Eagles 'agree to terms' with rookie first-round pick Derek Barnett

Eagles NFL

The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Thursday that they "agreed to terms" with rookie first-round pick Derek Barnett. The phrasing the Eagles used would indicate that Barnett has not yet actually signed his contract.

All seven of the Eagles' draft picks other than Barnett have already signed their rookie deals. Before the draft even began, salary cap numbers were already in place for every draft slot, from pick No. 1 (which became Myles Garrett), to pick No. 253 (Chad Kelly). Here are the Eagles' rookie salary cap numbers for the next four years, using resources from OverTheCap.com:

Player2017201820192020
Derek Barnett$2,336,543$2,920,679$3,504,815$4,088,951

Elijah Qualls$496,803$586,803$676,803$766,803


The only real news here is that Barnett and the Eagles agreed to other small aspects of his rookie contract, like offsets and other minutiae we won't get into here.
