Last offseason, and into the regular season as well, the Philadelphia Eagles were clearly being careful not mess up their chances of landing compensatory picks for the losses of Nick Foles, Golden Tate, and Jordan Hicks in free agency.
As such, we tracked the Birds' compensatory pick movement all year. In 2020, the Eagles are highly unlikely to chase comp picks, for several reasons:
Still, by popular demand, we'll track the Eagles' comp picks, out of love.
• Halapoulivaati Vaitai: Vaitai is reportedly signing a five-year, $50 million deal with the Lions.
• Jordan Howard: Howard agreed to a two-year deal worth $9.75 million.
• Ronald Darby: Darby reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with Washington for $4 million.
• Kamu Grugier-Hill: Grugier-Hill is scheduled to count for $3 million against the cap this season with the Dolphins, per OverTheCap.
• Timmy Jernigan: Jernigan reportedly signed a deal worth "up to" $3.75 million with the Texans. The actual value of the deal is to be determined, which is what matters in terms of comp pick eligibility, not the fake "up to" numbers. For now though, we'll project him to count as a seventh-round com pick.
• Javon Hargrave: Hargrave will reportedly sign a three-year deal worth $39 million. We'll project that he'll count for a fourth-round pick in the comp pick formula.
• Malcolm Jenkins: In previous years, if a team didn't exercise an option on a player's contract, making him a free agent, that player would count toward the comp pick formula. That has since changed (see Nigel Bradham earlier this offseason), so Jenkins will not count.
• Darius Slay: The Eagles traded for him. Those guys don't count.
• Will Parks: OverTheCap.com is projecting Parks' $1,600,000 contract as non-qualifying toward the comp pick formula.
• Nelson Agholor: Agholor signed for a almost nothing with the Raiders.
• Jatavis Brown: Brown signed a minimum salary contract.
• Nickell Robey-Coleman: Robey-Coleman had his option declined by the Rams.
