The Redskins have restructured the contract of Adam Carriker, the defensive end confirmed.

The move comes as Washington works to get below the salary cap by Tuesday afternoon’s deadline. Carriker was due to count roughly $4.75 million against the cap this season.

Carriker just re-signed with Washington last season on a four-year deal. He missed all but two games with injury. His new deal doesn’t change in terms of seasons. The cap number for this season lowers, however.

“I’m glad to be able to help the team with the Salary Cap issue,” he said.

Washington earlier on Monday released cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who was due $8 million.
