The Falcons weren’t able to land Michael Bennett, but they have freed up some cap room for their next foray.

According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Falcons have restructured the contract of veteran guard Andy Levitre.

He was sent to enter the final year of his contract, and was carrying an $8.3 million cap number before the move.

Levitre has been a solid addition for the Falcons since they acquired him in a trade with the Titans in 2015. He wasn’t able to play in the playoffs this year after a torn triceps.
