Mario Addison could be cut/traded- save 8 million cap

Recommended Posts

Burns is already showing out and deserves more snaps. 

Panthers have far too many players on one year deals, after cuts half maybe on one year commitments. 

Bradberry, Shaq, McCoy, Williams, Wright, and Love are the biggest ones. 

Mario(31 years old) looks terrible when asked to drop in coverage.

Burns is going to get plenty of snaps  regardless.

Addison is our most proven pass rusher and it a steal for what he's making.

I think you make a lot of good posts, but I completely disagree with this idea.

You want to cut our best proven pass rusher to save $8M??? It's almost as if you've immediately forgotten how absolutely pathetic our pass rush was last year.

No way do I do this. Mario is way more valuable as a pass rushing asset for this year than 8 mill right now

Mario is in the last year of his deal and cutting/trading him now does nothing but give us cap space this season alone.  This roster is fairly set, so there's no real urgency to free up a ton of cap room for 2019.  He's off the books next year (unless extended/re-signed).

Addison is a good player.  Would be a terrible decision.  You don’t cut good players just to save 8m unless you absolutely have to

Lack of consistent pass rush was a huge thorn in the Panthers side in 2018.

Your answer to that dilemma is to unload what little veteran pass rush talent we currently have?

Brilliant!

It could come down to Mario or Bradberry/Shaq on the books side.

Gimmie the young guys.

Mario looks like a bad 3-4 fit unless hes rushing the passer.

Its a young mans league and Mario is about to turn 32.

Mario is in the last year of his contract. If Burns has a good rookie year and Haynes and/or Miller show promise we probably let Mario walk in free agency. Flexibility isn't a bad thing.

But you absolutely don't cut your best proven pass rusher two weeks before the regular season to save $8M in cap space.
