In a move that will save the Miami Dolphins money, punter Brandon Fields has re-structured his contract. Fields, who was selected by the Dolphins in the seventh round of the 2007 draft, was approached about re-structuring several days ago. There was a thought that he would accept his release and test the market but ultimately decided to stay in South Florida.
The details of the re-structured contract aren't available but it is expected to be around $3 million dollars. Fields was set to make $3.9 million dollars this season and had he been cut, the Dolphins would've save $3.1 million dollars. With this move, he will create approximately $1 million dollars in cap space.
