Report: Andrews restructures Patriots contract to create salary cap space


The New England Patriots needed more salary cap space to finish signing their 2022 rookie class, and they've found a way to create that room.

Starting center David Andrews has restructured his contract, per ESPN's Field Yates. The move opened up about $2.1 million in cap space.

According to Patriots salary cap expert Miguel Benzan, the team now has about $360,000 in cap space after signing rookies Cole Strange, Tyquan Thornton and Bailey Zappe, plus restructuring Andrews' deal.

The Patriots now have their entire 2022 draft class signed. 

The next notable date for the Patriots is July 26, when training camp begins at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.
