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

35 posts in this topic

pretty much this and the cap can be managed and fixed or at least worked around fairly easily. its a mess for sure, but its not the big concern people make it out to be.

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.

which would be weird since JR doesn't own that anymore.
