Does anyone find it strange it took this long or was there a purpose behind it?



My thinking it was purely for negotiation purposes. Everyone Carolina dealt with(agents) knew how much cap money we had. So saying hey we only have this much, we are offering all we have helped. Then after getting as much leverage as we could, negotiated more cap space to deal with whatever potential free agents still left on the market after all the other teams overpaid. It's like going shopping the day after Christmas!!!

Or it could be Gross just decided to make the offer to restructure after looking at how the market was shaping.

Either way win win I think.

Well, you wouldn't want to flash cap space money around while you made the moves Gettleman made up to this point...now you make the room to dpend some on a bigger impact player

Definitely opens room to sign draft picks!!! Gross clearly wants to help the team win now by accepting that...or else he might have been cut.

Knew he'd restructure. He's always been a team player.
That didn't stop the majority predicting otherwise.

Back to the news, sounds like Gross got an extension.

Gantt says it gives gross the option to void the final year of his deal rather than actually just voids it all together.

If we cut williams, we will save additional $3 or $4 million. We can also sign 2-3 decent FAs.

@SteveReedAP
BREAKING: Panthers OT Jordan Gross has agreed to a restructured contract. Base salary reduced from $8.7M to $1M in '13, $6.7M to $1M in '14.



@SteveReedAP4m
I'm not sure at this point if years were added on to the contract, but that would make sense. Hope to know more soon.


That'll help.
