As the Eagles work to get under the salary cap for the 2021 NFL season, Adam Schefter provided some insight into what the actual cap number could be.

With the COVID-19 pandemic taking fans out of NFL stadiums, it was assumed that the salary cap would be around $175 million in 2021.

The Eagles were already some $70 million over the cap before rolling over $22 million and according to Field Yates, the extra $5 million should put Philadelphia at about $45 million over the cap after the Super Bowl.

The Eagles could save $1 million on the cap after trading Carson Wentz and they could also acquire space by trading or releasing Alshon Jeffery, Malik Jackson, DeSean Jackson, and others.
