The Patriots are reportedly adjusting the player’s contract to clear cap space

The Patriots reportedly made a small roster move this week to give themselves some financial wiggle room.

New England special teams contract ‘slightly reworked’ Cody Davis, freeing up $250,000 in salary cap spaceaccording to a report Tuesday from ESPN’s Mike Reiss.

The restructuring did not extend Davis’ deal, according to Reiss’ report, with the 33-year-old still set to hit free agency after this season. After the move, the Patriots have roughly $2 million in cap space with eight games left in the regular season.

Davis, who joined the Patriots in 2020, will not be available for those games as he recovers from a season-ending knee injury suffered during the Patriots’ Week 6 win over the Browns in Cleveland. New England subsequently placed the special teams ace on injured reserve and signed undrafted rookie Raleigh Webb from the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad to handle many of Davis’ in-game duties of kicks

Before his injury, he left special teams captain Matthew Slater “eviscerated”, Davis ranked second on the team in special teams snaps. He still ranks second among Patriots players in special teams tackles with six despite missing the last three games, trailing only him. impressive UDFA Brenden Schooler (eight).

The 5-4 Patriots are getting ready host the New York Jets 6-3 this Sunday at Gillette Stadium. The AFC East match starts at challenging schedule in the second half for New England that includes five games against teams currently in playoff spots.
