Report: Eagles restructure Zach Ertz's contract

Eagles NFL

In an effort to clear up some much-needed cap space, the Philadelphia Eagles have made a tweak to TE Zach Ertz's contract, by converting some of his 2017 salary into a guaranteed roster bonus, according to Field Yates of ESPN.

That move will give the Eagles an immediate savings, but will spread the cap hit into future years. From Ertz's perspective, the short explanation is that he simply gets a lump-sum cash advance on his pay. 

This move signals that the Eagles are not done spending in free agency just yet.
