On Tuesday, the San Francisco 49ers created $9.5 million in salary cap space by restructuring the contract of linebacker Fred Warner. The deal remains a five-year one worth $95.225 million, and the player remains signed through the 2026 season.

However, much of Warner's 2023 base salary has been converted to a signing bonus, paying him that amount immediately but allowing the 49ers to spread the salary-cap impact of the amount throughout the length of the contract. In Warner's case, the impact of the signing bonus will go beyond 2026, as the 49ers added a void year in 2027.

Warner's 2023 salary cap number reduces from about $18.5 million to $9.049 million. OverTheCap.com currently lists the 49ers as $12,281,688 under the cap. The salary cap site provided the following breakdown of the remaining years of Warner's deal.

While he hopes to rejoin his teammates for Week 1 of the upcoming season, it's more realistic that he will start the season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. When asked how he is supporting Greenlaw in his recovery, Warner responded, "Just being there for him, really. Kind

Christian McCaffrey was eager to return to the San Francisco 49ers, but understandably, he wanted to ensure his financial future before doing so. The running back didn't have any guaranteed money left on the remaining two years of his deal.

With a new deal in place, the running back reported to the team this week for its mandatory minicamp. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that McCaffrey will likely be held out of any on-field
