PITTSFORD, N.Y. – A person familiar with the decision says Buffalo Bills receiver Brad Smith has restructured the final two years of his contract to have a better shot at making the roster.
The person said Monday the new deal provides the Bills additional salary-cap space and also better reflects Smith's production over his first two seasons in Buffalo. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the move, and Smith did not reveal the reason behind it.
The National Football Post first reported Smith had restructured his contract on Sunday.
Smith is a seven-year veteran, who also doubles as a kickoff returner and wildcat quarterback specialist. He signed a four-year, $15 million contract with the Bills in free agency in July 2011.
