Mario Addison contract restructure will save Buffalo Bills $2 million in 2021

When the Buffalo Bills restructured the contract of defensive end Mario Addison, we weren’t exactly sure what that would mean. Now Spotrac has updated their page with the information so we thought we would pass it along.

Instead of making $6.625 million in salary in 2021, that’s been slashed to $4.635 million. It is just a straight $1.99 million pay cut. His salary cap number goes down by that much, as well. No other changes were made to 2021 or 2022.

You can read all the previous contract details in our original article from 2020 here.
