For weeks, Roseman and his staff have been calling around the league, finding out which players they feel could help their team might be available — and for what price. 

Now, with the deadline just one day away, Roseman and his staff will have to decide if they want to make a move. If they do, they will be taking a few important things into consideration — their cap space this season, their cap space for next offseason, their draft picks and key players who are set to become free agents. 

Here is a look at where the Eagles tank heading into the final days before the trade deadline (Tuesday, October 30th at 4pm E.T.):

Cap space remaining: $10.2 million, 12th most in NFL 

Cap space for this offseason: Currently projected to be at $6.3 million over the salary cap, but that number will change dramatically, assuming they move on from quarterback Nick Foles, offensive tackle Jason Peters and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan. Moving on from all three would leave the Eagles with right around $26 million to spend. 

2019 NFL Draft picks: 

1st round pick

2nd round pick 

2nd round pick (Baltimore Ravens)

3rd round pick 

4th round pick

5th round pick (projected compensatory pick)

5th round pick

6th round pick

6th round pick (projected compensatory pick)

7th round pick
