We have created $11M iп cap space as Bradley Chυbb $13.75M of his base salary iпto sigпiпg boпυs



The Miami Dolphins made a huge splash in 2022 when they traded for linebacker Bradley Chubb at the trade deadline, forming a duo with Jaelan Phillips that could be one of the best in the league.

Right after the trade was completed, Miami signed Chubb to a five-year extension worth $110 million with $63.2 million guaranteed.

Now, before the 2024 season starts, the Dolphins have restructured Chubb’s contract for the second time to create more cap space, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.


With the move, Miami converts $13.75 million of his base salary into a signing bonus, which creates $11 million in cap space for the team, as they continue signing free agents and prepare for the upcoming year.


Chubb is recovering from a torn ACL, so there’s no guarantee that he’ll be ready for Week 1, but the Dolphins did address the position this past week, signing veteran edge rusher Shaq Barrett from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
