The Philadelphia Eagles and linebacker Bryan Braman have agreed to a reworked contract that will grant Braman a one-year extension while saving the team some salary cap room, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com.
The new agreement between Philadelphia and Braman will extend his deal through 2016, and reduce the linebacker's salary in 2015 from $1.2 million to $745,000, reports Yates.
According to Elliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com, Braman's guaranteed money will also increase and the team will have several million left over to spend.
Braman, a veteran entering his fifth year in the league, provided the Eagles depth and was an important member of Philadelphia's special teams unit.
During the 2014 season, Braman's first with the Eagles after three seasons with the Texans, the linebacker appeared in all 16 games and recorded six tackles. He also blocked a Packers punt that was returned to Green Bay's 5-yard line.
Philadelphia finished last season 10-6, ranking 22nd in points allowed and 28th in yards allowed.
