The Eagles renegotiated linebacker Bryan Braman's contract with a one-year extension. The deal gives the Eagles salary-cap relief in 2015 and keeps Braman under contract with the team through 2016.
Braman was set to make a base salary of $1.2 million this season. Now he will make $745,000. Braman also will have a base salary of $900,000 in 2016 as part of the new deal.
Braman, 27, signed a two-year deal with the Eagles last offseason. He was a key special-teams contributor, ranking fifth on the team with eight special-teams tackles. He played only nine defensive snaps.
By renegotiating the contract, the Eagles saved $455,000 of salary-cap space. The Eagles have about $8.276 million in cap space, according to the players association.
