In today's breaking news, the Jets decided to rework Brandon Marshall's contract, per ESPN's Field Yates. Marshall will see an extra 1.3 mil guaranteed this year, and sees a bump in his 2016 salary as well.
Cimini writes that the Jets had previously agreed to rework Marshall's deal prior to trade, and had to wait until May 22 before the deal could start to be reworked.

This certainly doesn't move the needle much, though it cuts into potential rollover cap space for what already looks to be a tight cap next offseason. Not sure where Marshall's leverage was to ask that he get new money, except that perhaps the Bears did Marshall a favor by sending him to a place where the team would give him some extra money. Either way, congrats to Marshall. Get that cash.
