"Philadelphia Eagles -- Even in the unlikely scenario that quarterback Michael Vick plays the full season under the $16 million franchise tag, and backup quarterback Kolb ($5.35 million cap number) isn't traded, the Eagles have plenty of cap space to be aggressive in free agency. For Eagles fans that are wondering, Cardinals cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is signed through 2012 with base salaries of $950,000 in 2011 and $1,128,750 in 2012, though the 2012 figure could increase by up to $2.85 million through playing-time and performance-related incentives. "
You know, the fact that the Birds have a lot of cap room and as I understand it, MUST spend it makes me wonder the following things:
1) Are we waiting on seeing how things shake out before giving DJax his contract?
2) Will we be signing Vick a new deal, heavy in the current season and lighter in future ones?
3) Are we possibly thinking of signing a very high priced FA (NA) and that's what's holding up the 'Zona talks? This third point haunts me. We have to spend the money, there's no other strong needs, why the holy heck not???
