The Philadelphia Eagles had 6 injured or absent players accounting for more than $20 million in salary-cap space.

That’s not even the worst of it, as the Eagles also have 48 players, some of who are still on the roster, accounting for over $62 million in dead salary cap space.

The Eagles will carry the largest dead money cap hit in NFL history this season after the team traded Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts.

Philadelphia’s salary cap situation was among the worst in the league after years of pushing back contracts, void years, and restructures.

Wentz’s isn’t the only former Eagle on the books for 2021 and we’ve presented all the dead money cap hits for Philadelphia this season per Over The Cap, and Spotrac.
