Brandon Fields, one of the NFL’s top punters, will remain with the Miami Dolphins after agreeing to restructure his contract.

Fields, 30, made the Pro Bowl and was named second-team All-Pro in 2013. He had the NFL’s 11th-best punt average and 21 punts inside the 20-yard line in 2014.

Prior to his restructuring, Fields would have counted $3.9 million against the cap in 2015 and the Dolphins would have saved $3.1 million by releasing him.

Full details of Fields’ new deal are not yet known.
