49ers Restructure DL Ray McDonald’s Contract, Free Up More Cap Space

 

Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports that the 49ers have restructured the contract of DE Ray McDonald and in turn freed up some additional cap space.

  • Pelissero specifically mentions that this isn’t a contract extension.

San Francisco had close to $9.5 million in available cap space as of today, according the NFL Players Association.

The fact that the 49ers continue to free up additional cap space could be an indication that a new contract could be coming for some of their players. Michael Crabtree is entering the final year of his rookie contract and G Alex Boone is currently holding out for a new deal.

McDonald, 29, was entering the fourth year of his five-year, $20 million contract that included $7 million guaranteed. He was set to make $3.5 million for the 2014 season and another $4.1 million in 2015.

Last year, McDonald appeared in 14 games and recorded 37 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and a pass defensed. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 22 defensive end in a 3-4 system last season.
