The 49ers continue to create much-needed salary cap space any way they can.

After restructuring linebacker Fred Warner and fullback Kyle Juszczyk’s contracts to create roughly $11.75 million in combined cap space and then releasing defensive tackle Arik Armstead as a post-June 1 cut to create nearly $18 million in cap space, the 49ers aren’t done giving themselves more financial flexibility.

San Francisco restructured tight end George Kittle’s contract, creating roughly $10 million in cap space, ESPN’s Field Yates reported Friday morning.

The 49ers, according to, also restructured defensive tackle Javon Hargrave’s contract, converting approximately $7.7 million of his 2024 base salary into a signing bonus, which frees up around $6.14 million in cap space

Kittle originally signed a five-year, $75 million contract extension with the 49ers right before the 2020 NFL season and previously restructured his contract before the 2023 season to help create space for defensive end Nick Bosa’s record-breaking contract extension.

Hargrave was San Francisco’s big free-agent splash last offseason, signing a whopping four-year, $81 million contract with the 49ers last spring.

Now San Francisco has extra financial flexibility to fill a number of the roster holes that remain before the 2024 NFL Draft begins on April 25.
