Howie Roseman, the Philadelphia Eagles’ executive vice president of football operations, continues to do positive things for the team. Today, the team has reportedly restructured the contract of offensive tackle Lane Johnson, reducing his base salary for the year to $790,000, and instead paying out the remainder of his $10,484,000 as a combination of a roster bonus and a restructure bonus. The move is expected to clear roughly $7.1 million in cap space for the cap space depleted team.
