Mercilus restructured his contract with the Texans on Wednesday, converting 2022 and 2023 into voidable years, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Mercilus' base salary for 2021 is being restructured into a bonus to help free up some cap space for Houston, but the biggest change is that he's now set to become a free agent next offseason. After playing out the 2021 campaign -- which will mark his 10th season with the Texans -- the veteran edge rusher will have to either move on or negotiate a re-signing.
