The Philadelphia Eagles have been one of the more creative teams in the NFL in the era of the salary cap. They’re usually on the leading edge when it comes to studying contracts and setting trends.
One of their contract negotiators is on the move. Adam Katz has left the organization, according to Adam Caplan of FoxSports.com, choosing to further his education in law school. Katz was a salary cap analyst for the team.
Team president Joe Banner has long been credited with being ahead of the game when it comes to the salary cap. It’s expected that after an uncapped year that the cap will return in 2011 with a new collective bargaining agreement. Some have suggested it could be significantly lower than it was in 2009 – near $128 million. If so, that could create some real challenges for many franchises.
National Football Post columnist Andrew Brandt negotiated contracts for Eagles draft picks in 2009.
