Dion Dawkins Contract

Buffalo Bills GM Brandon Beane delivered this week on his vow to restructure players’ contracts. According to NFL Network, the Bills were able to free up $5.6 million in salary cap space when left tackle Dion Dawkins agreed to restructure some of the money in his contract.

After dealing away guard Cody Ford on Monday, the Bills were $4.1 million under the NFL salary cap. The remaining three years of Dawkins’ contract extension through the 2024 season.

The Bills were able to spread out nearly $7 million over the duration of the contract by turning a significant portion of this year’s basic salary he was set to receive into bonus money paid immediately. Dawkins has a contract worth an annual average of $14.5 million.

With roughly $10 million in available cap space for the 2022 season, Buffalo can now afford to replace injured players as they arise. A contract extension can be signed in that space as well. Safety Jordan Poyer of the Buffalo Bills is entering the final year of his deal and would like a raise.

As a result of the adjustments, the Bills have around $10.1M in cap space ahead of the 2022 NFL season.

Dawkins extended his contract by four years in August of 2020. Buffalo has recently been linked to free agent wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr., mainly because of the presence of pass rusher Von Miller. Due to his ongoing rehabilitation from an ACL injury, the wide receiver is unlikely to be signed by an NFL team anytime soon.

Whatever the case may be, the Bills normally do not release salary cap space in an effort to make targeted changes just before the season begins.

Beane has traditionally desired some cap wiggle room at the beginning of each season in case a trade becomes necessary. Beckham might fit that description someday, but it’s not likely to happen soon.
