Texans | Dan Orlovsky’s contract restructured
The Houston Texans have restructured the contract of QB Dan Orlovsky, according to John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle. Orlovsky's restructured deal calls for him to make a base salary of $850,000 - a reduction from $2.25 million. He can make up the difference by earning $25,000 for every game he's the backup quarterback. Orlovsky also can earn $100,000 for every game he's the starting quarterback - a maximum of 10 games and $1 million. Orlovsky was scheduled to earn $2.75 million next season. Instead, he'll receive a base salary of $1.375 million. He can earn back the difference if he's No. 2 for one game this season. He will be the No. 2 quarterback for Week 1, which means he won't be taking a pay cut next year.
