Tommy Kelly Restructures Pats Contract

Patriots defensive lineman Tommy Kelly has restructured the final year of his contract to reduce the team’s cap hit for 2014, reports Field Yates of

Kelly’s deal had originally featured a $2.656MM cap number for 2014, but that has been reduced to about $1.85MM in the restructure, according to Yates. Kelly can still earn approximately the same total salary if the contract maxes, but more of it is tied up in per-game roster bonuses and playing time incentives.

Unlike Kelly, it doesn’t appear fellow lineman Vince Wilfork will be reworking his deal. He reportedly asked the Pats for his release earlier today.
