I get frustrated that this doesn't happen sooner. Sometimes it feels like they drag their feet to do this.

He's on "vacation" ...when he tweeted that I wanted badly to ask him how we could tell the difference. But I didn't.

All we did was push our cap problems into next season. Three years from now they will be trying to cut Gregg because his cap figure in $9m

We restructured his deal and still have the least cap in the NFL?


Wharton frees up 5 Mil+ on June. I have a feeling some of these restructures aren't being factored in until a later date as well.

Sure, we can manipulate the cap we don't have right now. But if they wouldn't have overpaid in the first place, they wouldn't have to restructure.


yea i guess we would be fine without paying beason, charles johnson, olsen, deangelo, kalil, gamble and steve smith. We could probably then sign vincent jackson and win the super bowl.

That sounds like your own patience. They work at their own pace when they need to get things done.

Pushing money to the future doesn't get rid of bad decisions in the past. Call me whatever you want for not being happy with being at the bottom (if not the very bottom) of the league in cap situation.

Laugh away


Any contract decision is made with the full knowledge that numbers can be manipulated and the cap will always go up.

Every good team does this.

100% correct. These contracts are so complicated and every last detail is analyzed before an offer is made and signed. It wouldn't be such a complicated process if FO's didn't factor future relevance into contract details.

All the worriers are just worrying for the sake of worrying.

We all do it at some point and time. I'm guilty as well.

Best use of a Panthers 3rd Round pick since Charles Johnson.
