ESPN's Pat Yasinskas believes the Panthers will "almost have to cut" LCB Chris Gamble this offseason.

lol I almost started texting people about this, glad I read the thread first.

as much as cutting our best corner sounds absurd, it's worth noting that our defense rose to a top ten squad after his injury. he's an asset but we are by no means hamstrung without him. cutting him might actually be a legitimately wise move, as much as logic seems to scream the opposite.

Thread title aside, I think this is a no-brainer.

the thing is that our team really doesn't have the depth for this kind of philosophy

Not a fan of cutting Gamble

The only person I want gone to help the cap is Gross and D.Will

And any other useless player

Gamble turns 30 in March and has some good years left but he makes too much damn money. We have to cut his ass.

We save 7.9 million by cutting Gamble, what would we save cutting those two?

DWill's 2013 cap number is 4.75 million, there would be a massive cap hit if the signing bonus all went to next year:

7/29/2011: Signed a five-year, $43 million contract. The deal contains $21 million guaranteed, including a $16 million signing bonus and $5 million of Williams' second-year base salary. 2012: $5.25 million, 2013: $4.75 million, 2014: $5.75 million, 2015: $6.75 million, 2016: Free Agent

Gross, I dont know what's guaranteed..

2/19/2009: Signed a six-year, $60 million contract. The deal included a $5 million signing bonus. 2012: $8.5 million, 2013: $8.7 million, 2014: $6.7 million (+ $1 million roster bonus), 2015: Free Agent

Then there's Stewart's contract:

8/11/2012: Signed a six-year, $37.811 million contract. The deal contains $22.5 million guaranteed, including a $9 million signing bonus. Another $6 million is available through incentives based on 1,200-yard rushing seasons and 1,600 all-purpose yard seasons. 2012: $811,250, 2013: $1 million, 2014: $1.5 million (+ $9 million option bonus), 2015: $4.25 million, 2016: $5 million, 2017: $5.5 million, 2018: Free Agent

Better players have been cap casualties. Go for it.

Why not?

Did our CB's get toasted repeatedly the 2nd half of the year (Norman excluded). How much more could Chris have done than Thomas?

I'm not saying Chris isn't good, because he is, but we have to make some decisions this offseason to get our cap in order, and Chris is definitely low hanging fruit.

Im not sure about cap

I'm going purely off production

Only issue about Gross is our o-line is already terrible
