The Falcons created $10.5 million in salary-cap space by restructuring the contracts of Matt Ryan, Allen Bailey and Jake Matthews, according to NFLPA documents. 

 
Ryan’s salary-cap number went from $24.1 million to $20.5 million for a $3.6 million cap saving.

 

Matthews’ salary-cap number went from $16.0 million to $10.5 million for a $5.5 million cap saving. 

 

Bailey, who got him some upfront money in the form of a $3.2 million bonus, had his cap number reduced from $5.9 million to $4.5 million for a saving of $1.4 million. 

 

The deals were restructured Saturday, according to the league’s transaction wire. 

 

The Falcons said they were not in “salary-cap ****,” but they needed to cut several players and complete the restructures to make room for all of their recent moves. 

 

With the Todd Gurley and Dante Fowler deals not on the books yet, the Falcons have $12.5 million under the salary cap.

 

They’ll need $6.4 million for the rookie class.

And we get more after the draft because Tru and Free are post June 1st cuts. But that will be for the draft class probably

I knew Tru was 6/1, but did they confirm Free was too? I hadn’t heard that and figured they were saving a slot for Carpenter or Brown

I dont think Freeman is a post June 1st guy. And only Carpenter would save any money this year as post june 1. Hed sabe 2.5m I think Brown would be like 5 grand for a post june 1st
