The Tennessee Titans restructured the contract of outside linebacker Harold Landry, according to multiple reports. The Titans had to create some room ahead of Sunday’s regular-season opener with the New Orleans Saints. Landry was always a straightforward candidate.
#Titans restructured Harold Landry’s deal to create some wiggle room with the cap. I figured this was coming at some point all offseason. Doesn’t guarantee any new money since his 2023 salary was already fully guaranteed. https://t.co/6ti8q7hpPn— Mike Herndon (@MikeHerndonNFL) September 6, 2023
Restructuring Landry’s contract creates $8.25 million in cap space, according to Field Yates. Landry’s 2023 salary was already fully guaranteed. The Titans now have between $8.35 million and $10.5 million in cap space, according to OverTheCap and Spotrac.
Landry’s cap hit for the 2023 campaign is now $10.5 million. It’ll climb significantly in 2024 to $23.8 million, when the contracts of Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry are set to expire. In 2025 and 2026, Landry’s cap hit is scheduled to be $26 million. The former Boston College standout will be a potential cap casualty.
Landry signed a five-year, $87.5 million extension with $52.5 million guaranteed ahead of the 2022 campaign. He then suffered a season-ending torn ACL in training camp. Landry is fully recovered and ready to return.
