Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby has restructured his contract a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed to Shutdown Corner on Thursday. Crosby had been scheduled to earn $2.4 million in base salary during the 2013 season. Under the restructured contract Crosby will earn $800000 in base salary which will be fully guaranteed if he's on the team's roster on Saturday Sept. 7. Crosby can make up the $1.6 million difference via roster bonuses throughout the season and through performance incentives. The remaining two years of Crosby's contract were not changed. Following the 2011 lockout Crosby signed a five-year $14.75 million contract that included $3 million in guaranteed money. Crosby responded by establishing a career-high 85.7 percent field goal percentage and pumped 49 kickoffs for touchbacks. Crosby struggled in 2012 however connecting on just 63.6 percent of his field goal attempts. Though Crosby would finish the season on a strong note his future with the Packers was in jeopardy.
