Yes this happens every off season. It appears we don't much cap room, and then restructures free up more room.

it's going from 123 to 130

 

+4 increase??

 

What they are referring to is that most cap sites were already factoring a higher cap number around 126mil instead of the 123mil for last season.  That accounts for the 4mil increase people are going on about.

What he said.

 

Plus the $11 mil you used is already factoring the the cap at $130M

 

We have $17.8 Mil in dead money(highest in the league) counting against the cap this year. At least according to overthecap.com

^^^ the cap number I used was factored with 123 million cap space, not 126, hence the added 7 million going to 130

I see what your saying I was just pointing out why someone would argue +4 instead of +7.  Couple threads going on right now about this and people are getting more and more confused.

The NFLPA.com site has info from 2013 not 2014.  Look at the carry over and the cap and current contracts.  It reflects 65 contracts, 3.6 carryover ,etc.  That is last year's numbers not this year's numbers.

they're both projections, an official cap number hasn't been set yet. the original 126 projection gave an extra +3 mil over last years 123 cap, the newest 130 projection gives an extra 7 mil

There are a lot of different figures floating around concerning the Panthers cap space. I'm going by the NFLPA's public League Cap Report as the NFLPA actually has direct access to player contracts and in general I'm going to trust the NFLPA over some random website.

Uses 2013 numbers and wonders why there's confusion with the cap this time of year

Is it? I can't tell. Did it increase recently due the the $130M rumor?
