Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.Click here to read the full articleTwo of the three teams with the highest dead cap charges in the NFL are in the NFC East.New York GiantsDead Money:$30.735 millionAdjusted Salary Cap: $178,049,071Dead Money Percentage: 17.26 percentBiggest Charges: Jason Pierre-Paul (DE) $15 million, Ereck Flowers (OT) $4,582,659, John Jerry (G) $2.55 million, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (CB) $2 million.The Giants have been active with their roster this week, changing the numbers from the article above:Dallas CowboysDead Money:$28.24 millionAdjusted Salary Cap: $185,900 ,556Dead Money Percentage: 15.19 percentBiggest Charges: Tony Romo (QB) $8.9 million, Dez Bryant (WR) $8 million, Cedric Thornton (DL) $2.5 million.Individual LeadersThere are also 10 players with at least $7.5 million in dead money this year. They are in the chart below.The Cowboys situation had a dramatic change this week (after I prepared this article) when the Cowboys traded a 1st round pick to the Raiders for wide receiver Amari Cooper.Cooper’s cap number for 2018 is negligible, at less than $412,000, but his 2019 cap charge is scheduled at $13.9m.One assumes that, having traded a first round pick, the Cowboys will want to sign Cooper to a multi-year extension.It will be interesting to see if they do, and how much they think he’s worth.Here's what ProFootballTalk had to say about Dallas and Cooper's contract situation:Philadelphia EaglesI wrote an article a few weeks ago about the 2019 cap space for each team in the NFC East.Here’s part of what I wrote about the Eagles:Jimmy Kempski has written his take on the Eagles cap situation:If the Eagles opted not to pick up Nick Foles’ option in 2019, or if they traded him, that would get them back under the cap immediately. That decision will seemingly be a no-brainer, particularly if the team views Nate Sudfeld as a legitimate No. 2 quarterback behind Carson Wentz. I believe they already do, and will even more so by 2019. Foles leaving would net almost $19 million in savings.It’s beginning to feel very likely that this is Jason Peters’ last year in the NFL. He won’t be easily replaced. While the Eagles won a Super Bowl with Halapoulivaati Vaitai at LT, the dropoff from “good Peters” to Big V was steep. The Eagles still have Vaitai, of course, as well as a developing Jordan Mailata behind the scenes, but they’d still probably have to look at adding to the offensive tackle pipeline. Whatever the case, that’s another $8 million. After being benched in favor of Isaac Seumalo, I can’t imagine the Eagles keeping an unhappy Stefen Wisniewski around in favor of a savings of $3,000,000.I fear that Chris Maragos’ knee injury could be a career-ender, or at a minimum, it could affect his ability to remain one of the best special teamers in the game. We’ll see. That would be another $2 million.
