Found May 04, 2012 on Eagles Addict:
The Philadelphia Eagles have been assigned a 2012 rookie salary pool of $5.96 million, which includes a cap of $32.83 million, according to Ravens Insider reporter Aaron Wilson. The pool figure of $5.96 consists of the amount the Eagles are able to spend for their rookies’ base salaries.  In essence, the base salaries of all nine rookies cannot exceed that amount in 2012. The $32.83 million figure is the number the Eagles cannot exceed for the total cumulative amount of their nine rookie contracts.  In essence, once the Eagles sign all nine rookies, the total amount of all the deals (all of which will be four-year deals) cannot exceed $32.83 million. With the new rookie wage scale in full effect, we’re already starting to see rookie deals get completed as the Bears and Jets have already signed their second-round picks. Howie Roseman stated the other day that he expects to get all of the Eagles’ rookies signed this month, possibly even before the first rookie camp on May 12th. Photo:...
