So by letting Peppers walk,Cutting Lucas, Landon Johnson,and D.J Hackett.....

thats just a few that come to mind, that should free up a ton of money for us to make a splash. I cant find any official cap figures so i really dont know. can someone please look this up?

Peppers has no effect on the comming cap if he leaves. If franchised its around 17 mill hit.

Lucas hurts about 9mil.

Hackett maybe 1mill, his contract was next to nothing.

Johnson I'm not sure of, he got a decent deal, but nothing really outragous.

Jake will get an extension for him to retire or get cut with. Pushing his cap hit back several years, I would guess 3-5 mill in cap savings from that.

So maybe another 10mill ? Keep in mind that number Yasinskas threw out it's 100% by any means. Hurney and his people do some masterful cap work with contracts and incentives.

Gambles 53 mill deal is whats eating up most of the cap space right now. He gets 4 mill this year plus 10 mill bonus before camp.

the cap is 123 million with club/player benefits rising that to around 149 million for the upcoming season. Landon Johnson was given a 3 year 10 million dollar deal and his salary for next season is around 2 million. Lewis is getting paid 3.17 million next year. Lucas salary next year is 5.6 million. Hackett's salary next season is 2.3 million. Cutting all of those players would net us around 13 million in cap space. pushing our total cap room after peppers and gross' contract come off the books, leaving us with around 44 million in cap space to sign players. Add more to that if we extend Delhomme's contract. Leave 10 million of the top for Various reasons (rookie pool, etc.) and we have roughly 34 million for FA.

That being said...

I don't like the phrase 'money to burn.' Don't need to throw money at some Vet just to see what he can do. But I think we all know that. Be smart like last offseason and take calculated risks. If we get a team together for under 20 mil under the cap, then more power to us.

Salary only doesn't equal cap hit.

Exactly. Plus cutting them sometimes mean that the portion of their compensation which is prorated over 3 years for example becomes due when they are cut or if a June 1 cut over 2 years (roster bonus, signing bonus, inentives likely to be earned). So cutting them may or may not save us money.

Could the panthers deal Pep to the Pats for Cassel and maybe a 2nd rounder...would that be even possible and worth it. Just a thought cause would work for both teams.
