It's not the roster spot I'm talking about. A FA like Byrd will cost $4-6 mill a year. Someone making actual money will have to be cut since we are over the 2013 cap. Gamble? DWill?

I think we will trade Gamble in the off season. Too soft. Lost the fire. This is a youth movement.

Naturally whoever JR hires to be GM will be asked "what can you do to squeeze some cap room out of this colossal mess?"

That said, being able to sign any top tier FA's will be a long shot, but getting a saftey like Byrd would go a long way to fixing the deep pass protection issue the Panthers have.

Byrd is a good player. Would be a big upgrade for our struggling Safety position.

Need to draft a bad ass SS to go along with him

Why? I would rather have Godfrey then a rookie SS when we have other needs to fill

When the ball is in the air he can drape a hell of a blanket over receivers. However I've seen him get burn't, give up a 10 yard padding allowing no inviting the quick slant. He is also getting older and we are paying him a pretty penny. Great player. Wrong situation.

Because Godfrey isnt good. He's a liability in coverage. and hes eating up too much $ for his lack of production

IMO.

a couple restructures and a few extensions and we should be fine. Besides the only player that would save us money if we cut him would be Gamble and even then I don't think it saves us all that much.

We will be 10 mil under the cap by June 2nd. Don't worry about it.
