Scheduled to make $2.75 million this year we don't know yet how much the Bills save - but in all likelihood Smith has just dramatically increased his chances of sticking around.

Veteran wide receiver Brad Smith signed a re-structured contract with the Buffalo Bills as he reported for training camp on Friday according to NFL reporter Aaron Wilson.

Smith who signed a four-year $15 million free agent deal with the Bills following the lockout in the summer of 2011 was scheduled to make base salaries of $2.75 million and $3 million (with another $500000 coming in the form of a roster bonus next spring) in the final two years of his deal. Though we don't yet know what the terms of his new deal look like it's a very safe bet that those base salary numbers have shrunken significantly - and if so his odds of making the final 53-man roster will increase dramatically.
