Following the addition of Charles Woodson and his $1.38 million base salary, the Raiders have restructured Matt Flynn's contract to save $1 million off the 2013 salary cap according to Ian Rappoport.

This saves money now and shifts that money to next year when the Raiders are set to have around $50 million to spend under the cap.

Whether this is really about signing draft picks is debatable. The team will also get another $8 million after June 1st when Michael Huff's dead money prorates and there is no rush to sign their picks now. The team didn't sign their draft picks until July last year.
