According to Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) of partner USA Today Sports, the San Francisco 49ers cleared some cap space today by restructuring the contract of defensive lineman Ray McDonald. The restructure does not include an extension.
McDonald, a third round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, has spent his entire career with the 49ers. He has had 134 tackles, 13 sacks and three fumbles during that career.
Prior to the restructure, the 49ers had nearly $9.6 million in cap room. McDonald had counted $5.34 million against the cap for this season.
