Jets linebacker Avery Williamson will be making less money than originally expected this season.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that Williamson has agreed to a pay cut. He was set to make a base salary of $6 million this season, but will now make $3.5 million with $1 million in guaranteed money.
Williamson can make another $1.5 million in incentives. The move clears $3.75 million in cap space for the Jets.
Williamson is in the final year of the three-year contract he signed in 2018. He missed all of last season with a torn ACL and is set to play a prominent role this season with C.J. Mosley opting out of playing earlier this summer.
