Report: Juszczyk, 49ers agree to restructured contract

Report: Juszczyk, 49ers agree to restructured contract originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area

The 49ers are creating some much-needed salary cap relief.

San Francisco has agreed to a restructured contract with All-Pro fullback Kyle Juszczyk that will free up approximately $1.75 million in salary cap space, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Wednesday.

Although the exact contract figures have not been reported, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported shortly after that Juszczyk still remains the highest-paid fullback in the league after the restructure.

Juszczyk originally had a base salary of $5.75 million for the 2024 NFL season after signing a five-year, $27 million contract extension with San Francisco in March 2021.

It remains to be seen what Juszczyk's restructured contract will look like, but with the 49ers still looking to bolster multiple positions this offseason, the financial flexibility created by Juszczyk and linebacker Fred Warner's contract restructures, plus the release of defensive tackle Arik Armstead, certainly helps.
