The New England Patriots have restructured the contract of veteran defensive back Jason McCourty that will see his base salary dip and his 2018 cap number increase, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss.

McCourty’s 2018 base salary goes from $2.375 million to $1.6 million in exchange for up to $1 million in playing time incentives along with $400K in per-game bonuses. McCourty’s playing-time incentives are broken up into $200K increments and if he plays 40% of the defensive snaps for the Pats he will get an additional $200K.

There are other benchmarks for increased playing time beyond that.

McCourty’s cap number rises to $3.382M, according to the Boston Globe’s Ben Volin.

on

The Cincinnati Bengals have placed tight end Tyler Kroft on injured reserve, effectively ending his season, as he will be unable to return from a broken bone in his foot, as the team had hoped, according to ESPN’s Katherine Terrell.

In a corresponding move, the Bengals promoted linebacker Brandon Bell off of their practice squad to fill the roster spot made available when Kroft was sent to IR.

Kroft, who is in a contract year, is expected to be healthy in time for free agency in the spring.

Kroft hauled in 42 passes for 404 yards and seven touchdowns while filling in for Tyler Eifert in the 2017 season.
