Eagles create cap space by restructuring Fletcher Cox’s contract

Howie Roseman never stops making deals even if it’s with players who are already in Philly. The Eagles restructured Fletcher Cox’s contract over the weekend, per ESPN’s Field Yates:

On Saturday, the Eagles converted $13.925M of DT Fletcher Cox's base salary into a signing bonus, creating about $11.14M in cap space.

The Ravens did the same with $2.254M of CB Marlon Humphrey's base salary, creating about $1.8M in cap space.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) September 14, 2021

Freeing up $11.14 million in salary cap space doesn’t necessarily mean a corresponding move is coming.
