The number in parentheses is the cap hit the Panthers would take for trading or cutting that player.

DeAngelo Williams, RB........$9,200,000 ($21,800,000)

I don't believe this is true. Williams got a 16 mill signing bonus which we will take the hit for that if we were to cut or trade him. The other 5 mill of his guaranteed money was guaranteed salary for 2012. We eat that if we cut him but I believe it goes to the team that takes him in trade. Basically, we take the hit for prorations. Guranteed salaries are not prorated but could be converted to signing bonus which would change that.

I think Richardson handing out all these huge contracts was more of a message that he's not cheap than anything. We basically set the market for a lot of positions. D Williams contract, Ryan Kalil being highest paid center in the league, Godfrey getting tons of cash. Not to mention Johnson, Beason, Anderson, etc. Although several of those contracts make perfect sense.

But yeah, after 2010 and basically tanking everything until the new CBA came along... Richardson wanted to let us all know that he is definitely trying to win again.

Dwill's contract is front loaded from everything I've seen, he's making a base salary this season of around 6 million, Next season his cap hit should be around 8.2 million or so. His deal averages to a little over 8.5 million a season, the last 2 years he'll probably never see.

I like DWill and was one of the ones who wanted to resign him but wow.

I know it's piling on but that looks to be a somewhat handcuffing type of deal, especially given his play compared to Stews.

his last 2 seasons will equate to roughly 6 million total.

...i've posted several times that williams would collect most of his contract in 2-3 seasons.

i wish i was wrong.

Not doubting you but I searched the net for a while a few weeks ago looking for any information on Hangartner's contract and came up blank. Did you find a reliable source showing it was just a one year deal?

Even with cuts next year we will be cash strapped. We can forget about FA next year and will be lucky if we can sign Shockey and Hangman back.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
