Michael Bennett Restructures Contract With Cowboys; Set to be a Free Agent After the Season

Michael Bennett

Newly acquired defensive end Michael Bennett has yet to play a game with his new team, the Dallas Cowboys. But, that has not stopped him from restructuring his contract.

Bennett was sent to Dallas after spending the first portion of the season with the New England Patriots. Now, a little more than a week later, the defensive end has restructured his contract and is set to be a free agent come March.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, with base salary paired with active roster bonuses, Bennett has the opportunity to earn about $2 million for the remainder of the season. That does not include $750-thousand in incentives.

The pass rusher has already made approximately $5.6 million with the Patriots this season. Included in that pay was a $4 million signing bonus after receiving him from the Eagles.

The Cowboys are now the fourth franchise Bennett has been a part of in the last three seasons. After the restructuring of his contract, he will have the opportunity to sign to another team this offseason. Whether he does or not is still in question.
