Who wouold we cut today to give us cap room to sign anyone?
Some of the really ugly cuts need to wait until June 1 don't they?

I think ya'll are dreamimg if you think Canty is going to get signed anytime soon.

I think the new GM will start working on cap room for 2013 and more importantly 2014....soon. I don't expect him to slowly make room. I expect him to rip the band aid fast instead of pulling it off slowly. I think several guys not on the radar right now could be gone also. 2014 looks horrible as well....worse actually.

Canty is an older vet which means he likely sits out there for a bit

i remember reading in multiple places that panthers signed dwan edwards to a 2 year deal last year, meaning he isn't a FA. can anyone confirm? there was also a feature on him on panthers.com that spoke extensively of him building on last season.

Rotoworld says otherwise.

hmmm, rotoworld is generally on top of their stuff but they might have this one wrong. all i've got right now is the story on panthers.com posted today and my memory (for what little that's worth).

http://www.panthers....23-c6e3850315a5

"As I had time playing with some great guys like Ron (Edwards), Charles (Johnson) and Greg (Hardy), we definitely put something together," Edwards said. "And we should be able to going forward."




Best I can tell, his contract with Buffalo was due to finish at the end of this season, but he was cut and was a vested veteran, so the Panthers did not assume that contract when they signed him. perhaps rotoworld is going off that info, which is still listed on spotrac.com as his current contract (it's not). or perhaps i am remembering something totally imaginary and he's a FA.
