Buffalo N.Y. (WGR 550) - Sources tell WGR Buffalo Bills beat reporter Sal Capaccio that the team is restructuring the contract of veteran cornerback Tre'Davious White.
According to the source, the move will save the Bills $2.5 million on the salary cap to allow for room if the team makes any elevation from the practice squad, or potentially adds anyone else in free agency.
While there is no indication this move could be linked in any way to the potential of signing free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr, Capaccio says it was solely to help the Bills create more cap space.
The Bills were at the bottom of the league in cap space with just $332,000 before the contract restructure.
White made his season debut on Thanksgiving against the Detroit Lions after missing most of the 2022 season due to a torn ACL suffered on Thanksgiving night in 2021 against the New Orleans Saints. He only played 16 snaps in their 28-25 win.
The Bills will next take on the New England Patriots on Thursday night at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
