Is no one else willing to restructure?

I'm just having a hard time understanding, why we haven't tried to approach Deangelo, Godfrey, or Beason to restructure for us to have some cap space.

Beason, Gross, and DWill need to restructure for us to see significant room be made.

Godfrey will probably be cut next year since his most of his cap hit is from next year on, beason and gross are probably working on restructuring now and idk about deangelo

If they aren't working on restructuring Beason and Gross (maybe Deangelo too but I just think it's time to move on there) then I will have lost ALL faith in Gettlemen.

I'd love to keep both of them, but not at their current numbers, which begs the question as to why something wasn't finalized (restructure or releasing them) before the start of FA so that we could have at least gone after a few above average players

I feel like this has been several times, or maybe I'm misunderstanding, but- cap doesn't matter again until some later date closer to training camp time or possibly later, correct? So restructuring now, or later doesn't make a difference... And FA isn't over, we can still go after "a few above average players"

Beason, Gross, Williams. All need to restructure. Gross is willing, The rest should follow suit.

Who says Beason is interested in restructuring? And we've approached Gross already about trying to re-work (in nicer terms; in reality, trying to get him to accept a paycut) his contract.

If Gross was willing then he already would have.. They tried to get him to take a pay cut and he didn't do it.

The Panthers have asked LT Jordan Gross to restructure his contract.

The report indicates Carolina wants Gross to take a pay cut, as opposed to converting salary into a bonus. Gross' 2013 cap number is $11.7 million, and the Panthers are currently $4 million under the cap. "The Panthers and I are trying to work out the best solution to help this team move forward," Gross said Saturday. Mar 9 - 9:24 PM

Then you cut him

I'm love Beason as much as anyone else, but coming off the injuries, he just isn't worth the risk going into the season for what he's getting paid, not when we're in our current cap situation.

Look at how the best teams operate every year, if you're not worth the money you're being paid, you get shown the door. Can't get sentimental about every player if you want to win a championship

The reality is that Beason is no longer the MLB or leader of his defense and is coming off an injury which came off another serious injury. Yet he's being paid and we're taking the cap hit as if he still is those things without the injury risk.
