Is KasEy a new player weve signed?
Yeah, he replaced good ol' Fat-Fingered & Forgot About.

Julius Peppers(DE) $14,137,500 - Per year number could go down when we resign him.
Jake Delhomme(QB) $10,956,666 - Could restructure.
Jordan Gross(OL) $7,461,240 - Could go up when we resign him?
Ken Lucas(CB) $5,905,000 - Should restructure...could even get cut.

Landon Johnson(LB) $1,705,000 - Definitely cut or restructured.

landon johnson is making way too much to be a back-up, especially in this system, he's from a 3-4, we like the chunkier LBs for ST but this is too expensive
lucas has had some bad games, I still want him here because i don't think we could find a better player in the draft or FA, i think we should restructure or resign to something cheaper, he's never been as good as 2005, need to devote money elsewhere
hackett may be gone, he's not getting any touches which can't be that easy to deal with for a guy who had #2 in his sights, and hasn't really shown much either but we may keep him who knows, I'm expecting big things in the playoffs from him though

Peppers - He wants to be in Carolina and everyone knows what kind of money he deserves and he will get that money. No problem here. I wouldn't be surprised if we lock him up for the rest of his career.
Delhomme - I have a feeling that he would play for some Bojangles as long as he is our starting QB.
This point was already demonstrated with the early signings of Kasay and Gamble. I'm sure Gamble could have gotten at least a slightly better deal if he tested free agency.
Others who would make some sort of sacrifice to stay in Carolina (IMO) - Gross, Beason, Hangman, Goings, Hoover, Muhammed.
I'm not talking about this offseason specifically, but just in general.
