Who Are The Highest Paid Players On the Philadelphia Eagles In 2022? 

The Eagles will enter the 2022 season paying their players nearly $200 million. This is just under this year’s NFL salary cap which is set at $208 million. Here are the ten highest-paid Philadelphia Eagles players for the 2022 season. 

Javon Hargrave 

  1. $17,802,000

Javon Hargrave is the highest paid Eagles player, but the 34th highest paid in the entire NFL. He is set to make $18 million in 2022 which is the final year of his three-year contract.

Hargrave is an important piece of the Eagles’ defensive line. He set his career-best in tackles and sacks last season which earned him Pro Bowl honors. The Eagles will have a tough decision if Hargrave is worth an extension beyond 2022

Lane Johnson

  1. $15,763,000

Lane Johnson will make over $15 million in 2022. He is one of the longest-tenured players on the Eagles and will not be a free agent until the 2026 season. Johnson was the fourth overall pick back in 2013 and has proved his worth. Johnson has three Pro Bowl selections and two All-Pro honors in his career. He is one of the most important pieces of the Eagles’ offensive line. 

Darius Slay

  1. $10,131,000

The Eagles restructured Slay’s contract so that his base salary is $1 million, but he will make just over $10 million when accounting for bonuses.

Slay will be on the second season of a three-year deal. Since he got to Philadelphia in 2020, he has helped solidify the cornerback position for the Eagles’ defense. Slay forms an elite cornerback duo with newly acquired James Bradberry. 

Brandon Graham

  1. $9,413,00

Brandon Graham is currently the longest-tenured Eagles player and will make nearly $10 million this upcoming season. He is on the final season of his three-year, $40 million contract. 

Graham went on injured reserve after the second game of the 2021 season with a torn Achilles. This season, he will be back to help solidify the Eagles’ defensive line as one of the NFL’s best. Graham has gotten better as his career has progressed and he finally got his first Pro Bowl selection in 2020. It will be great to see him back on the field.  

Jason Kelce

  1. $8,045,000

Jason Kelce signed a one-year contract right after the 2021 season worth about $8 million. He had previously considered retirement. It could be his final year in Philadelphia as the Eagles drafted his potential replacement in Cam Jurgens.

Kelce has anchored the offensive line since getting drafted in the sixth round back in 2011. He currently has an active streak of 122 consecutive starts. Kelce has five Pro Bowl selections and four All-Pro honors in his 12-year career. 

Isaac Seumalo

  1. $7,668,000

Isaac Seumalo will make nearly $8 million in 2022 which is the final season of his contract. He missed a majority of last season due to injury. Seumalo was drafted in the third round of the 2016 draft to play guard. He will likely be a starter this season but has not shown he can be a consistent and reliable player. 

A.J. Brown

  1. $5,632,800

The Eagles traded with the Titans on day one of the 2022 NFL Draft to bring in wide receiver A.J. Brown. He will play the 2022 season in the final year of his rookie contract. Brown also signed a four-year extension that is worth up to $100 million and will keep him with the Eagles through the 2026 season. 

A.J. Brown should be a major contributor to the Eagles’ offense going forward. He had multiple 1,000-yard receiving seasons and a Pro Bowl selection in his time in Tennesse. Brown has trained with Eagles QB Jalen Hurts in the past, so he should provide him a much-needed quality receiver across from DeVonta Smith. 

Derek Barnett

  1. $5,441,176

Derek Barnett signed a contract extension following the 2021 season to stay in Philadelphia for two more years. He has not quite met expectations of a first-round draft pick but provides the Eagles some much needed depth.

Barnett plays defensive end and will split snaps with Josh Sweat and Brandon Graham this upcoming season. 

Jake Elliott

  1. $5,086,000

The Eagles signed Jake Elliott from the Bengals practice squad to replace an injured Caleb Sturgis in week Two of their 2017 Super Bowl-winning season. He signed a five-year contract extension right before the 2020 season and will make just over $5 million this upcoming season. Elliott made his first-ever Pro Bowl in 2021 and should continue to be one of the NFL’s best kickers. 

Devonta Smith

  1. $4,577,589

Devonta Smith is going into the second year of his four-year rookie contract. He had a highly productive rookie season in 2021. Last year, Smith recorded over 900 receiving yards and five touchdowns which set the franchise record for a rookie receiver. Smith, along with the newly acquired receiver, A.J. Brown, form a dynamic receiving duo to give the Eagles’ offense a boost.
