The Buffalo Bills needed to create some extra cap space after trading offensive lineman Cody Ford to the Arizona Cardinals earlier this week, and they did that Thursday by restructuring left tackle Dion Dawkins’ contract.
According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Buffalo converted most of Dawkins’ salary into a signing bonus to clear over $5.6 million in cap space.
Dawkins, 28, was drafted by the Bills in the 2017 NFL Draft. He was in the final year of his four-year deal in 2020 when he signed a four-year, $60 million extension.
Dawkins appeared in all 16 regular season games last season.
