As the Eagles navigate their salary cap situation Howie Roseman continues to find creative ways to free up money to stay active in free agency. 

According to Field Yates of ESPN, Roseman's newest move was to restructure Zach Ertz's contract and turn his scheduled earnings into a roster bonus:

The Eagles have already restructured Lane Johnson's contract to save $7.5 million and they cut Brent Celek to save another $4 million. 

With the signings of Corey Nelson and Nigel Bradham, and the pending signing of Haloti Ngata, the Eagles will be right up against the $177 million team limit. Expect more moves to come over the next couple of days.
