[News] Taking A Look At Eagles' Contract Picture

38 posts in this topic

Extending the contract of Jason Peters through 2019 accomplishes many things for the Eagles – notably satisfying Peters’ desire to finish his career here, keeping a core player under contract for three seasons, and, while the details of Peters’ contract aren’t public, likely helping the Eagles’ salary cap picture for this season as, historically, these kinds of deal do ...

Have to figure Peter's signing on for another year was probably a way to bring down the cap number next year and that same money is now split over two years. Since the cap will rise about another 20 Million for this year to two years from now we are able to get him the guarantee money he wants and deff makes sure he retires here.

 

Now please do not get hurt!

Well many on here already assumed he would since it's a bit less taxing on a player

Ok, what's done is done. I know there's a whole business aspect to it from both sides but something that gets overlooked a lot of times is a team's dedication to it's own. Peters has done a LOT for this organization and I'm glad the team helped assure him that he will retire an Eagle, which is what he deserves. Part of me likes to believe there's still dedication from both sides in the league nowadays. So i'll be happy about the deal for that reason.

Also, a "long" term positive (two years) if and when he isn't starting, he's one hell of a backup and mentor for his successor.

Then there's the obvious cap space saved so that we can resign Marcus Smith.

Wouldn't it be a RBs dream to run behind Lane at LT and JP at LG?

Sure many of us have talked about the possibility of JP moving to G and JP himself has stated he might have interest playing G down the road.....But it is completely different when the HC comes out and says it

Great PR move ... Lurie wasn't happy letting Dawkins play for another team over $$ that could have easily been paid to him without having any effects at salary cap space. Peters is the next guy on that level that players can now see ... "if I perform at this level, I will be taken care of and retire here" Great move in that regard. Hopefully it also helps the cap this year and next year. Otherwise, not good business strictly from the business side. If Howie made the deal work... that's great! Lane is paid, Peters is paid... however they want to line up now won't have effects on their pay, so they can go play now.

How about we save cap money and sign somebody else? I don;t want anymore lazy players in here."I worked out,it was just a decision I made" Well GREAT,how about the fans who expect you to show a little respect,I mean enough to show up voluntarily and prove to us you want to be part of this team

Since I cant post on the wed minicamp blog(5 hours and counting) I will say it's very nice to see/hear that "no name" guys are making plays.Seems even our 3rd stringers(or who will be) still have the talent to step in and play if asked to.YES I KNOW it's too early,still these are reports I dont re-call seeing alot of the past few years

Can't say enough good things about Roseman and Co. He's going to be the largely unsung hero of the Eagles' rise. What a turnaround from most of the last decade!

You are not talking about Peters, are you? If so, he has paid his dues and I see absolutely NO reason for him to come to the voluntary Mini camp. He knows this offense by heart and will be in shape. no sense in chancing an injury....

We have allot of 1 year deals. I imagine we will want to sign a few of them, so we will need the cap space to do so. I am hoping we do this instead of signing other players so we may be able to gain a compensatory pick or two. That would be welcome for a change...

Hopefully, performance on the field by our present one-year deals is such that we sign as many as we can without having to bring in many new players.  Speaks ooooodles for team chemistry.

I really enjoyed the JP miked up video. You don't often get to see the emotions of the "non skill" players on TV. In fact the only time I remember JP getting hot was when he went after that redskins jagoff for a cheap hit on Foles
