Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Eagles offensive lineman Stacy Andrews has restructured his contract.
"Eagles OL Stacy Andrews restructured his contract Monday, lowering his 2010 base salary from $2.95 million to $1.15 million. Bonus also paid," tweeted Schefter.
Andrews was signed as a free agent last off-season after a productive career as a Cincinnati Bengal. Andrews underwent reconstructive knee surgery in January of 2009 and was unable to work himself into the starting lineup for the Eagles in 2009 while still recovering from the procedure and adjusting to the new system.
Andrews, 6-foot-7, 342 pounds, indicated earlier this off-season that he would be willing to restructure his contract in order to return to Philadelphia and make an impact as a starter at right guard in 2010. The other interior linemen on the Eagles roster include two restricted free agents, Max Jean-Gilles and Nick Cole, as well as Mike McGlynn, Todd Herremans and A.Q. Shipley.
UPDATE: Geoff Mosher of Delaware Online tweeted: "Source: Stacy Andrews will get $4.1 million roster bonus, will be Eagle. Adam Schefter reported that Andrews agreed to lower salary in 2010."
