he's too big. 

 

Plus no functional strength or most important “heart” to actually play better and not live off of excuses. It’s hard to imagine him having to think and suck in tandem. Him being responsible for calling the entire OL assignments would be a nightmare. He has trouble with just his own simple tasks.

I think they should keep him as the back up and eat his money this year. You need a back up anyway and you're not going to find a better back up, otherwise they would be starting somewhere. Have some nice sized cap room next year.

Any backup we don’t have to give 7M MORE to is a better option. And still have the same 9.8M cap hit as if you cut him. Please explain how that is sensible in any way?

There’s no scenario where it’s good to keep him. We need all the cap space we can so if we have like $32 Million instead of $25 million and another roster spot that’s huge.

I stopped reading at Donovan Smith is the best available option. Or I should have. 

Lets see. The injury guarantee is his entire salary of 7M. Not 1M. And he’s not restructuring anything. Recommending we keep him is completely ignorant. But pretty typical of that site. Uninformed fans grasping to ridiculous theories. And they found a guy at OTC as clueless as them.

  We give him 7M more and Hurney/Rivera should be tarred and feathered at midfield. 

Naah, Jason from OTC knows his stuff. If he says that Kalil is only guaranteed   1 mil, then he's probably correct. If so, that's the only good part of the contract for the panthers. That 1 mil may be if they cut him before the start of the new year in the NFL.

He also didn't say that Kalil would take a pay cut, but that it  was "worth a shot" 

What he's saying is that the panthers don't have any good options with Kalil. If you cut him as a june1 cut, you'll still have   9.8 mil dead money in 2020. You can't sign a decent replacement for the money you'll save and that a rookie LT puts Cam in danger.

I disagree with him about not moving Morton to LT, I think that makes the most sense.

If I was the GM, unless he'd take a drastic cut in pay, I'd cut Kalil, eat the money in 2020, try to re-sign Williams and have Williams and Morton as my tackles.

Then show me on either site where there is any mention of only a 1M guarantee on his salary for next year. Do they suddenly just leave those details out. Sportrac and OTC both have 7M and they both say the amounts are guaranteed on 3/15/19.  

  Once again, as we discussed before, why is it the smart move to hand him 7M more to do nothing. You’re paying 14.7M in dead cap either way. That 9.8M will still be there in 2020 even if you keep him. So what was the point besides throwing money away.? 

Or use that money towards signing a LT like Trent Brown. He’s a decent replacement. Anyone is. We just got similar play for 700k. But we can’t find a decent replacement for a player who is consistently one of the WORST at his position if he even plays? That may be the dumbest reason to throw money away I’ve ever heard. You would think we were trying to replace Joe Thomas. 

  We’ve been down this road before and I’ve shown you exactly why there is only one decision. Anything else is throwing money away at a sunk cost. For a player who was never injured to begin with.
