2) I just don't see the Panthers ever being an "up against the cap" team so it shouldn't be a problem to take a small hit. I do amit, though, I am unfamiliar with the inner workings of buyouts re: cap hits.
As I understand it, buyouts are pretty simple for players over 26 years of age. 2/3rds the value of the contract over twice the length. Meaning we'd have a $666,667 hit for the next 2 years. Means we'd save $333,333 against the cap this year and still have the $666,667 cap hit next year.
