Broncos kicker Brandon McManus broke some news on Friday.

McManus took to Twitter to announce that his contract for the coming season has been tweaked. A $2.925 million roster bonus has been converted into a signing bonus with the cap hit spread out over the final three years of the deal.

The move creates around $2.2 million in cap space for the Broncos this season.

That space could come in handy if the Broncos are going to make a push for cornerback Kyle Fuller. The team may free up more cap space by finalizing a long-term deal with safety Justin Simmons as it would take the franchise tag off the table, but that deal needs to be completed before the cap impact is known.
