One Year Deals

Recommended Posts

How should we perceive these 1 year deals? Is Gettlemen scared to make any long term commitments to a player that may not pan out? Is Gettlemen not conviced about Rivera but is going to give him what he needs to be successful this year? Is this some ultimatum from JR to not give out any crazy Hurney type contracts? If Carolina does well and gets to the playoffs, they will be looking at one hell of a long free agent list. If the chemistry worked and got you to the playoffs your looking at having to resign these players who played well for 1 year and will likely want more money now that they proved their worth. Its going to be very interesting. What do you think?

The one year deals are not given to star players, more role players. If the team does well both parties will want to continue the relationship. If not they are gone

Every team in the league is shelling out one year deals. Especially to players they don't expect to be core players.

1 year deals are the new norm.

Perform and get more money, otherwise, gtfo

This and pennypenching. We don't have much money to use.

A one year deal right now makes the most sense for a number of reasons:

1. Next years salary cap might be in worse shape than 2013's cap for us. Signing players to 1 year deals allows us to pick and choose next year who will be worth the further investment

2. We are not taking chances on having any more "dead money" accured on our books. The fact that we are still paying players who are no longer on the team. I remember a point in 2010 when Hurney had $30 million tied up in “dead money’’.
