We finally have some details on guard Mackenzy Bernadeau’s restructured contract.
According to Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas, the reworked deal will cut Bernadeau’s base pay for 2014 from $2.75 Million to $1.1 million. His cap number went from $4 million to just under $3 million and the Cowboys will save about $1.15 million against the cap thanks to the move.
In addition, Bernadeau will receive a $500,000 roster bonus and can earn another $400,000 in production incentives next year.
Bernadeau started and finished the 2013 season as the Cowboys starting right guard. In between, veteran Brian Waters took over the starting job, but Bernadeau got it back when Waters suffered a torn triceps against the Lions in November. After returning, Bernadeau seemed to have benefited from Waters’ influence and played a significant role in the best season for a Cowboys’ offensive line in recent memory.
