Green Bay Packers guard Lane Taylor agreed to restructure the final year of his contract as a means to free up approximately $3 million in cap space, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Saturday.
Taylor will now receive $1.5 million and a $100,000 signing bonus after initially being scheduled to make approximately $4.55 million in 2020, according to OverTheCap.
ESPN's Rob Demovsky reported that Taylor has an opportunity to earn another $1.5 million with playing time bonuses.
Taylor played in just two games in 2019 before being placed on injured reserve with a biceps injury sustained in practice. The 30-year-old has made 78 appearances (49 starts) during his seven seasons with the Packers.
Taylor is expected to battle second-year lineman Elgton Jenkins for a starting position.
