“Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins has a $5 million roster bonus that comes due on March 13. Converting that into a signing bonus would clear $3.75 million in cap space.”
However, ESPN NFL Business Analyst Andrew Brandt is reporting that Jenkins will keep his $5 million roster bonus but his salary would be reduced to $820,000. With the reduction in salary, Jenkins is now signed through 2014, not 2015 as his original contract stated. Next year’s salary will also be adjusted.
