Everyone keeps forgetting that you only count the top 53 contracts during the offseason when determining the salary cap.


It's 51 not 53.

I would imagine the new GM is sorting through about 20 slightly different ways to "fix" this mess.

I bet currently the focus is on dealing with agents and once they know who they can restruture and have addressed.....heads then roll. Serves no real purpose to cut him today.

The Panthers have $136 million in contracts but only $131 million against the cap. That doesn't include the rollover from this year. At least I don't think it does. My calculations were that with the rollover the Panthers are at about $127 million.

And it is now being reported the cap will be closer to $121.5 million.


Media keeps relying on the $136M number

What worries me most is that the Panthers are about $15 million over the 2013 projected salary cap,

No reason to cut anyone until the plan is figured out. I don't think you can uncut someone.

yep. you don't cut anyone until you have a better option.

it's like quitting your job before you've gone out to find a better one. it just puts you behind the 8 ball and limits viable options.

Well, at least we aren't the only team in cap trouble....

10 Ravens account for $69M in 2013 cap space. And that doesn't acct for Flacco, Reed, Ellerbe, Kruger, Dickson, Pitta

Well, they really timed that win well then. Apparently Bolden is willing to extend to lower his cap number otherwise they'd have to cut him.

Boldin also said he will retire if he is cut.

What you are describing above would be a definite violation of the cap. Not maybe. Definite.

If it was that easy to get around the cap, every club would be doing it.


That is exactly what I said, that it isn't allowed. Hence it not being against the salary cap.

yep. there's no way that would be allowed. huge violation. the team would get into a poo ton of trouble. you can not give players anything beyond what is stated in the contract.


I never said it would be allowed. I'm merely giving an example. The guy said paying for gas money affects the salary cap. It absolutely does not. Outside of the fact that no owner would bother to report that to the NFL, it doesn't go against the cap because it isn't in the contract.

What he was initial talking about was salary cap but that long article he posted was referring to team salary. Stuff like that affects that, I guess. But not salary cap.

I wasn't saying that was allowed. I was giving reasons as to why it isn't allowed. Anything paid to a player outside of the contract or special things like retirement and such do not go against the cap.
