JR a tight wad?

34 posts in this topic

I think my biggest concern with Jerry is historically when he does spend money it doesn't work out for the best. See Sean Gilbert, Reggie White, Chuck Smith, Deangelo Williams, Mike Wahle, Bad Jake, and Julius Peppers. The Panthers have done really well with mid price gems like Marlon McCree, Chris Draft, Greg Favors, Brenston Buckner, and Ricky Proehl.

Hopefully our most recent big money contracts work out but it made me a little mad when we were snug against the cap with a team that was similar to 2010.

Am so very tired of people thinking that JR is cheap!!!! We spent 12 mil to realese a QB that was shot and that was for the Panthers to get better. Then he cut a few never waz players and Observer crusified him for cheap and convinced a whole team that he was and it lives on and it makes me madddddddd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If ytou knew any thing don't see how you could ask this question put it to rest He isn't He wasn't and He never will be cheap.!end

What "never waz players" did he cut that convinced everyone he was cheap?

One thing I do like is all those guys listed on the forbes list proves that most of their contracts were front loaded. Meaning we are going to have that talent still under contract and for cheap when its time for cam's big day.

They are not front-loaded in any way. Even if you pay all the bonus money up front, it always gets spread out over the life of the deal.

Front-loaded deals have higher salaries in the first years of the deal and lower salaries in the last years.

Our players are on the list due to large bonuses, not front-weighted salaries.

You need to understand how the cap hit is calculated.

Take the signing bonus and divide it by the number of years on the contract. Add that number to each year's salary.

CJ's contract is in no way front-loaded. Nor is DWill's, nor Beason's. Paying a lot of money up front affects JR's cash flow, but it does not make the contract front-loaded.

when it comes to paying the players who've only ever played here, Jerry shells out the big bucks

when it comes to bringing in skilled players from other teams, he turns jewish

smh.

I really like D Will, but I think his contract was too much and I really think that he would've stayed for less. I really hope that we can resign J Stew!

it'd be front-loaded if his fixed, non-bonus/non-prorated salary was huge in the first few years but then declined in the final years of the contract. signing bonuses always have an even cap hit across the life of the contract.

teams will typically back-load contracts and provide a big up-front signing bonus in an attempt to avoid cap hell but to also table an attractive offer for a player. ultimately they're kicking the can down the road on the cap problems that may arise (i think CJ's cap hit hits almost $16 million in its last year) and assuming they can release/restructure/trade if need be.

So even though someone like CJ will actually receive all that money up front, the cap hit is spread around however the deal is structured?
