Jon Runyan has agreed to play for a little less money, something which could actually help both sides of the deal. He gets a little more money guaranteed and it all works out to a little less of a cap hit for the Eagles. It is nice to see a guy who has millions already not get too greedy.

Eagles iron man Jon Runyan, the ultimate team guy, quietly has agreed to a restructured contract with a modest reduction in pay.
At the end of this year, the last on a six-year pact, Runyan will have pocketed $4.9 million instead of the $5.5 million in base pay due from the original $30.5 million deal, according to reliable sources. The initial contract, struck in 2000, included $9.5 million in signing and roster bonuses.
The new deal includes a base of $2.7 million, a guarantee of $2 million and another $200,000 in play incentives, meaning the veteran right offensive tackle must add to his remarkable streak of 128 straight regular season starts, fifth-longest among active players.
