http://espn.go.com/b...e-cap-situation

Whoever ends up as the new general manager is going to have his hands tied in a lot of ways, because most of those contracts include so much guaranteed in base salaries and so much pro-rated money that it’s difficult, if not impossible, to get out from under some of the team’s biggest contracts by releasing players.

The Panthers would lose cap space if they released Smith, Stewart or Godfrey. They’d basically break even on Anderson.

Beason and Williams could be candidates for release, but only if the Panthers designated them as June 1 cuts and spread their cap hit over two years, instead of one.

The Panthers currently have $136 million committed toward a 2013 salary cap that is expected to be slightly more than $120 million. Let’s look at some guys who could be on the cap bubble.


*sigh* :(

"Isn't in good shape" is an understatement.

The new GM needs a good cap guy.

It'll actually end up being lower then 136, more likely around 132. Restructure Beason and Gross - Will save around 7-9 Million combined. Cut Gamble, Nak and Edwards and that saves the team another 12 million and puts the team under the cap.

Yeah, Hurney left us in pretty bad shape. I do not understand what he was thinking with some of those deals. He really showed his inability, that or he knew his tenure was closing.

It was funny when so many people celebrated when we signed our core players to big deals, and now those same people are forced to understand how dumb some of those decisions were.

There will be a way, and a lot of people won't like it.

I think "nightmare cap situation" is the phrase Yas used.

Also we have some cap money from this year that will move to next year. I think it was around 6 million.

Cutting Gamble sucks, but the rest we can deal with I think.

cut someone who's performed as one of the best corners in the league the last two years

the ideal scenario
