Next CBA will require teams to spend $$$$

The offer made by the owners on March 11 included a commitment to spend 90 percent of the salary cap in cash. This would prevent teams from relying on “dead money” arising from trading or cutting players with large contracts in order to meet the minimum, and it would require all teams to spend a lot of money.

If this provision makes it into the final deal, it means that teams on the low side of the spending equation (and several were millions below what the cap floor would have been in 2010) will have to spend a lot of money in 2011.

That money could be spent via pursuing free agents, and there will be plenty of free agents available if, as expected, the minimum threshold moves from six year back to four. Or it could be spent on young players already on the roster who merit extensions.

Open up the wallet JR.

i think he will. Especially with no real serious lockout he won't have lost much money if any. So I hope we keep all of the core, all of them. And extend Beason. And sign Coefield.

Jonathan Joseph would be another great addition.

I think the idea was to spend anyway and give the new coach what he needs to succeed. Very rarely have we ever not bumped up against the cap.

Hmm, interesting. Braylon Edwards and Barry Cofield would make me happy.

I have seen way too many PFT Articles on the Huddle lately. Look guys, we made a commitment to not visit that trash heap. I have stood by it, I expect you to do the same.

Put up or shut up time for the Panthers indeed. They were never a bad team, their core was very good just very lacking in playmakers at QB,DE(to some degree) and DT.

Matt Moore will be one of these sought after free agents and his only problem last year was getting mauled by a Giants D that put a hurting on many QBs as we would come to find out later.

What I'm saying is that we lucked up last year in a way because we could have easily won more games had the line protected Matty Moore that day.

Now what we have is a potential Pro Bowler at the QB position. If we can only keep Smitty for a while longer. Now is the time JR. SB in three or bust.

for most of Fox's tenure weren't we basically hitting the cap anyway?

The Panthers have ALWAYS been one of the top spenders.

Except last year.

Get over it already.

Never said he wasn't a big spender, it's just that when we do spend we do stupid things like extending Delhomme or giving Gamble top CB money.

He already knows he will be spending a ton of money in 2011 if he is going to sign his core players. He will likely have to spend between 80-100 million in signing bonuses alone to resign, Kalil, Williams, Davis, Johnson, Anderson and all the other guys whose contracts are expiring or who they want to extend like Beason. Add to that the 20-30 million on Newton (40-50 if there is no rookie cap) he will given as a signing bonus, and he will approach that cash amount even without the money he will have already committed to salaries for players under contract. While he will be under the cap and will likely take out loans for much of that money he has to pay right away when they sign, our payroll with free agents could approach 200 million.

Does this include the Bleacher Report too?

I must not have gotten the memo.
