In order to get under the cap before next week, the Miami Dolphins did some more contract restructuring on two of their most valuable players. The first announced restructure was with left tackle, Terron Armstead. After moving some numbers around with Armstead, the team will create $11.876 million in salary cap space. Tyreek Hill’s contract was also restructured to save the team $18 million against the salary cap. The team also restructured edge rusher Bradley Chubb’s contract to save $14.66 million against the cap. With all these contract restructures, perhaps the team will look into making a big move when free agency begins next week.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
