The Rams have reworked offensive tackle Rob Havenstein‘s contract to create salary cap space.

Field Yates of ESPN reports the team converted $2.34 million of Havenstein’s base salary into a signing bonus. That creates $1.56 million in additional salary cap room for 2020.

The Rams needed the space to accommodate the signings of Leonard Floyd and A'Shawn Robinson.

Havenstein signed a four-year, $32.5 million contract extension with the Rams before the 2018 season.

Havenstein, who turns 28 next month, has started 68 games in five seasons. The Rams made him a second-round choice in 2015.
