I'd rather pay 9.5 million and have Jon Beason than pay 8 million and not have Jon Beason.

Yup!

We're paying that signing bonus money no matter what we do since it's money we've already paid to Beason when he signed the contract, borrowed from the future via Marty McFly Hurney

"Beason: The logical scenario for him is a contract restructure to knock his cap figure down. Beason currently has a $9.5 million cap figure and $3.75 million of his $5.25 base salary for this year is guaranteed. Beason also has $12 million in outstanding pro-rated money. "

So if theres 12 million in prorated money that will hit the cap and we can spread it out over 2 years by cutting him after june 1st then we could save 3.5 this year against the cap. Then next year it would free up another 3.5 off the cap. Then we would be off the hook for the 11.75 and 9 million he'd count against the cap in 15 and 16 if I understand everything correctly.

Or using the same logic we could cut James Anderson http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/carolina-panthers/james-anderson/ and save 3.3 next year and 4.3 in cap space 2014 and be off the hook for his 15 cap hit of 5.4

If thats the case I'd rather cut Anderson and move Beason over to his spot next year.

Don't forget that $3.75 million left in guaranteed salary, so that would make it only $1.75 million in savings this year if we cut him June 1st cut.

Hurney really did screw us. He definitely help created a overplayed unachieving culture.

Say what you want about Hurney and his contracts and everything, but when Beason signed that deal, I don't recall many (if any) people on this board had anything but great things to say about it and saying he's worth every penny. At the time, for a top 3 MLB, it was not bad. Hindsight is always 20/20, and I understand if he gets released/traded, but we can't bitch about contracts that were perfectly fair at the time of their signing.

Nah.

I'm sick of the Carolina feel good Bull Shyt.

I'm ready for some New-England-Patriot-trade-Richard-Seymour-to-the-Raiders-for-a-first-round-pick-because-we-have-Vince-Wilfork-waiting-goodness.

I want to win and am tired of this re-sign Dan Morgan, keep John Fox, Everet browne will break out, one more year for Rivera krap.

When will the Carolina Panthers get serious?
