Does anyone know how we stand as far as salary cap space for next season?

Or have a link to a good site to find information like this.


They showed a thing about it during one of these playoff games, and i saw we weren't near the top or bottom, so I know were obviously somewhere in the middle.

I know that they are saying the cap number will be $123,000,000.00. I am pretty sure that we will be fine.

Especially since Pep is going to take a pay cut from what he is making this year. I don't see us signing him to a contract that pays 15 mil annually, at least I hope thats not what it takes.

Why would Pep be taking a pay cut?

Hard to say right now.

Bonus $$ made for making the playoffs for players will count against next year's cap. And won't know the amount of bonus until the Panthers' season is actually over.

Its not a pay cut, but all contracts are back loaded with more money per yr towards the end because contracts arent binding basically. This is the last year of a deal for him so he is making more then in years past. It wont be a pay cut over the contract just less in the first year of the new contract then the last year of the previous. Hopefully anyways

Because he is counting almost 15 million against the cap this year. Any contract that he signs will probably pay in the 10 million a year range at best, I hope, never really know.

So in a sense, it will be a reduction in salary.

Ahh, I didn't realize that. The other stuff about Peppers makes sense.

So how about the two first rounders then?
Will us not having a first rounder this year help, since the money from the two first rounders won't hit hard until a few years?
Or not be too much of a factor?

I bet our cap space will suck that year when both Otah and Stewart's contracts are in their last year.(unless we have no cap at that time)

It all just depends. The first round pick wouldn't have broke us anyways since it will be the 28th selection at worst.

We have nothing to worry about. There'll be a few more millions freed up with cuts that come every offseason, plus we've got to re-sign Pep and that should free up 2-3 million, quite easily even at a record contract.
