Lions Restructure Kyle Vanden Bosch's Contract To Get Under Salary Cap

The Detroit Lions are no longer over the NFL salary cap. Earlier this week, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Lions were around $700,000 over the salary cap and needed to get under by Wednesday. On Tuesday, they got under and then some by restructuring defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch's contract. From Schefter:

By restructuring Vanden Bosch's deal, the Lions not only freed up enough money to get under the cap, but it sounds like they created a couple million dollars in cap room as well. That could come in handy later in the season should moves need to be made.

Back in March, the Lions restructured the deals of quarterback Matthew Stafford, wide receiver Nate Burleson and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to free up cap space, so this is nothing new for the team.
