The Chicago Bears will get some extra breathing room today. 

Thanks to Trey Burton's release, the Bears will rework some salary cap numbers. 

Here's all the details from overthecap.com:

"The Bears dropped Trey Burton despite a $4 million salary guarantee on a $6.8 million salary but a glut of tight ends made him expendable. Burton had counted at $8.55 million but the team will only pick up $2.8 million in cap space since his dead money, even with the June 1, is $5.75 million. The Bears will have a $1.75 million cap charge next season for Burton but should receive a $910,000 credit if Burton makes the Colts this season. The Bears will now have around $11 million in cap room in 2020 which should be enough for them to function during the season."

Can't complain about a little extra space.
