As everybody in the NFL is clearing up roster space befor the beginning of free agency, the Carolina Panthers are no different. After signing tackle Jordan Gross to a six-year, $56.4 Million contract, and slapping DE Julius Peppers with the franchise tag the Carolina Panthers have spent this week clearing up some cap space to accomodate these moves.
By releasing wide receiver D.J. Hackett, running back Nick Goings and offensive lineman Jeremy Bridges the Panthers have saved $4.74 Million in cap space. They also recently turned a $10 Million roster bonus scheduled for cornerback Chris Gamble into a guarantee, which saved the Panthers another $8 million. The team has also restructured the contract of linebacker Landon Johnson.
