Panthers Save $4.26 Million in Cap Space With Charles Johnson Restructure - Over the Cap
It appears as if the Carolina Panthers have restructured the contract of DE Charles Johnson late last week, converting his remaining base salary into a prorated bonus.  Johnsons salary was reduced from $6.75 million to $715,000 for the remainder of the season. Johnson’s new salary cap number is $8,740,000 which amounts to $4.26 million in savings. The restructure will increase his cap figure in 2014 to $16.42 million and his dead money to $16.26 million. In 2015 his dead money increased from $6 million to $8.84 million while his cap rises to $17.42 million.

It would seem to indicate the Panthers are planning some kind of move by clearing more space this year at the expense of next year. Maybe not but let's keep an eye out to see what unfolds this week.
