Seahawks Create $7.4M in Cap Space

The Seahawks restructured the contract of defensive lineman Dre’Mont Jones converting $9.875 million of Jones’ 2024 salary into a signing bonus to create $7.4 million in cap room for the season, lowering his salary cap charge to $10.77 million. Jones’ 2025 salary cap number increased by $2.468 million to $25.645 million and two void years were added to the contract. The two void years currently hold $4.9 million in salary cap charges.

The move was necessitated by the Seahawks current salary cap position which saw the team with a league low amount of cap room, about $1.1 million, prior to the restructure. This should give Seattle the breathing room to now function the rest of the summer and into the regular season.
