here's the problem with the conflicting TD numbers...

The Panthers chose not to exercise an $8 million option bonus that was due this week. The bonus was put in as a safeguard when Davis signed a new contract last summer. He suffered his third injury early last season.

Davis’ cap figure for 2012 is now a comfortable $2.1 million. In addition to not getting the bonus, Davis took a cut in base salary from $2.25 million to $700,000 for this season.

But Davis can recoup some of the money later in the contract that runs through 2015. He has a $500,000 option bonus in 2013, and a $2.5 million second option in 2014. His new base salaries rise steadily each season. If he’s still with the team in 2015, his base salary will be $7.25 million.

here's what spotrac has for his cap numbers

2013

Base Salary $2,000,000

S. Bonus $1,400,000

Misc. Bonus $866,666

Cap Hit $4,266,666

and now overthecap

2013

Base Salary: $1,500,000

Prorated Bonus: $1,566,666

Roster Bonus: $2,812,500

Workout Bonus: $500,000

Other Bonus: $450,000

Cap Number: $6,829,166

Dead Money: $4,699,998

Cap Savings: $2,129,168

what's interesting is that overthecap doesn't have that roster bonus for any other year. according to Yas, TD waived that roster bonus. now was it for just last year, or all together? that's the issue.

the way it looks to me is that the roster bonus was waived altogether and overthecap and person may be overlooking that.

This is what I was telling you earlier Joe Person is a moron.... lol I would just wait until the team releases the official cap.

I'm taking it all with a grain of salt at this point. I'm sceptic of any number that's not from an official with the team but I have a feeling we are close to cap now.

When his deal was re worked the last time, his 8 million option bonus was split into three option bonuses due the next three seasons. 500k in 2013, 2.5 million in 2014 and finally 5 million in 2015.. The rest of his money was put behind incentives based on playing time.
