Report: Bills’ Dawson Knox reworks contract, helps team free cap space

Following the slew of roster decisions the Buffalo Bills had to make last week, tight end Dawson Knox has helped his team out in the salary cap department.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Knox and the Bills have agreed to a “reworked” deal. The details are sparse, but the important note in that it will bring down his $14.4 million cap hit he was slated to have in 2024:

With the lack of details, there is a possibility that Knox took a bit of a pay cut like defensive end Von Miller did last week. A follow-up report is likely to come in the near future detailing exactly what Knox’s contract looks like now.

In a similar manner, there’s a chance Knox took that pay cut and added incentives into his deal so he can earn some of the money back.

The new contract from Knox comes on the heels of his worst season in the NFL. Knox recorded a career low of 22 receptions for 180 yards, and only two touchdowns. Dalton Kincaid was Buffalo’s first-round rookie in 2023 as well.
