Add a little more salary cap space for the Miami Dolphins. According to reports from the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero and Adam Beasley, the Dolphins have completed the restructuring of tight end Jordan Cameron's contract.

The exact details of the new contract have not been disclosed, but the move was expected to lower Cameron's 2016 salary cap number, which was scheduled to be $9.5 million this season. Cameron joined the Dolphins last season, signing a two-year, $15 million contract. He caught 35 passes for 386 yards in his first season in South Florida.

The Dolphins started the day with somewhere in the neighborhood of $20 million in cap space. The move to keep Cameron will add to that space and keep Miami with their starting tight end heading into next season.
