When will the Panthers have money again?

Recommended Posts

Serious question.

I have watched football my whole life, but I have never really quite grasped the salary caps and spendings ordeal.

So the question is, when are the Panthers going to be able to open up the wallet again? Will we have more money next year?

I believe the cap to be just as tight, if not tighter next year than this. However Gettleman is looking to the future for cap relief and planning ahead so I would hope it'll get better.. Cap goes up next year too

The team's already done a lot for next year with a few of the restructures and cuts. If Dwill survives this season, he'll be cut next off season for sure as a June 1st cut saving the team around 6 million or so. The team can also cut Beason much more effectively next off season as well. Also will be easier to cut Godfrey next season as well. Team as more options on the table to save money next season but started off in worse shape though.

However most of that money will go towards Cam Newton and Greg Hardy's contract if they both get long term deals.

If Hardy has another major year, he's most likely not coming back. Can't put up 30+ million a season for just Cam and Hardy when you've already got other guys making pretty big bucks in Stewart, Kalil, Olsen and Johnson for the next few years also.

yep. year after that will be even better cause most bad contracts should be gone and tv deal should kick in so expanded cap room will be made.

Patience young grasshopper. Panther fans were spoiled by the NFC championship in year 2 and the Superbowl run in 2003. There are teams that haven't even done that yet. Be thankful for what Carolina has accomplished. This isn't going to happen overnight and signing a bunch of overpaid free agents is not the answer. Carolina has had some bad luck with draft picks over the years and have had to endure a GM that was under qualified. In Summary....

It's A Process. :)

It seems like some teams don't rebuild though, they just reload
