Our Cap Isn't In Good Shape For 2013

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.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
