The Chargers are restructuring the contract of Denzel Perryman and extending for one more year, per NFL Insider Ian Rapaport.
The #Chargers and LB Denzel Perryman agreed to terms on a restructured contract to keep him with the team for another year, source said. He was originally slated to make more than $6M in 2020, now incentives can get him to that number.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 13, 2020
Tom Telesco is continuing to make all the right moves prior to free agency and this is another big one that will help clear some cap space for a potential big-splash signing in the coming weeks. Perryman played sparing at the beginning of the season and saw his snaps increase as he slowly got healthy from a lower-body injury.
He played in 14 games with starts last season, finishing with 68 tackles and five tackles-for-loss. Perryman has still yet to play an entire 16-game season, only playing in more than 12 twice in his five-year career.
