It just seems like the structure is much better for some other teams contracts.

We have tons of dead money out there if we cut certain guys.

And as for the overvaluing of the RB position....that ain't the only one....LB too.

i think that they are much better contracts there than here. pretty obvious, tbh.

we've pretty much sucked at it. for being so close to the cap year after year you'd think we'd have more to show for it.

here's hoping gettleman can get things right and get our priorities out of the 90's.

wouldn't be a bit surpised to see something like this being said about us before too long.


living proof of how much some people here over state the cap

one of the best times of the offseason every year is seeing every self proclaimed cap "expert" stunned when whatever horn they've been tooting for months is all of a sudden blown to pieces and they have no idea how it happened

"like zomg guys we can't cut a RB, Goodell will literally come and kidnap our cap and have relations with it and the mutant child that is birthed will be forced to be our new cap clearly you guys just don't understand how the cap works but I do because sheikh zulu told me how it did in that thread one time a couple years ago"

Restructure is not a magic wand. The problem doesn't disappear, we're just procrastinating and pushing it away a year or two.

I'm not gonna expect an automatic pipeline of players from NE York to Charlotte.

But as mentioned in the other thread, Gettleman would know more about these guys than anyone else. There'd be good reason to trust his judgment.

Would Michael Boley be an upgrade over James Anderson?

Also Canty would be an immediate improvement, but he got cut for being overpaid and injured. Do not need that here.

Canty is a good player and an instant starter, hope we could make room and pick him up

To be fair, that's the description people expected to apply to Thomas Davis this season.

As to Boley, I'm not the world's biggest Anderson fan, but if he's healthy (and retained) Jon Beason is probably the starter on the outside.

Pretty big 'if' on Beason though.
