The Philadelphia Eagles have 14 unrestricted free agents and two restricted free agents going into the off-season. They’ll have some tough decisions to make as they’re well above the projected salary cap for 2021 and will need to make some moves and adjustments in order to drop below that cap within the next couple months. Newly-appointed head coach Nick Sirianni will have his work cut out for him as he jumps into the offseason with his new team.

Lost revenue due to COVID-19 will impact every team, but with so many free agents the likely drop in the league wide salary cap number could make things difficult. The 2020 number was around $198 million, while the 2021 number could drop to $176 to $180 million, according to Over The Cap, but is subject to change.

Franchise/Transition Tag possibilities

When the franchise/transition designation period begins on February 23rd, the Eagles currently don’t have any free agents that seem to be worthy of a franchise or transition tag this offseason. They haven’t been eager to use the tag in the past as they’ve only placed a franchise tag five times in their history, including Michael Vick in 2011 and most recently DeSean Jackson in 2012.
