Could even see the panthers extending him, to help with the cap.
Not knowing how many yars is left on gross' contract, hard to say if a restructure will help much. He could also be extended again, this time for RT money...would give him more money now, and we'd have him to move to RT if and when we find his replacement at LT.
Johnson's and Williams' contract won't be touched.
They can tear up Davis' contract, and give him a new, cap friendly contract.
Gamble's won't be touched, unless he's extended, which wouldn't be the best decision as he'd cost more money in a new coontract.

and? all that matters is what he can do for you now and for how long.
Smitty is basically the same age as Williams when you look at the positions. Why would Smitty want a backloaded deal where all his money is packaged where it would make the most sense to part ways w/ him. Smitty is going to look after Smitty.
Backloading or front loading isn't the biggest issue. How much guaranteed money they receive is the issue as it is the only thing they can count on. If they get quite a bit guaranteed, they will be glad to back load it especially if they know the cap is going to expand down the road. That way they believe they might actually receive it.
