I dont get why everyone wants to cut Anderson...

he is an example of what has been wrong.

We pay him to be X when he really is just Y. We could bring in a Y and pay him to be a Y.

People say cut Gamble and D-Lo because it's the popular thing to say, but if we can get under the cap with them restructuring, then I say keep the both of them.

That is Hurney magic.....it isn't about just getting under the cap to operate.

It is about paying the right guys and not overpaying.

People don't say to cut Williams b/c it is popular...they say it b/c it makes no sense to spend what we are for runners on a Cam Newton lead team.

Because he sucks player. He will not take a block head on...refuses to...hurts the rest of our guys in run D. If you are going to play Sam, you have to be willing to sacrifice yourself on strongside runs, he won't which is why we were better when Phillips was starting.

my thinking is that it's a choice between a restructured beason or a restructured anderson, because there's no way we go into the future with either one of those guys at their existing deals. we can't afford to keep both, either.

beason > anderson. we find a way to keep beason here and let anderson go. also cutting anderson will cost less than cutting beason.

"James Anderson is signed for 5 years / $22 million with the Carolina Panthers. He is making $2.90 million in 2013." per: www.spotrac.com/nfl/carolina-panthers/james-anderson/ I think that this is pretty reasonable for a LB of his caliber.

According to

www.spotrac.com/nfl/carolina-panthers/james-anderson/

You +1'd this publicly. UndoJames Anderson is signed for 5 years / $22 million with the Carolina Panthers. He is making $2.90 million in 2013. To be backup to Beason, Kuechly, Davis...I think it's a good deal. What are other backups of his caliber making.

Phillips is not as good as Anderson in the overrall position. I take Anderson over Phillips, but I hope that we can keep them both as backups. Beason should be willing to restructure and with the possibility of reinjury to Beason and Davis, we need Anderson.

his cap hit is $4.4mil. if he was cut it would cost $4.2mil (divided between two years).

beason's cap hit is $9.5mil, but it would cost $12mil to cut him (again, divided between two years).

we can't afford to keep him and beason around. there's really no need to do that. anderson would be cheaper to unload. beason's a much better player and more important as a leader than anderson. beason's more than likley going to be redoing his contract to make it less of a cap hit and it will be more in line with what a MLB whose missed two years of play would be getting from anywhere else. i doubt that even if he redoes his deal that there's enough cap space to keep both around.

the 2mil we'd save from cutting him this year and next might not seem like a lot, but in the big picture it really helps.

Ya don't cut Anderson.

Possibly trade him for a player of need.

If not, keep him. His cost is very affordable.

That 2mil is almost enough to allow you to upgrade either RG or S. Hell, you could probably get a good TE for that money. I'm thinking 2.5 mil should be right around the asking price this year.

If Beast redoes his deal and lowers his cap hit by close to 5mil, (Which I feel is only fair considering what he has made to not play.) that alone can bring in two upgrades.

Once we get back to even witht he cap, we should be able to upgrade enough through FA to allow us to draft how we want. Been a while since that was true.

The big question becomes. Can we actually get the guys we want in FA to come here for what we can pay? This is going to get interesting, at least it feels like it is headed that way.

if we were the only one in a lot of cap trouble it might be a problem, but the truth is that quite a few teams are in just as much trouble and are looking at limited cap space and will be able to do nothing more than sign players to affordable 1-2 year deals.

also quite a few players will be hitting the market because of those cap issues, and i mean quality players and if they want jobs, they'll have to resort to taking those affordable and short term contracts.

it's a buyers market this year which sucks for FA players because the buyers don't have much cap space to work with. as needy as teams are, the players are needier.
