The Houston Texans’ new general manager, Nick Caserio, continues his best efforts to undo the widely panned moves made by the previous regime. This time, he’s restructured inside linebacker Zach Cunningham’s contract, converting a large chunk to a signing bonus and freeing up more cap room.

Former head coach/general manager Bill O’Brien extended Cunningham last August for a very pretty penny. Today, the immediate strain of that contract on the Texans’ salary cap has been somewhat mitigated.
