http://espn.go.com/b...-cap-challenges

The recent spending spree by the Carolina Panthers, highlighted by owner Jerry Richardson writing checks for more than $100 million in signing bonuses, is going to come with a very steep price -- down the road.

I just looked ahead to what each team currently has committed to the salary cap in 2014 and 2015. The Panthers lead the league in both years and it’s not even close.

The Panthers already have $91.6 million committed toward the cap in 2014. The Green Bay Packers are next at $62 million and most teams are around $30 million to $40 million. Heck, the Cleveland Browns are last with $17.7 million scheduled against the cap that year.



Not a whole lot going on right this minute, thought it was at least slightly interesting how high the numbers were.

Is it really a bad thing that we have our core group of talent locked up for the next few years?

Considering we are probably one of the few teams with it's core players signed through 2014/2015 I have no problem with this.

Not at all, just thought it was interesting at how high the 2014 and 2015 cap figures are with very few players signed on to the team. I'm glad the team went and spent the money to keep the Core around for the next few seasons.

Also not a whole lot going on right now and figured it would get some witty remarks. "huddle never fails"

ESPN never fails with irrelevant articles. You are right, at least it I'd something to talk about even if they make it sound like it is something bad.

i wonder what 2012 and 2013 look like? probably a lot of room for securing talent we find along the way and adding in areas we need.

JR did the right thing and we have some solid players locked up.

According to the article there are six guys scheduled to make over 60 million in 2015. That is a lot for 6 guys, but all of it isn't guaranteed. Also, the Raiders were 15 million over the cap last week and got under by restructuring a couple contracts.

This article is interesting, but nothing to be concerned about.

Don't really understand why many post any and everything they read online. At this point we are undefeated and I am excited about the season.

that is a ton of money, for who knows how many players but contracts usually get reworked or extended to lower the hits towards the end

Don't forget that the TV contracts are going to be renegotiated between now and then. When that happens the cap is expected to move WAY up so the money we owe will be a lower percentage of the cap.
