We now know how the Patriots created the cap space to sign the last of their rookie class on Thursday, Chris Mason of Masslive reports.

David Andrews restructured his contract, according to ESPN’s Field Yates, creating $2.1 million in new salary cap space. There wasn’t any new money in the deal. Instead, the center converted $3.15 million of his salary into a signing bonus.

It’s a win-win for the player and the team.

Andrews gets the new signing bonus guaranteed — money and security are never a bad thing, no matter the line of work — and the Patriots got the breathing room they needed with the cap. According to Yates, Andrews’ cap hit in 2022 is now a modest $4.275 million.
