OAKLAND, Calif., March 7 (UPI) -- The Oakland Raiders have restructured the contracts of wide receiver Ronald Curry and running back LaMont Jordan.

Both players agreed to take salary cuts for the 2007 season.

"As we continue to find ways to build and improve upon our team through our evaluation process, it was imperative that LaMont and Ronald were on board," new coach coach Lane Kiffin said. "It was extremely important to get their contract situations settled. We look forward to working with both players, introducing them to the many changes we will have on offense, and including them in our new team philosophy as well."

Jordan played in only nine games last season because of a knee injury he suffered on Nov. 19.

He gained 434 yards on 114 carries and scored two touchdowns before the injury ended his season.

Curry will be entering his sixth season, all with Oakland.

In 47 NFL games, he has 119 receptions for 1,449 yards and seven touchdowns.
