Jackson Adjusts Deal To Create More Cap Room

According to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com, the Bucs restructured the deals of wide receiver Vincent Jackson and guard Carl Nicks to create nearly $18 million more cap room in 2013.

The Bucs simply turned guaranteed salaries next year into roster bonuses this year, allowing them to prorate the money over the length of the deals.

That gave $12.16 million to Jackson and an extra $11.875 million for Nicks in exchange for the space next year. The Bucs now have $98 million committed to next year’s cap, which is projected to be around $121 million.
