Outlining potential cap savings

Joe Person takes a look at some of the options and what their impact would be.

Charlotte Observer: Potential Cap Casualties

Gamble, Nakamura and Ron Edwards seem likely targets looking at this analysis. DeAngelo is debatable. And oddly enough, Armanti Edwards is listed (though the savings is relatively small).

At this point I think people are so eager to get rid of Armanti that Joe is playing to the crowd a little. But we could save a couple hundred thousand by cutting him, maybe. I agree Ron Edwards, Gamble, and Nakamura are obvious moves. I think you restructure or cut Jordan Gross after the draft if you can get an Eric Fisher or Luke Joeckel(unlikely). Maybe you cut Deangelo as a June 1st but he played well. I'm not huge on cutting productive players.

We are going to lose some guys that can still play. We will downgrade at some positions. This is our reality for overpaying talented but not elite players. We just have to believe that Gettleman can find cheaper guys that will produce at a similar or higher level. Gamble didn't produce at his contract last year, neither did Beason, nor our Running Backs, nor Gross. We need some overachievers like Hardy.

we need to find 3 starters in this draft. not easy at all, but that would help a lot. Unfortunately, we won't really

know if they are really good enough until it's too late.

If you want corn in the fall, you gotta plant corn in the spring.

There has to be a lot of blood letting now so that Hardy, then Cam, then Luke can get what they need to stay on this team.

This is about now AND the future. Let's hope Gettleman is the man for the job.

The next 4 to 5 years should be really interesting.

Had not seen James Anderson's name come up yet. I doubt we cut him.

Armanti may as well finish his contract.

I'd rather keep Garry Williams. Yeah you save $1 million but then after you pay the guy to replace his roster spot it's really not that much. He played well as a backup, I'd rather have the depth than the $300-$400K in cap savings.

James Anderson, Nakamura, Dwill, Ron Edwards, AE, I'd be OK with cutting all of them.

Beason is the tough one.Restructure sounds great to the fan base, but not to him.

He is a big time Leader in the Locker room, but will now play out of his best position.

This one could hurt the most. Tough to trade him with his cap hit.

Beason basically said on the radio he wants to earn the money he is making now. He feels he is worth every penny and will show it on the field.

letting Gamble, Edwards and Nakamura go will help us tremendously.

still won't have much for FA's, but we'll be ok with the cap.

The hard part is finding the right replacements, while trying to fill the obvious holes we have.

We have to address DT and CB immediately.

We really need OL and WR help for the long term.

Then he should have no problem with an incentive restructure.

If we save $100 by cutting Armanti, please cut him.
