Doing any and everything to get cap-compliant.

ESPN’s Field Yates reported that the San Francisco 49ers restructured tight end George Kittle’s contract. That will create roughly $10 million in cap space for 2024. It pushes Kittle’s cap hits down the road but allows the team to get cap-compliant immediately.

That’s not the only contract the team reworked.

According to Over the Cap, Javon Hargrave also restructured his contract, which created about $6 million in cap space. This wasn’t expected since the team just signed Hargrave to a deal. Hargrave’s contract is a bit easier to restructure since there were still five years of proration built into it, thanks to an option bonus that takes place in 2024.

There’s $16 million in additional cap space to help the team keep adding players and stay under the salary cap.
