ESPN’s Adam Schefter announced on Friday that Tom Brady had restructured his contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. According to Schefter, the move frees up a whopping $9 million in cap space for the Bucs who are just one year removed from winning the Super Bowl.
It’s a very interesting time for the restructuring to occur. We are less than a week out from the NFL Draft and the Buccaneers are still trying to figure out how to bring back free agents Rob Gronkowski, Ndamukong Suh, and Jason Pierre-Paul.
Prior to Tom Brady restructuring his contract with the Buccaneers, the team had just $3,954,933 in available cap space. Adam Schefter reports this move created over $9 million in cap space which puts the Buccaneers at over $13 million in usable cap space, a huge boost for the team.

Kyle Trask truly has one of the best jobs in the NFL. He gets paid to learn from Tom Brady, exercise, and do literally nothing of importance. Where did I go wrong in life that I couldn’t land a job like that?
how much help does Kyle Trask need!

The Buffalo Bills are currently the Super Bowl favorites followed by Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. A LOT can and will change between now and the start of the NFL season but this restructuring is excellent news for Bucs fans.
