Eagles restructure Alshon Jeffery’s contract

The Eagles have some short-term salary cap relief and Alshon Jeffery has some long-term job security.

Jeffery has restructured his contract just before the start of the season, the Eagles announced this afternoon.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the deal takes $11.75 million of salary for this year and converts it into a signing bonus, meaning it lowers Jeffery’s cap number for this season. The restructuring also means Jeffery has $11.5 million fully guaranteed for 2020. His old contract had nothing guaranteed in 2020.

The Eagles had to let some good players, including backup quarterback Nick Foles, linebacker Jordan Hicks and wide receiver Golden Tate, walk in free agency because they were tight against the salary cap. One player who won’t be going anywhere any time soon is Jeffery.

  1. So tight that they had $18M in cap space before this move. Maybe they just made the moves they wanted and didn’t let guys go because of cap space.

    Sorry but I have better things to do than keep up with 1696 players and thier current contract status!

    so you have the time to make two posts about a subject for which you haven’t the time to be informed…. clever that..

  5. Jeffery’s is the only wide out that is allowed by the NFL refs to push off every route he runs.
