Panthers have the least cap space?

40 posts in this topic

Well the Gamble restructure saved the team 8million right?

So we should be in the teens by the time every move is made.

The 1.9 would have included the Gamble restructure as it happened/reported earlier this week.

And for the record, Delhomme's contract can not be restructured. The only way the Panthers can save cap room with Delhomme is to cut him or extend his contract.

Right now were just under 8 million under the cap.

I think this does include all recent moves. IMO, being under the cap is all that matters. Now that the team is in a position that they can keep the tag on Peppers and not have to release him, offers will start to come in. I would not be surprised if Peppers is traded to Denver or Houston by Monday and the Panthers have close to 20 million to spend in FA.

True. But that $20 M won't be very useful if we don't move him in the very early days of FA.

Can you elaborate? You may be right, but without some details I'm not inclined to believe jasonluckydog over Adam Schefter.

Why not? I think you have until a certain date to be under the cap.

So in truth we could sign a lot for a lot, as long as we're under the cap by the date specified.

that is incorrect....the league would not approve the contract if you are over the cap when you offer and sign it.

At first I agreed with you that there is no way we are 8 million under. But I think it may be even more than that.

First reports had us entering the offseason at 10 million under the cap. The cap has since been increased by 4 million giving the team 14 million under.

They have signed 4 players to contracts; Peppers, Gross, King and Anderson. Those contracts total 19.338 million.

They have made several moves including cuts, restructures and extensions. Those moves I have totaling 15.540 million in cap savings. Here's a quick run down of those moves: Goings .75, Bridges 1.25, Hackett 1.04, Lewis 2.00, Johnson 1.00, Kemo 1.50 and Gamble 8.00.

So 14.000 - 19.338 + 15.540 = 10.202 million in cap space. My guess is that Schefter hasn't included that 8 million move with Gambles contract.

Good stuff. Thanks.

How could that be right when Pep alone is making $16 mil and Gross' contract pays $30 mil the first three years.

You are correct sir. That should be 29.338 million. So that means my math was way off. So that would only leave the Panthers with .202 million in cap space. So Schefter is probably right on with his total of 1.9 million.

Damn, I glad you caught my mistake but at the same time 1.9 million isn't that much at all.
