Per Rotoworld.com:

The Panthers can clear over $1 million in salary cap space by waiving Jimmy Clausen next month.
Clausen is due a $923,000 roster bonus on March 27. He spent 2011 as Carolina's third-stringer, inactive on all 16 game days after failing to beat out Derek Anderson for the Panthers' backup job. The Panthers are up against the cap, and need to shed $9.6 million before the new league year (March 13).



I hate to say farewell, but it's sad to see you go.

:jc:

For a 10th round pick and a bucket of Bojangles.

well, there was little doubt anyway, but this ensures that he's gone.

roster bonus counts against the cap?

I would trade Clausen for a toilet paper roll, I'm running low and those burritos don't treat me nicely.

They'll probably hang onto him until training camp at least, and try to get a low or conditional pick for him. Low risk high reward for a team with a sudden desperation at the quarterback position.

The XFL no longer exists, and the NFL wouldn't trade with them to begin with.

Philly, there's desperation and then there's trading for Jimmy Clausen. I don't even know what you would call the latter. I think we may need to create a new word for that kinda situation.

I don't think many believe it to be possible. But why would anyone trade for him, knowing he is probably going to be released.

Only team that maaaaaaaybe would do it is the Seahawks. But even then, I doubt it.

He will be cut.

He will get one more shot though.

He'll get cut. We don't need to carry 3 QBs anyway. We could use the extra roster spot for someone else that can actually be useful. If it does come down to the 3rd stringer, our season is screwed anyway and we could pick up someone off the street that's 100 times better than Jimmy.
