NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Cleveland Browns Scott R. Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles signed interior offensive linemen Jason Kelce and Isaac Seumalo to new deals in the past week but we haven’t seen their specific contract details. That is, until now.

JASON KELCE

Kelce’s new deal allowed the Eagles to create just over $4 million in cap space, as Field Yates first reported on Wednesday.

Kelce’s deal also increases his annual value from 12th overall at his position to 10th overall. That’s a pretty reasonable figure for a guy who is arguably the best center in the entire league.

Prior to this extension, Kelce had no guaranteed money remaining in his contract over the next two seasons. The team may have felt like offering him more security would stave off his potential retirement plans. If that’s the case, it worked.

ISAAC SEUMALO

I wrote this about Seumalo’s extension when the news broke on Monday:

The terms of the deal are yet to be disclosed, which could suggest it’s a bargain for the Eagles. Agents aren’t exactly in a rush to put out modest contract numbers.

As it turns out, Seumalo’s deal is very team-friendly.

But wait, there’s more:

So, Seumalo’s 2019 year remains unchanged. He’s still making peanuts (relatively speaking) as a starting player. He’s also locked in for 2020.

Should Seumalo struggle and not live up to expectations prior to next season, the Eagles can choose to chop off that 2022 year in his contract. The team could also easily get out of the 2021 year if it comes to that.

The Seumalo contract is a win-win for the Eagles. If he struggles, they can get out of it with ease. If he plays well, they’ll have a starting guard/center on a bargain contract.

Just another job well done by Howie Roseman and the Eagles’ front office.

...

For those wondering, the exact numbers on Brandon Graham’s new three-year, $40 million contract have yet to be announced. We do know that it’s worth $27 million guaranteed.
