Well, now we know how the Bucs plan on creating some cap room after re-signing Antonio Brown: Cameron Brate has agreed to restructure his contract.
The news was officially broken by ESPN’s Field Yates, coming just a few hours after the Brown news. This is the second time that Brate has re-worked his contract in as many years.
The Bucs and TE Cameron Brate have agreed to a reworked deal that clears $4.69M in cap space.
Brate gets a $2.425M signing bonus and his salary is now $1.075M in 2021, with a team option for the final two years of his deal.
Tampa clears $$ to sign AB plus other moves as needed.

The Bucs are now close to $3 million under the salary cap. They need around $2.8 million to sign the draft class.
