Ravens Restructure Most of Safety Tony Jefferson’s Base Salary Into a Signing Bonus

The Ravens converted $5M of safety Tony Jefferson’s $6M base salary into a signing bonus, creating $3.33M in cap space for 2018.

They took $5 million of his $6 million and converted it to a signing bonus in a move that cleared $3.33 million in cap space for the year to come.

Jefferson’s salary for 2018 was already fully guaranteed, so the move simply moves up the time he gets his money. He’s signed for two more years with non-guaranteed base salaries of $8 and $7 million.

The NFLPA’s most recent update on the salary cap has the Ravens with just over $8.7 million in space for 2018.
