Doesn't this give Beason leverage in not taking a pay cut?

Shouldn't we have done that first?

Either way, I don't have a problem with the move. What's it net us financially?

no. i think this if anything it's a sign that they either did or are near getting something done with beason. we can still cut beason and replace him with a true SAM for a lot cheaper and still be in better shape with the cap.

beason still has very little leverage here.

as far as the benefit to replacing him...depends on if a june 1 cut or not.

Meh I would rather have a down season and get rid of some of this bad money now. That way you can lock Cam up next offseason and focus on building around the future of Cam and Kuechly.....


Cam Newton has been a play away from being a winning team both his seasons. He is on the verge and so is this team.

Future is now....we can win now.

I feel that there are two things that had an extreme negative impact on Hurney!

Going into 2005 NFC Champ game without a viable running back and Peppers just walking away! He began overcompensating for these two instances and I'm glad we have someone without that scarring to clean up this mess! Solid move! Can't wait to see his whole body of work!

But you can't extend Cam next year without cutting bad money. Anderson's contract was bad money. DeAngelo's contract is bad money....there's money on this team that has to be dealt with in order to keep the true future of our team.

This cut was all about next year. It isn't a June 1st cut. The Panthers are saving only 200K this year, but next year they save a lot. My guess is this cut was more about not wanting James Anderson and wanting to move into a new direction.

well I agree we need to rid ourselves of bad deals like Williams, Godfrey's next year etc. GM just has to do general housecleaning b/c both years we are pressed.

Keep in mind, Joe Flacco just landed the largest deal in NFL history for a QB. His cap hit for 2013 is only around 7 million with that contract....realistcally, Cam could get a deal that wouldn't be that tough to deal with in normal situations.

Makes sense, he wasn't all that great and cost a lot of money while we have good backups already.



I cant see where this cut really saved us that much money.We only saved 200K....I dont understand this move
