Panthers cut James Anderson

I assure you Jason Philips and (is he still signed) Jason Williams can ram into blockers to free up Luke just as easily as James Anderson did.

What was his cap hit this year?

Kalil told me we were going to win the superbowl last year

That totally would've happened if he didn't get hurt. Shame.

The cap savings breaks down like this. If this is a normal cut...

2013: 200K

2014: 5.4M

2015: 5.4M

As a June 1st cut...

2013: 3M

2014: 2.6M

2015: 5.4M

So either way 11M total

Makes a lot more sense for us to cut him now and get the help next year when we really need it.

Good work with cap stuff.

Anderson was pretty useless in 3-4 looks... just saying.

I bet he lands on Denver

They did just release DJ Williams, James would fit well in that D. No matter, he's not a difference maker. James is a nice linebacker but we don't need him, he's expendable.

Stupid move, rework the contract, not cut the contract! 2 years ago has most tackles for team, yeah last year injured but really?

Talent gone... We had a great LB Group but we are working on getting rid of that.

We will see, gonna be a terrible move when we only have 2 healthy LB's like we have for the last few years...

a restructure isn't always a magical solution to poor deals.

Anderson was JAG. JAG can rack up talent with poor talent around him. Anderson did. You need JAGs, they are important to winning....but only at JAG prices.

We have to spread the talent and resources on this team. I will take the 2 healthy linebackers if it means we can add some depth to the crew of castaways and cutouts we have in the secondary.

Good dude, nice linebacker, but we can't pay 4 guys at one position when only 3 can start.
