How will our cap problems will influence the draft and the roster?

I know fixing the cap has not been a been a big deal in the past but I think the big contracts given last year present a bigger problem coupled with the age ind injuries

it won't be easy, but it can be done.

its just not something i'm worried about nor do i think its something that will or should set the team back or delay progress much at all.

My findings...

The NFL salary cap last year was $120.37 million, this year $120.6 million. It's expected to stay pretty much the same and only make another similar small increase. Source: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d829ee5ba/article/stagnant-salary-cap-could-cause-carnage-in-nfl-next-season It's estimated next years cap will be $120.9 million.

The Panthers currently have $118 counting toward next years cap. Source: http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcsouth/post/_/id/33468/nfc-south-cap-woes-to-continue-in-2013

The Panthers currently have $4.0 million in cap space this year, that they can carry over into next. Source: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/11/01/current-cap-spac-nflpa-version/

So we'll be $6.9 million under the cap.

OK, the link stating we have $130 towards the cap is more recent, I'm guessing that one is taking into account some of the recent extensions and restructures. With $130 toward next years cap that means we'll be $5.1 million over, although for some reason Pat Y never gives exact figures ("just about $130 million" ??) so that's just a ballpark figure.

Gross... most overpaid and overvalued commodity on this team. It would be hard to argue that D-Will isnt given his role this year, but he still can ball, Gross is just getting abused.

Here's a good reference for contracts

While some stand out more than others, just about every non-rookie contract is bad and overpaid. I don't know who negotiates contracts for this team but good lord man.

For those looking for contract info here's my favorite site for it.

http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/carolina-panthers/

you can click on each player individually to see their cap figures. For some crazy reason they make you pay to see the contracts of those on I.R

They list the signing bonuses and the prorated amount that count against the cap each year.

Gross is a player who can really save us come cap room by restructuring. I think we'd be crazy to out right cut him at this point as we have no one near his ability on the roster to play left Tackle and I still think he's above average at the position.

Anyway he only has 1 million of signing bonus expected to hit the cap next year and has an overall figure of 11.7 million(total cap hit). Should be a an easy restructure that can get us much needed relief on the cap.

Things will get very interesting here in a couple of months.

All or nearly all the contract info is available to anyone online. It just takes patience to pick through it and a little research to figure out the impact on the cap should you cut or trade the player.

The Carolina Panthers already have $118 million committed toward the 2013 salary cap and that’s with only 42 players under contract. Only four teams have more cap room committed to 2013 than the Panthers; Philadelphia leads the league with $134 million committed to 45 players. And remember: The Panthers haven’t even drafted their 2012 rookies yet. Once they draft and sign those guys, they’ll be over the projected salary cap.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/07/30/per-team-spending-minimum-doesnt-apply-until-2013/

Remember, it’s not cap space but cash spent. So when a team like the Panthers gives defensive end Charles Johnson a $30 million signing bonus on a six-year deal, only $5 million counts against the cap — but $30 million counts against the league’s total spending requirement of $3.8 billion.
