SMH at this contract!

54 posts in this topic

I know it's well known about Stewarts deal being a killer towards our cap, but reading this and seeing every detail is just astonishing how fuggin dumb Hurney must of been, I mean every possible stipulation he could of put in to fug us he did lol, sooner we get these big contracts and dead money off our books the better our franchise will be, Gettleman says he walked into a good job, he walked into a mess, getting Stewart to restructure this offseason is a must, 15 games in two years doesn't deserve this contract.

When do the Panthers restructure or part ways with Jonathan Stewart?

It didn’t make sense for the Carolina Panthers to sign Jonathan Stewart to a five-year, $36.5 million contract extension (including $23 million guaranteed and worth a maximum of $41.5 million through salary escalators) in 2012 after paying DeAngelo Williams like a workhorse running back a year earlier. The structure of Stewart’s contract will prevent the Panthers from releasing him in 2014.

Stewart's contract appears to have been a big mistake.

Stewart has a $6.785 million option bonus due on the 10th day of the 2014 league year (March 20) to extend his contract an additional year so it runs through the 2017 season. There is an equivalent non-exercise fee due the following day if the Panthers don’t exercise their option for the extra year. Paying the option bonus or non-exercise fee will reduce Stewart’s fully guaranteed $8.285 million 2014 base salary (without an offset) to a fully guaranteed $1.5 million (without an offset). His 2014 cap number is $5,496,250 with exercise of the option. If Stewart is released before the option bonus is payable, the Panthers will have a 2014 cap charge (or dead money) of $18.185 million for him. The $18.185 million includes Stewart’s $8.285 million 2014 guaranteed base salary and $2.5 million 2015 base salary guarantee, which would accelerate onto Carolina’s 2014 cap upon release. Giving Stewart a post-June 1 designation would keep the $5.1 million of signing bonus proration associated with the remaining years of his deal from accelerating into 2014. The Panthers would have $13.085 million of dead money because of Stewart’s departure.

There would be a $7,996,250 2014 cap charge for Stewart if he is released after June 1 with exercise of the option primarily because of his base salary reduction. The Panthers would also have $10,188,750 of dead money for him in 2015. The dead money is usually the same if a player receives a post-June 1 designation or is released after June 1. The different amounts with Stewart are due to the option bonus and non-exercise fee.

Stewart has an $8,496,250 2015 cap number if the option is exercised. The Panthers will gain $2 million of cap room by releasing Stewart in 2015 with post-June 1 treatment (assumes the option was exercised). There would be $6,496,250 of 2015 dead money and $6,192,500 of dead money in 2016.

He will never be healthy again. Absolute high priced dead weight.

It only gets worse the next few years. There's virtually no chance he is going anywhere soon.

Unfortunately, he has millions upon millions of reasons not to retire.

To quote Gettleman, "Lord willing and the creek don't rise, two years [and we're out of this fugging cap hell that my dipsh!t predecessor put us in.]"

 

 

anything we win before then is pre-dynasty gravy.

    • http://www.alternet.org/grayzone-project/fbi-isis-garland-texas-shooting-undercover-agent The first attack on U.S. soil for which ISIS claimed responsibility—a 2015 shooting in Garland, Texas—was instigated by the FBI, according to an investigation by CBS' "60 Minutes" and government documents obtained by an attorney involved in the case. In a macabre twist, an undercover FBI agent who encouraged one of the shooters to "tear up Texas" was also physically present at the scene of the crime, mere feet away from the shooters. Prior to that, a separate informant was paid $132,000 by the FBI to pretend for three years to be friends with the future shooter. When the man found out his supposed friend had taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations on behalf of the intelligence agency, he withdrew from his religious community and eventually fell into online religious extremism. ...... On May 3, 2015, two Islamist extremist gunmen opened fire at an exhibit for cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas. The contest featured key figures in the Islamophobia industry, including anti-Muslim demagogue Pamela Geller and extreme-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. The intentionally provocative exhibit was swarming with security, including dozens of police officers, snipers and a SWAT team. The heavily armed attackers injured a security guard outside the building before they were themselves promptly shot by snipers and killed. ISIS soon after took credit for the shooting. There is no evidence that ISIS organized the attack, but the shooters had been independently radicalized and were inspired by the genocidal extremist group. In the two years since, the Garland shooting has been used to justify a vast array of anti-Muslim policies and measures. A new investigation by the investigation team at "60 Minutes," nevertheless, shows that the FBI was deeply implicated in the attack. ..... After the trial, Maynard was given 60 pages of declassified messages between an undercover FBI agent and one of the shooters, Elton Simpson. These documents showed that, less than three weeks before the attack, the FBI agent had told Simpson to "Tear up Texas." This "to me was an encouragement to Simpson," the attorney told "60 Minutes." The government denied that the text constituted incitement, but the FBI's involvement did not end there. "60 Minutes" reported that the U.S. government admitted in an affidavit that the undercover FBI agent also physically "traveled to Garland, Texas, and was present ... at the event." "I was shocked," Maynard told the news program. "I was shocked that the government hadn't turned this over. I wanted to know when did he get there, why was he there?" Documents the government gave to the attorney showed that the FBI agent had in fact been in a car behind the two shooters at the time of the attack. The undercover FBI agent even used his cell phone, several feet away, to film the building's security guard seconds before he was shot by the Islamist extremists. "It's stunning," Maynard told "60 Minutes." "The idea that he's right there 30 seconds before the attack happens is just incredible to me." ..... The undercover FBI agent fled the scene of the crime before being stopped at gunpoint and detained by Garland police. ..... Dabla Deng, the informant, pretended to be Simpson's friend for three years, "60 Minutes" reported. Deng taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations. When Simpson "found out that this guy was spying on him, and taping him and then finding out that the government was doing that, I think something clicked in him," recalled Usama Shami, president of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix. "And the mosque, we couldn't do anything." "He felt that the mosque had abandoned him?" Anderson Cooper asked. "Yes. And he felt that a lot of people had abandoned him. And that's why he stopped coming to the mosque," Shami said. After this, Simpson moved in with his friend Nadir Soofi, who "60 Minutes" noted "had just had a bitter break-up and the pizza parlor he owned was going out of business." The two alienated men drifted into extremist religious communities online, and were attracted by ISIS recruiters.
    • i actually took this test a year ago because i was talking to this girl who was a psych major and really invested in this test. then i was talking to this other girl who was also a psych major and she thought there wasn't much to it, she basically didn't have respect for it. if i took it today it'd probably line up the same. 
    •    There isn't a problem taking a tackle usually. The problem would be taking any of THESE OTs that high. If there was someone close to that, we would have risked so much on Kalil.
