"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.

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.

I guess we'll see what happens...

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.

He takes up the 10th most cap space this year.....4.4 mill is too much for your 4th or 5th best LB in a 4-3.

He is overpaid and overpaying guys is why we have holes and no cap space. JA is an example of why we aren't a good team. So is Godfrey's deal. The RB's deals. Etc

How is your 4th or 5th best LB in a 4-3 who takes up one of the top 10 cap space figures......very affordable?

Overpaid

Anderson is a starter who is worth keeping. At this point I trust him more than Beason and Davis. He has stayed healthy and productive whereas Beason and Davis have had their issues. I don't know if we restructure or keep things as they are. But cutting him to save 2 million when you could keep him and save close to that in a restructure makes little sense. Not all restructures are the same so it isn't just giving money early but changing the terms. Making sure you don't have a ton of guaranteed or dead cap salary going forward.

I trust him more than those 2 as well....

But he was still overpaid. He does represent that theme and trend that Hurney displayed....and it has cost us.

Our roster is full of talented guys worth keeping....a shame they weren't all signed to slightly smaller deals. Overpaying so many adds up

Anderson is overpaid?

I've got news for you. Every player is overpaid.

Anderson is a value for as good of a lb he is.

Can't ship out talent and expect to improve.
