Bennett was believed to be on the roster bubble after struggling to get healthy after a concussion earl in training camp. The restructured contract may have been what solidified his place on the team.
Bennett was reportedly due $2.25 million for the season, and now his base salary is $1.25 million. However, he reportedly can earn some of that money back with performance bonuses.
The Bears open the season Sunday, hosting the Cincinnati Bengals.
