Capologists! Answer me! Is 7 mil all the money we have now?

My goodness! I was reading this guy on BR breaking down our cap situation after signing Gano and tagging Hardy, and he said  (per Joe Person) that all we have right now is 7 mil. 

 

What in the hell are we gonna do with that? If we are going to get a solid veteran replacement at LT to keep Cam on his feet, we have to axe someone else. What in the hell? And we haven't even locked down Mitchell and Ginn. 

 

Is 7 mil all we have heading into free agency? Reality check time!

 

With the restructured contracts and Hardy only tied up for one year, the Panthers will most likely remain rather quiet once free agency opens.

The Panthers will sign players to fill holes, but not the likes of headline wideout Hakeem Nicks or safety Jairus Byrd.

Two interesting players that could be cap-friendly and a good fit for the Panthers are wide receiver James Jones and cornerback Tarell Brown.

That's consistent with what we've heard all along.

We knew Hardy was going to eat up all the current space.

As I right now that is the case. Obviously after guys like Lafell and maybe Godfrey are cut & then some restructuring is done that # will grow but not by too much. We'll be able to a little something in FA.

Well about 4 mill of that has to go to rookies so that leaves about 3. Its all monopoly money anyway, Hardy will sign a long term deal to reduce his cap and others will restructure. Basically its about the draft and getting solid guys for cheap 1 year deals. I can see us possibly making 1 decent FA signing at LT somehow.

LaFell is a FA. We will not recoup cap space for him since he is not under contract.

Last year at this point the we had $936,000 http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000154634/article/remaining-salarycap-space-for-each-nfl-team

 

Do you not remember that?

 

I remember us letting some people go too.  This year when you take into account who we have yet to sign vs who we have to slice and dice, we're running on fumes.  Some key people have got to go, and we're going to have to bring in some more question marks.

 

Tagging Hardy blew our cap room all up. now we can hardly fake it.

And that is without having a LT and only 2 WRs on the roster. He has his work cut out
