I'm saying, at the time, most observers thought Campbell's value to the Panthers was two-fold--both his ability to QB the PP, and his ability to bring them a bit closer to the cap floor.

I'm not saying someone will acquire Briere simply as a cap dump; I'm saying that, if the floor doesn't go down under the new CBA (a real possibility) that Briere's value to some teams might be enhanced by his salary-AAV, in addition to what he brings on the ice.
