Nate Herbig was a key plug-in on the offensive line for the past few seasons, but the Eagles decided to part ways with him on Monday.
The big reasons why he was released was because of the addition of Cam Jurgensen and Herbig's cap hit. He was scheduled to cost $2.4 Million against the cap in 2022. There is no penalty to release him, so the Eagles gained $2.4 Million in cap space from the move.
As of now Isaac Seumalo is likely the favorite to win the RG spot on the offensive line, with Cam Jurgensen serving as a backup as RG and at center.
Jack Anderson, Sua Opeta, and Jack Driscoll have all proven to be serviceable at guard as well, and the Eagles are reportedly bringing in William Dunkle and Josh Sills as UDFAs who could be interesting guard options. So the Eagles figured they could get away with losing Herbig and gaining some cap space in the mean time.
