Pair of unsigned veterans could hold key to Eagles' salary cap

In terms of the Philadelphia Eagles' wage cap, re-signing a pair of experienced veterans might keep the team out of the red in 2024.

Brandon Graham and Jason Kelce have spent 27 years and 388 games with Philadelphia. 

According to Spotrac, they've made more than $175 million with the team. Both are unsigned for 2024, but that does not mean they are completely out of the picture.

The Eagles currently have $20.8 million in salary cap space for next season, which is somewhat higher than the league average

plus $4 million in dead cap money. That number will undoubtedly increase if the team acquires new players, particularly if Graham and Kelce do not re-sign with the team.

Graham has previously stated that he hopes to return, and given his dead cap number, the team should hope he does.

 If not, he will cost Philadelphia $13.2 million in dead cap money. The soon-to-be 36-year-old had a $10 million cap charge last year, so expect the Eagles to bring him back at a considerably lower figure.

Kelce is slightly more complicated. Unlike Graham, the 36-year-old center is still performing at an elite level. Most people expected he would retire at the end of the year, but new reports (and his brother) indicate otherwise.
