The Giants have restructured cornerback James Bradberry‘s contract for the second time this year.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Giants have converted just over $4 million of his base salary into a roster bonus in order to create just over $2.7 million in cap space this year. They also added a void year to Bradberry’s contract, which is up after next season, in order to further spread out the cap hit.

Earlier this year, the Giants converted $8 million of Bradberry’s salary into a bonus to create $4 million in cap room. That move left him with a cap number of $20.5 million next year and that number will go up a bit with the second move.

The Giants now have a little more than $3 million in cap space for the rest of this season and there will likely need to be some cap-related cuts come the offseason to balance the money they’ve kicked down the road with Bradberry and others this year.
