In a few hours we'll know if Fletch shows. Nonetheless, I'm curious how a Cox deal will fit under the cap this year. Overthecap says we have $5.5 mil available. History tells us that the team likes to keep reserves for potential in-season signings. How does this work? Will they need to concurrently renegotiate other contracts to open up space?

Anyone else have a sharp pencil or spiffy spreadsheet?

Multiple sources indicate the Eagles have a sizable contract on the table. A safe bet would be around the $60 million guaranteed mark, and not far from Dareusí $16 million per season. They have a solid argument as to why thatís fair; France has a solid argument as to why itís not, and the dance goes on.

Both Roseman and France (who have a good relationship, weíre told) can be tough negotiators, but Roseman has a reputation for being generally fair when it comes to contracts while France is known for honoring his clientís wishes. Considering both sides want to get a deal done, it seems like all the ingredients are there.

Then thereís this: some feel Roseman has been pretty giving in his deals of late. You can argue that he got in front of the curve by locking in the players he did this offseason, but not everyone agrees that heís been the clear winner in those negotiations. Heís placed value in keeping his core players happy. And it doesnít get any more core than Cox.

Cox cap hit this year is $7.8M. It's one year so no dead money implications.

Suh's contract is an outlier IMO, and cox has not done as much as Suh had when he signed his deal, so if we go with the second highest DT contract, that would be M. Darius.

Darius was the 3rd pick of the 2011 draft and was subject to the new CBA rules for rookie deals. BUF had the right to do a 5th year option, but like the eagles did with L. Johnson, they signed him to an extension rather than use the 5th year option. If they give Cox exactly what Dareus got, his cap hit this year would be $7.8M also, ie a wash.

Cox does not give us a cap problem. Even if we go a tad higher than Dareus, over a six year deal, we're still good this year. BTW, Spotrac has us at cap space of 8.38M, so even if Cox cost us another $1M in cap year this year, we're OK for this year.

I like Cox, but still not sure about all that guaranteed money at that position.
