Panther deals
Greg Olsen 4 yrs/ 24 million (10 guaranteed)...ended up being a steal when compared to other TE'S contracts.

Jon Beason 5 yrs/50 millon (25 guaranteed)...fug fug fug,I swear I was in the minority with being unhappy with the deal at the time...go bump an old thread if you don't believe me. Anyway not even the skeptics could have predicted Luke would be drafted 2 years later and Beason would look grossly overpaid to this extent that he does now.

Charles Johnson 6 yrs/76 million(32 guaranteed)..he was the premier 4-3 DE that year and the only comparison would be to look at Hali's deal since he's a 3-4 pass rusher.

Deangelo Williams 5 yrs./43 million(21 guaranteed)...No positive spin here. I love D-Will I Really do but he got us here.

James Anderson 5 yr/ 22 million(8.5 guaranteed)..The guarantee was low enough to where we could cut him without much pain as we did this year

Charles Godfrey 5 yrs./ 27.5 million(12.4 guaranteed)...annual average of 4.5 per year and totally blown out of proportion on being such a terrible deal. See Michael Huff for comparison. Or just look at the crazy deals above average FS's in their 20's have signed the last 3 years.

Olindo Mare 4 yrs/12 million...Almost forgot this one...his agent deserves a raise.

Thomas Davis-can't find the original deal...its been tinkered with a ton and just went up thanks his incentives he reached last year.


More disdain for JR's 09-11 takeover.
The most glaring thing aside from the obvious(way too much guarantees) is why did we allow all these guy's to become free agents in the same year? Oh thats right somebody was prepping for a lockout. That same somebody had a chip on his shoulder and wanted to make a point to show the world he was not cheap. 09-11 were very uncharacteristic of Hurney.

Hurney has let people walk in the past such as Witherspoon, Mushin Muhammed, Doug Evans,Ricky Manning Jr.,Richard Marshall, Chris Draft and I am sure there's others but you get the point.(for those that don't I am saying JR played a heavy heavy hand in 2011, really from 2009-2011)

To say he has never brought in outside free agents before is b.s too. Delhomme, Stephen Davis, Ken Lucas, Mike Whale,Brandon Short, Ricky Prohel,Al Wallace, Mark Fields, Marlon Mcree, Keyshawn, brought Moose back, etc.

Then you'll notice in 09 we basically went on a spending freeze for 2 years.We kept a lame duck head coach in 2010, should have been lame duck GM( or was he spared for his loyalty?)

Before anyone try's to claim this is a Hurney apoligist thread or whatever there's plenty of other poo to blame solely on him such as; Jeff Otah,Jimmy Clausen,Everette Brown, Armanti Edwards, every 2nd round pick he's ever made(with possible exception of Amini). Ron Rivera(so far). Then of course the F.A. bust like D.J Hackett, Travis Claridge, Doug Brzinski,etc.


Sample of the rest of the NFL to at least show we weren't the only idiots.

Consider this some perspective to show you we were not the only ass clowns that year courtesy of walter football.

I put the guaranteed money in parentheses if he had them listed, otherwise you'll have to research it on your own if you care to know for each individual.

http://walterfootbal...ts2011recap.php

Tamba Hali 5 yrs/ 60 million(35 million guaranteed)- Chiefs...Not saying its a terrible contract as he produces but in comparison its actually worse than CJ's deal because its the same annual average on a year shorter term with more guaranteed making it harder to cut/restructure him at any point that it is for to do the same on CJ's deal.

David Harris 4 yrs/ 36 million (29.5 guaranteed)- Jets, lots of guaranteed $$$ for a player like him.

Larry Fitzgerald 8 yrs/ 120 million(47 guaranteed)-Cardinals...don't get me wrong Fitz is a beast but 15 million a year for a WR that you can't even properly utilize cuz you have no QB, I mean damn. They had to do it tho.

Kamerion Wimbley 5 yrs/ 48 million (29 guaranteed)- Raiders..cut 1 year later..ouch!

Michael Konenen 6 yrs,/19.5 million(6.5 guaranteed)-Bucs and yes the freaking punter

Michael Huff 4 yrs./32 million- Raiders(12 million guaranteed)

Zach Miler 5 yr/34 million(17 guaranteed)

Marcedes Lewis 5 yrs/35 million(18 guaranteed) Jags

Tavaris Jackson 2 yrs/8 million-Seahawks

Quinten Mikell 4 yrs/ 27 Million- Rams....

Santana Moss 3 yrs/ 15 million- Redskins

Jeromey Clary 4 yrs/ 20 million- Chargers

Paul Poslunzy 6 yrs/42 million(15 millon guaranteed)- Jags

Doug Free 4 yrs/32 million (17 guaranteed) - Cowboys

Barry Coefield 6 yrs/36 million (12. guaranteed) Redskins

Santonio Holmes 5 yrs/50 million(24 million guaranteed)- Jets

Davin Joseph 7 yrs/ 53 million -Bucs...Yes he's goot but he still plays RG.

Ray Edwards 5 yrs/ 30 million -Falcons

Nnamdi Aso 5 yr/ 60 million (20 guaranteed) Eagles

Steve Breaston 5 yrs/ 25 millon(9.5 guaranteed)- Chiefs

Cullen Jenkins 5 yrs/ 25 million


Here's other happy thoughts on why after 2014 we'll be back to normal. http://www.catscratchreader.com/2013/3/18/4118964/reasons-not-to-sweat-the-panthers-2015-salary-cap

If it makes you feel any better the Saints have 105 commited to 2015. http://overthecap.co...aints&Year=2015

Also the Bucs have 79 commited to only 12 players. http://overthecap.co...neers&Year=2015

and as the article suggest if any only CJ will still be on the team then, so there's numbers aren't real.

The Saints are getting raped by Brees' contract. Other than that their deals don't look too horrible. The big name day 1 signings the Bucs have gone after this year and last look pretty laughable on their list.

For the Panthers, Cam Newton isn't even one of those 19 players listed, so add another huge chunk if/when we give him a big extension. And yeah I know you can cut guys to create cap space but then you're creating holes and having to deal with dead money hits. I just don't see why you would put yourself in that situation to begin with. Poor money management.

The only people getting paid the huge contracts now should be premiere QBs.
See Peyton, Flacco, and what Rodgers is about to get.
Hell Brady even took less in an effort to get another Lombardi.
Everyone else is tradable or can be replaced.
In a couple years Cam is going to be pushing 20 million and taking up ~15% of our cap.
Getts hopefully will get us in position to do that and only pay what is cap friendly everywhere else.
It's how you win in today's NFL going forward.
See the NY Football Giants.

No Brady really didn't.


Here's his new deal per Rotoworld:

2/25/2013: Signed a five-year, $60 million contract. The deal is fully guaranteed, including a $3 million signing bonus. 2013: $1 million (+ $10 million "signing" bonus), 2014: $2 million (+ $15 million in "signing" bonus payments), 2015: $7 million (+ $5 million "signing" bonus), 2016: $8 million, 2017: $9 million, 2018: Free Agent


You think we're going to get Cam for 5yr/60mill?
