Nate Burleson's restructured contract drops his 2013 base salary from $4.5 million to $2 million.

His new cap number is $4.031 million. Burleson would have surely had to take a bigger cut were it not for the sorry state of the Lions' receiver corps. As it is, Ryan Broyles' injury and the firing of Titus Young ensure he'll be a big part of the offense in 2013.
