His third game in as an UDFA, over 60 yards and many great plays and some of you want to cut him for one big rookie mistake. Biggest bunch of inbred mouth breathers I've ever seen. How do you people know how to operate the internetz?
Exactly. And for those saying bum ankle blah blah did u not watch panther games last season? He always had balls sailing on him.
It's common knowledge throwing off your back foot can cause balls to sail. Some of his throws off his back foot in the past has been due to pressure and not having time to go through the entire throwing motion.
Unless I'm neglecting some other information, here's the breakdown of Jonathon's cap/dead money situation.
If he was a June 1st cut next year, it spreads his dead money cap hit over 2 seasons.
In 2015 we would save 1.5 mil
In 2016 we would save 2.75 mil
In 2017 we would save 5.5 mil Total savings = 9.75 mil
If we keep him in 2015 and cut him outright in 2016.....
In 2016 we would save 2.25 mil
In 2017 we would save 5.5 mil Total savings =7.75 mil
If we keep him in 2015 and designate him as a June 1st cut in 2016.....
In 2016 we would save 5.9 mil
In 2017 we would save 4.6 mil Total savings =10.5 mil
Basically it looks like it boils down to paying 2 mil to keep him next year. If he looks anything like his old self, I don't see us letting him go. If this year looks like the last two years, he could be gone. Gettlemen will have a decision to make based off his 2014 performance.
