Looking at the Eagles' contracts


With the 2009 season over, attention quickly turns to next season and speculation about roster changes.

Entering the postseason, the average age of the 60 players on the Eagles’ roster (including injured reserve) was 26.7.

The Birds have 76 percent of the roster signed through 2010 and beyond, including 22 players signed through 2012 and beyond.

Without guaranteed contracts in the NFL, there is no telling how long any player will be with the team -- especially in light of an uncapped year looming and the vagaries of signing bonuses -- but this gives some indication of where the team stands entering the offseason:
