A pay cut would be much more preferential. Highly doubt that happens.

I believe last year we had a kill date in his contract where we could have walked away not owing him anything more, but we didn't know what Keek was like before and it passed the date when all was too late.

According to Steve Reed: With the bonus proration there is no way to restructure in a way that will save cap dollars...cutting him will negatively affect the cap as well.

Gettlemen is prepping the stage for a complete roster gut if need be....

Beason will play this year as is....he won't make him part of the big picture. Beason has already recieved a comical amount of money for almost nothing....can't give him more guaranteed

How many damn times do people need to ask about Beason restructuring? His contract is very, very difficult to do anything with. You can't cut him, you can't trade him and you can't restructure him.

NO PLAYER TAKES LESS MONEY TO HELP THE TEAM OUT!

The only way you see guys taking less money is because they don't want to get cut and the money the present teams wants to cut them to is at least market value. The player is going to get less money. It's either with his present team via a paycut or with another team who will pay him his market value. That number is the same.

We owe Beason over 16 million bucks towards the cap. Do you want to give Beason even more money and add years to his contract. So instead of having owing him 16 million we'll owe him 20, only spread out over 6 years instead of 4. Just so we could save a few million on this years cap. Makes no sense what so ever.

We'd only save 1.5 million this year if we cut him as a June 1st cut. And next year it's easier to make him a June 1st cut when the dead money will be a lot less than if we cut him this year.

I swear I want to punch the screen every time someone suggests we restructure Beason or someone talks about him doing the right thing for the team. Jesus Christ, where's the tylenol.

In theory, you could do what we did with both Kalil and Olsen: cut the base down (they cut to $750k), convert it to a signing bonus, and prorate the bonus hits over the years of the contract. That would mean cutting his base from $5.25m to say, $750k, and converting the remaining $4.5m to a signing bonus ($1.125m per year).

That would cut this year's cap hit of $9.5m down to $5.375m (savings of $4.125m), so he'd help out the team without losing a penny. Highly doubt he says no to that, but that would also add $1.125m onto the future years of his deal, and his hit the next two years is actually bigger than this year's as it is.

I agree, just saying it's possible. Frankly, I don't think we've ruled out cutting/trading him after June 1. But I have no basis for thinking that, it's just my opinion.

As has been restated many times...
Unleas beason takes a paycut (high.unlikely IMO).....
The panthers will gain nothing.by restructuring beason.

Beason is safe from being traded, cut or restructured this year but if he wants to remain a Panther, he'll have to restructure his contract eventually. Same goes for Johnson. They can't expect to stay in Carolina and get grossly overpaid.

I hope so along with Dwill. We're a couple players (NT, WR, FS, RG) and consistency away from being a contender.

Well, I think Beason earned his contract but he's been injured for two years in a row. However, if Jon amasses 125 tackles, 3 sacks and 2 interceptions, then all that contract talk will quiet down somewhat.

I think that we probably over paid CJ by a few milion a year when we did his contract. But, we were scared that he would bolt for Atlanta (I think he would have if the money were the same).

We made him an offer that he could not refuse and that even surprised him.

I seem to remember Jon being injured at the time we gave him that huge contract. Hindsight is 20/20 but I have to think the Panthers "overlooked" what they thought to be minor injuries or ignored some warning signs. On the other hand Jerry was paying players for past greatness and after all the lockout stuff.

Not contributing the better part of two seasons and being replaced at his position as well. Something about his contract must make restructuring difficult. On pure concept, Beason more than Gross should have been getting flack about a pay cut.

A few of Marty's bad deals we are just going to have to eat. The good news is this: Beason is a pro-bowl LB and if he returns to form, we have 3 studs and a pretty awesome reserve in Chase Blackburm. If we address the DT spot, the front seven is the best in football. Period.
