On Wednesday, US time, according to NFL Network reporters, the Packers and sharpshooter Kenny Clark (Kenny Clark) restructured their contracts and began to free up salary space.
Clark’s $7.2 million salary and $6.4 million roster bonus will be converted into signing bonuses. The Packers also added a two-year voidable year to the contract to share Clark’s cap space. The Packers use this to free up $10.8 million in cap space for next season.
Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said they also plan to restructure contracts with more players at a later date.
The Packers had $42.7 million more cap space than they expected for the 2022 season before the contract restructuring with Clark. Combined with Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver Davante Adams both having high-paying contracts to consider, the Packers have to clear their cap space as soon as possible.
