The Jets have restructured the contract of defensive end Carl Lawson, per ESPN’s Field Yates.

Lawson’s new deal will now have a base value of $9 million including $8 million guaranteed. Previously, Lawson was due a non-guaranteed $15 million base salary. He can also earn up to $3 million in incentives.

The move saves about $12.7 million in cap space. According to Over the Cap, the Jets had about $6.4 million in cap discs before this move. The Jets also have contract talks upcoming with the restructuring of Aaron Rodgers and the extension for Quinnen Williams.

Lawson now gets some guaranteed money and gives the Jets some much-needed room to work with. He’ll return after recording 7.5 sacks last season, second to only Williams’ 12.
