Gross restructured

176 posts in this topic

So since he was probably going to get cut next off season anyway, this deal basically saves 6 million this season and cost the team 4 million next season and then 900k for two more years. So the team basically breaks even and losses it's LT while Gross makes another 4.5 million in guaranteed money.

If he's cut next season it would accelerate the remaining bonus of $3.6 million + a $2 million option bonus from his previous deal. And like I said before he may or may not still have a roster bonus in 2014, and if so that would add another $1 million to the hit. Of course a June 1 cut is also an option and would split it up I believe $2.9 million (or 3.9 if the roster bonus is still applicable) in 2014 and $2.7 million in 2015. Since the deal is predominantly guaranteed, we'd only save the $1 million base by cutting him.

This is why I think keeping him for two years makes more sense. Waiting until 2015 would only cause a cap hit of $2.7 million, the same as cutting him post-June 1 next off-season.

The only problem with that is it looks like he wants to retire after this year. If that is the case, what does it mean for the cap?

"In Gettleman we Trust"

How many GM's in the league can rock the triple thick chinstrap shirt tucked into gym shorts with papers tucked into the waistband look? None I can think of.

Awesome... we were going to have to clear room just to sign our rookies and with 7 million we now have room to do that and find a few more bargains.

The deal auto voids after this year, so basically the Panther's saved 3.2 million on this years cap and took an additional 4.6 million hit on next years cap. Just moved the numbers from now to next year basically.

The 3.2 million saved number is from Reed, so that puts the Panthers at around 7 million available salary cap after the June 1st cut of Anderson goes through.

The Panther's actually lost money on this deal, considering it was a given that Gross would've been cut next year anyways. Under his old deal cutting him now would've saved more money and playing him this year then cutting him next year would've saved more money.

Another question, what happens if the none of the top three LT fall to Carolina this year... and they are out of range in next years draft for a good LT? The team isn't going to have the money to sign a decent-good one either year, so it just creates a huge hole on the OL that the team might not be able to fill cause they certainly don't have anyone that's currently on the team that can play it.

I was under the impression based on the details available that it automatically happens and he's a FA next off season no matter what. The last three years are dummy years.

I just don't buy it. I think there is either some misinformation or something we don't understand. Otherwise, that move makes no sense.
