Kalil Restructures: saves 2.2 mil

85 posts in this topic

Still a lot of space needed. still close to 7 million over cap and we also need a extra 12 million for free agency, rookie signings and some space during the season for injuries. Johnson needs to restructure.

Depending on what happens, I think we could be around 5 mill under in the near future

If Person's numbers are correct, cutting Gamble would now get the Panthers under the cap (though not by much)

Making monetary sense of Panthers' moves

Not quite. Although Gamble has a cap hit of 10.9 mil, we'd only save about 9 mil by cutting him I believe. I could be wrong, but I believe he still gets his signing bonus as it is fully guaranteed.

We're nearly there though!

I took a peek at Johnson's contract and it may be the ugliest of them all.

He has 32 mil guaranteed. His signing bonus and other bonuses equal 6.25 mil a year in 2013, 2014 and 2015. What's worse, his salary goes from 6.75, 8.75 and 9.75 respectively, whcih equals a 13, 15 and 16 mil cap hit. We can't threaten to cut him or else we take a 19 million cap hit. We obviously can't trade him (even though we need him, at least having these over his head is leverage) In fact, he wanted to leave to ATL, but the only reason he stayed was because of this fat paycheck.

In other words he's got us by the balls and will have no incentive to take a lesser cut.
