According to Andrew Brandt, the Seahawks restructured QB Russell Wilson‘s contract and converted part of his salary into a signing bonus.

Brandt specifically mentions that Seattle converted $6.26 million of Wilson’s salary into a bonus and prorated it over remaining three years of the agreement. In turn, this move freed up $4.1 million of cap room.

Seattle had to create some cap room to fit newly acquired LT Duane Brown in their current cap situation, so a move was expected.
