The Patriots have created some needed salary cap space as they head toward training camp.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the team has restructured center David Andrews‘ deal. They converted $3.15 million of Andrews’ compensation for the 2022 season into a signing bonus.

The move creates $2.1 million in cap space. The Patriots had less than $200,000 in cap space according to the NFLPA’s most recent salary cap report, so the shuffling creates money they’ll need if they want to make any moves during the season.

Andrews’ contract with the Patriots runs through the 2024 season. He started all 17 games for the Patriots last season and should do the same this year as long as he remains healthy.

  1. “much needed cap space”

    You mean to tell me they don’t have the most cap space of any NFL team in history? I’ve been misinformed.

  2. With all the talented skill players the Pats have it’s understandable why they are up against the cap.
    And no divas.
    Mediocrity > divas

    Another below average NE lineman. There’s allot of them.
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    If you truly think Center Dave Andrews is below average it explains your lack of knowledge regarding NFL football.

  4. For those crying cap hell after this season the Pat’s will be flush and they have already invested in a nice young core it does takes time after a 20 year 6sb wins double dynasty.

    They don’t get the cap. You are wasting your time.

    Pats rarely do restructures of any kind. Meanwhile, other teams in an actual cap hell, having key players flee, doing constant restructures are the signs of cap hell. They have comprehension issues so they mock the more intelligent people out of insecurity.

    Happens a lot in society today. Every failed loser in a basement is a genius and super successful people somehow are dumb.

    If NE was in cap hell , they wouldn’t spend on quality free agents last year

  6. Lmaoooo. There’s that word again “restructure”. You can’t make this stuff up. It’s too easy.

  7. The Pats CONSTANTLY do restructures. Every year. As far as cap hell goes, there are always things you can do. Trading IWynn would be my fave; if anyone would take him. Several other contracts could be restructured.

    As far as being flush next year goes, almost all teams are gonna have money next year. What the Pats sorely need, is the Red shirt/injured guys from the last couple years to show up and play(at least 4/5 of them), as well as a few big hits on this yrs draft. A lot to depend on.

    Umm, no they don’t. Brady was the only one at the end of his tenure in NE, for obvious reasons.

    Try to keep up, little Teddy.

    Also, a 10 mil year Tackle is a bargain. NE clearly has a top O Line in the entire league, assuming Strange slides right in.

  9. Some posters act like they know what they’re talking about. Others really do, and don’t need to call people names like 3rd graders.

    Mayo was restructured in 2015
    Amendola was in 2017
    Gronk was restructured in 2017
    Burkhead was restructured in 2020
    Trent Brown took a restructure to return to the Pats.
    Brady was restructured every 2 years.
    Andrews this year.

    There are more, but I’m just trying to show the difference between people that know, and people that spew.

    10 mil is not a lot for a LT that can play. Wynn is mediocre when on the field, and is frequently hurt. I would rather move TBrown over there, where he was great previously, and take your chances with Herron or Cajuste at RT.

    We’ll see if Strange can cut it. No lock. He went to a minor league school. This is the NFL.

    Keep up? You’re in my tailights.

    And over the keyboard also.

  11. Nothing wrong with being a fan. I am too. It’s the condescension and the balcony, as if he’s the only one that knows FB, and the only true fan. I think that case has been proven many times.

  12. I believe the “cap hell” comments are sarcasm.

    Because every time a story like this appears on a certain rival’s website – there are a handful of Pats fans who are generally pretty quick to cite “cap hell.” Even though it never is.
