Buffalo Bills Restructure Cornerback's Contract

The Buffalo Bills will have a little bit more cap room to work with as they approach the final stretch of the regular season. Sal Capaccio reports the team has restructured the contract of cornerback Tre'Davious White, freeing up $2.5 million in cap space.

The move should lift the Bills out of the league's basement as far as available funds go. They ranked last in cap space before the transaction.

The Bills were so close to the cap ceiling that the move may not even necessarily precede a meaningful transaction. The Bills have previously been linked to wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., but the cap space could just as easily be used to pay for crucial injury replacements and other more modest deals.

At 8-3, the Bills are entering potentially their most crucial stretch of the season. They face all three of their AFC East rivals over the next three weeks: they visit the  New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football before hosting the New York Jets in Week 14 and the Miami Dolphins in Week 15. With all four teams sporting winning records, the division remains completely up for grabs. The cap space and whatever move it facilitates could go a long way to putting the Bills over the top.
