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