The Eagles have handed out their extensions, they've signed their rookies and even recently grabbed a free agent... And yet they're still among the league leaders in cap space.

PFF ranked the teams by cap space as of June 22nd and the Eagles came in 3rd with $18.02 million. That's more space than the rest of the NFC East combined. The Giants are near the bottom of the league with $3.11m, while the Cowboys and Redskins are near the middle wit $7.81m and $6.97m respectively.

Undoubtedly some of this money will be rolled into next season, but otherwise there's not a lot to do with it. There aren't significant signings to be made as far as free agents go. The team as it is now is pretty much the team that we'll see in camp and opening day.

There are some potential candidates for extensions. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is in the final year of his deal, but you would think the Eagles might want to see him play a bit before investing what would likely be pretty big money in him. Jeremy Maclin has two years left so it's probably a bit early for him, but who knows? Darryl Tapp is in the last year of his deal, but given the draft picks the team has made in recent years it doesn't seem likely they'll see the need to extend him.
