Rivera says, ``He did, and believe me it's greatly appreciated.''
Rivera did not say how much salary cap space the move creates for Carolina.
Beason was going to earn $5.25 million this year, $6.5 million in 2014, $7.5 million in 2015 and $8.75 million in 2016.
Beason went to three Pro Bowls in his first four seasons in the league with Carolina and didn't miss a game during that span. However, he's missed 26 of the past 32 games since then due to injuries.
Beason says he agreed to restructure his contract because ``you do what you can do to help out the team.''
