Jack Conklin and the Cleveland Browns have agreed on a restructured contract. The move creates $4M in cap space for the Browns, and fully guarantees $8M for Conklin this season. (Field Yates on Twitter)
Conklin, who suffered a torn patellar tendon in November, had been scheduled to receive $12M in non-guaranteed salary next season. He now has $8M guaranteed, and the other $4M were converted to contract incentives. Conklin gets a higher salary floor as he returns from injury, and the Browns create about $4M in additional cap space.
