Two key members of the Oakland Raiders defense have restructured their contracts to help the team's salary cap situation, according to the Oakland Tribune.

Defensive tackle Richard Seymour has dropped his base salary to $925,000 and taken just over $6.5 million and converted it into a guaranteed roster bonus that will be prorated over the remainder of his contract.

Likewise, safety Michael Huff's base salary has been lowered to $700,000 with the rest converted to a bonus that lowers his cap number nearly $6 million.

The Raiders may still redo quarterback Carson Palmer,who has a $12.5 million salary and linebacker Kamerion Wimbley, who is due $6.5 million guaranteed.
