Jake Elliott, I'm told, they restructured his deal. I don't have the terms yet because it was more or less completed. The paperwork just had to be sent in but he's getting one as well.”
