As the official start of the NFL season approaches, teams are finding ways to lower their salary cap in order to be prepared for the 2021 season.

The Las Vegas Raiders are doing just that with a former Penn State Nittany Lions.

According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Raiders have restructured the contract of defensive end Carl Nassib. Per the report, the team is making $2.51 million of Nassib’s base salary into a signing bonus, which will create approximately $2 million in cap space.

Nassib joined the Raiders last season, after signing a 3-year, $25 million free agent deal, and went on to collect 28 tackles, 5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks and 1 interception.

Nassib was originally drafted in the 3rd round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns and after being released in his third year, signed on with Tampa Bay before joining the Raiders last season.
