Steve Corkran reports that the Oakland Raiders have-restructured-the contract of S-Tyvon Branch.
Branch, 26, had a base salary of-$6 million for the 2013 season. The Raiders have lowered that figure to-$715,000.
Typically, teams pay out the difference in a bonus that's prorated over the remainder of the player's contract. This provides cap relief in the time being.
Branch signed a-four-year deal worth $26.6 million that contained $17.6 million guaranteed last year.
