Just replied to my Twitter ? asking if he was including rollover:
Joe Person @josephperson
@UNCrules2187 @spotrac they're off on Thomas Davis' numbers. He had playing-time incentives that kicked in.
Still, according to carpanfan96, TD's incentive was only $500k, not $3.5m... :/
He might have had more then I knew of, which is completely possible since I don't work for the Panthers. I know he had play time incentives and option bonuses and such built into his contract. He's basically still making the same amount he was before his restructure, it's just done completely different now
Just a note though, that Sport trac website is off on quite a few contracts just from glancing through it. Nothing major, but 100k here, 500k there and it adds up quick..
If you remove the extra 500k bump I put into my numbers, then I've got the panther's at 3.548 over the cap. I actually might have added to much into my bump up for incentives for players on the team.
So 3.548 seems about right and I'd suspect that's about what Person has the team at right now.
