    Unbelievable, the Panthers have the second fewest players under contract in the league, yet still have the third highest payroll. We're so screwed..

    Of course, the Pats are practically in the same situation as us interestingly enough.

    Say what you will about Mike Nolan on gameday, but the 49ers are in GREAT cap shape. Holy crap.

    They need to roll out some red carpet this offseason for skill positions and pass rushers.

    Thumbs up Thank You Adam

    Based soley off of Adam's superlative homework I see some teams primed for mega deal on March 1st.

    The Titans will have room left for a top flight wideout after getting Albert Haynesworth's signature on a six year sixty mil type contract.

    San Francisco (WR for mad Martz), Jacksonville (WR for Garrard) and Buffalo (WR opposite Lee Evans) will be looking for offensive help.

    I see Cincinnati, New York (N) and New Orleans needing help primarily at LB and in need of upgrades at all defensive positions.

    Naturally the FA market will heat up in the weeks following the SB when tendering deadlines and franchise/transition designations come due.

    Wait, the Giants need upgrades at ALL defensive positions? Some yes, but ALL? They must really suck.

    I believe Vols44 said clearly that the Giants need help at "asll" defensive positions.

    Excluding Antonio Pierce, few posters can name a Giants starting linebacker. They can use upgrades at both DT positions and depth in the secondary.

    Prepared to get back on subject.

    Really easy to stay out of cap problems when you don't have any good players to resign. ;)

    ....and thank you for the quality info Adam. :)

    yeah, but the pats have 22 mill tied up in Stallworth, Colvin and Kelly Washington and pushed 5.5 mill of space into this years cap (however that will be eaten up in SB bonus if they win)

    The Panthers are not in as bad of shape as the numbers indicate.
    There is about 8 mil that will carry over from last year due to LTBEs that where not achived.
    There will be 5 mil more freed up when Smith's roster bonus is prorated for the rest of his contract.
    Over 15 mil of that cap is due to Peppers and there is no way that deal will not get reworked.
    Cutting Carr will save 2 mil
    Cutting or reworking Morgan, Foster and Wahle, all of which will happen, will save another 16 to 18 mil

    When adding all those things up it will add 30 to 40 mil to the Panthers cap space

    Yeah, I made that comment before I read Darin Gantt's article the other day which explained all of that. The only potential cap casualty I would keep around is Wahle, he's overpaid but I don't see anyone out there who would be that much more cost effective.

    The big question though, what to do with Peppers? I think Hurney goes overboard sometimes restructuring contracts and because of that we're in this situation. Depending on how much cap room we actually have maybe the Panthers will eat that 15 million this season and slap the franchise tag on him in 2009, I kind of doubt that though.

    Similar story with the Colts. After McFarland is cut, the Colts will be about 16 million under. We'll probably see some restructures as well.

    Adam, please correct me if I'm wrong but this will have a significant impact on the cap availability for many teams.

    It could, depending on how much they pushed forward. And some teams will have theirs reduced by quite a bit because of tenders for RFAs, EFAs and possibly franchise/transition players.
