Buccaneers Restructure WR Russell Gage’s Contract


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and wide receiver Russell Gage have reworked his contract to free up roughly $3 million in case space. As reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Via Evan Winter from AtoZ Sports from OverTheCap.com,

“Per Over The Cap, Gage now counts $9,166,666 against the cap instead of the initial $12,166,666 million. The Buccaneers are still a little more than $2.6 million over the salary cap, but that number doesn’t include the savings from the releases of Leonard Fournette and Cameron Brate. The Buccaneers stand to gain around $5.5 million in cap space, which puts them above the red line.”

Via Fox Sports’ Greg Auman,

“Bucs are now under the salary cap. Russell Gage’s new deal has him go from $10 million base to veteran minimum $1.08 million and $5.92 million signing bonus (for guaranteed $7 million). Also void years added lower his 2023 salary cap hit more.”
