Starting in 2015-end of 2016, I see CJ is owed the following:
'15: Base - $9.7M Cap Hit - $20M Dead Money - $14M
'16: Base - $10.75M Cap Hit - $15M Dead Money - $ 4M
Just trying to understand what all he is owed versus how much we're on the hook for if we cut him after '14. I was curious if we could cut him and use his money elsewhere, so I guess my questions are:
How much are we on the hook for if we want to cut him after this season?
Does it make more sense to keep him here vs. the cost of cutting him?
I love CJ and he's been one of my favorite players for quite some time. I just wonder if the Panthers look to clean house up front and roll with Ealy/FA defensive end, and use the money elsewhere.
