Looks to me this could be an issue at some point with some of the future starts we now have.

Not really, it's kind of a cycle that always plays itself out. Injuries, age, loyalty, etc., they all eventually come into play and the contracts never live up to the actual numbers.

As much as I like DeAngelo Williams, he didn't deserve that big contract he got...he's 29 and J-Stew will likely pass him as the #1 back this year.

It sucked seeing Beason get that contract and then go down with an injury but he was a top 5 LB before the injury and deserved it. CJ's skills don't line up to his paycheck but he could have gotten that amount of $$ somewhere else (like Atlanta) so JR had to pay him to get him to stay, and I see no problem with that because he's a solid player on a team that needs defensive studs. Kalil might be the best center in the league, and he's paid like it (highest paid center, right?)

CJs performance has been ok. I would say he's not athletically gifted like some of the premier DEs in the league but he had some crazy number like 8 sacks in the first 9 games. He just wore down with injuries, and to many snaps.

Unless you are JR and taking the money out of your own pocket, this list has little meaning.

These guys are on the list because they signed in 2011 and they are including their entire signing bonus in the calculations. None of them will be on the list in 2012.

This. I don't know why this is so hard for people to grasp.

JR has never really been a tightwad, except for the one year when he was preparing for the lockout. And I don't blame him for that at all.

only people that thought JR was a tightwad simply don't follow the Panthers or have selective memory.

JR has NEVER been afraid to toss cash around. 1 year he made a calculated decision.....nothing more

He's a businessman. And a very successful one at that. Spend wisely, you'll do well. Spend recklessly, you'll be out of business. He's no dummy.
