Eagles restructure Lane Johnson's contract

Eagles restructure Lane Johnson's contract”

The Eagles have created salary cap space by restructuring tackle Lane Johnson's contract, an National Football League source said Tuesday. While they were roughly $10 million over, they continued to look for a solution to get under the cap by Wednesday.

Robinson was one of four former Florida State stars to get a Super Bowl ring this season - joined by defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, linebacker Nigel Bradham and fellow defensive back Ronald Darby, all of who have signed long term deals with the team. That is a massive move for the Eagles as they take a positive step towards getting under the cap. Prior to the 2016-17 season, the Eagles and Johnson agreed to a six-year, $63 million contract with over $35 million guaranteed. Yates reported that his salary for 2018 would be around $790k, while he collects a $4.92 million bonus. They'll get about $7.5 million in savings by reworking Johnson's deal. As of right now, they could free up some more extra space by cutting veteran tight end, Brent Celek. While he acknowledged two weeks ago that the Eagles would have to make some tough decisions this offseason and that some players might have to go, Roseman said he had no major concerns about the cap. Also, Vinny Curry has been shopped around for the past week or so.

The world champions have reportedly been in negations with soon to be free agent cornerback Patrick Robinson before the Monday deadline (after which it could be considered tampering to talk with players before the new league year begins).
