NFL: Bears OT J'Marcus Webb Has Salary Reduced By 50 Percent

Aug 19 2013, 2:51am CDT | by

Chicago Bears offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb agreed to a 50 percent pay cut.

Chicago Bears offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb had his salary reduced by 50 percent.

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs writes the pay cut followed Webb losing his starting spot on the offensive line a week ago. Biggs also clarifies it was Webb base pay which was reduced, but he was also given the opportunity of earning whatever he will lose via playing-time incentives.  

Biggs' reports cites a source with knowlege of the situation who says Webb's base pay will go down from the original $1.323 million in the 2013 NFL season to $630,000. The difference of $693,000 should provide some salary-cap relief as cornerback Kelvin Hayden is on injured reserve while defensive end Turk McBride is receiving an injury settlement, per Biggs. 

Prior to Webb's pay cut, only three NFL teams had less cap space than the Bears: the Houston Texans, St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs. Their salary cap space now stands at roughly $1.6 million, according to ChicagoNow.com's Adam Oestmann. 

CSN Chicago's Ryan Probasco points out that Webb's playing-time incentives may eventually open the door for rookie Jordan Mills to get more playing time at right tackle. 

This means Webb may battle it out with Jonathan Scott for a backup offensive tackle spot in order to make the Bears' 53-man roster.
