Panthers, Redskins already over salary cap

  The Panthers are one of two teams presently over the NFL’s  2007 salary cap, which is set for $109 million.

   While numerous teams have in excess of $20 million to spend in free agency (thanks to a  new Collective Bargaining Agreement that has increased the cap to an all-time high), the Panthers are $1.6 million over the cap. The Washington Redskins are $2.7 million over the limit.

   Teams don’t have to be in compliance with the cap until the start of free agency in March. The current figures don’t reflect some credits the Panthers will receive, but those likely will put the team only slightly under the cap and some roster moves  or contract restructures will need to happen for the Panthers to be active in free agency.

so cut morgan, foster, colbert, gaines, kemoeatu, gross, weinke, thomas davis, hartwig, gamble...pretty much every player that was worthless and contributed nothing ths year, and we're all set.

oh and most importantly dump MARTY HURNEY for bringing all these busts (except morgan) to the team in the first place.

Wait... that Hurney that brought the player who brought us to a Super Bowl a couple of years ago?

Take it slow, most NFL Teams would be happy, if there worst Season in the last 5 seasons would have been 7-9.

panther t,

Even if you cut players they still count against the cap, so it doesn't help our cap situation at all to cut every player you listed.

The biggest drag on our salary cap has to be Deshaun. He is WAAAAAAAAY overpaid, it was idiotic for the Cats to give him so much money last off-season and he is at best a #2 back.
