Bills restructure contract of CB Terrence McGee
Often injured Bills cornerback Terrence McGee has agreed to restructure the remaining two years on his original five year contract, all but guaranteeing that he will finish out his contract in Buffalo while saving the team cap space for the offseason.
McGee, a nine-year veteran who missed nine games last season and only played in nine during the 2010 season, agreed to a restructured deal that will provide a bit of relief under the salary cap for the team, while he will recieve more money in incentives depending on how much he plays in the next two years. McGee was set to make about $6.3 Million this upcoming season with a $500,000 roster bonus that he would recieve on March 17th.
If a deal hadn’t been struck, McGee likely would have been cut due to his injury issues and in an attempt for the Bills to save a big chunk of money. While passable on the field, injuries have forced him to miss significant time since being drafted in the fourth round of the 2003 draft by Buffalo. The Bills front office has said that they will not be releasing details on the new deal. Though McGee hasn’t played a full season since his rookie season in 2003, the Bills really have no other options at cornerback right now so a deal like this was probably inevitable.
