    Is there a cap hit envolved if this is true? If so, how much? mVm, I believe the figure we had prior to the restructuring was a savings of 625K or something like that, do you have the new number?

    if I'm right... and I may not be... there is less of a cap hit if he chooses to retire

    If he retires this season, we save his salary. He took a pay cut to 1 million or so. So we save a million.

    This year's portion of the bonus is on the books regardless, and the rest would go next year.

    What if he announces this is his last year??? does that mean we have to take next years hit as well

    No, not if he plays. Next year is next year, regardless.

    It only all comes due now if he retires before June 1.

    I say since we have to pay for it it would be best if he announces this will be his last year then... its in our books we might as well get the most out of it... he retres we get UNGODLY money in the end for next year... best case scenario I'd think

    Brain, it doesn't matter when he announces his retirement. It's all about when he gets cut or retires.

    A severance needs to be made.

    I don't think he'll retire this year. I do think this is his last year with the Panthers, regardless.

    The real problem here is that if the story is true, why did we ignore DT in the draft and in FA so far?

    Yes, I know we signed Burton, but who else?

    if it were a grave medical concern, Gilbert would have been cut if not retired. It's more of a thing where it's a nagging injury that may force him to decide it's not worth playing with.

    And of course, June is still awaiting us. He could still be a planned cut for this reason.

    But nonetheless I wouldn't read into the lack of drafting a DT. if we were to cut Gilbert, we'd keep both Buck and Burton through the next year.
