Howie Roseman has his work cut out for him this offseason from a salary cap standpoint, but the Eagles’ salary cap woes aren’t the worst in the NFL.

The 2021 salary cap amount has yet to be officially decided as the NFL and the NFLPA work through the losses suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic that limited fans’ attendance at games.

The floor for the 2021 salary cap was set at $175 million, but it could land at around $195 million after it was $198 million in 2020 and was projected to be $210 million in 2021.

With the NFL adding a 17th regular-season game for all 32 clubs in 2021, the cap could rise even further.

ESPN’s Field Yates took a look at what NFL teams rolled over in cap room and the Eagles saved almost $23 million to add to the estimated $70 million that they’ll be over the cap when the new league year begins.

Even with the coaching search and Carson Wentz’s future in Philadelphia hanging over the organization, there will be looming roster decisions to be made to help the Eagles get back to some semblance of fiscal comfort.
