Chargers restructure Eddie Royal’s contract


As teams prepare for the start of NFL Free Agency by clearing up as much salary cap as possible, the San Diego Chargers became the latest team to restructure a deal by reworking the deal of wide receiver Eddie Royal.

According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diegothe restructure for Royal makes it likely that the Chargers will be able to bring back all of their wide receivers.

Last year, Royal had 47 passes for 631 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns.

San Diego is not done making just yet, but Royals decision to restructure the deal should allow the Chargers to re-sign more players and keep the team together rather than cut them loose.
