Cutting cornerback Chris Gamble got the Carolina Panthers under the salary cap.  But they’ll need more cap space if they hope to add new players.

Some new space could be coming from tackle Jordan Gross.

According to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, the Panthers want Gross to take a pay cut.

The 32-year-old veteran has a cap number of $11.7 million.  “There’s two sides to football – the football side and the business side,” Gross told Person.  “In the offseason, you deal with the business side.  Right now the Panthers and I are trying to work out the best solution to help this team move forward.”

Gross has the second-highest cap number on the team, behind only defensive end Charles Johnson, who counts for $13 million in 2013.

    Do it Jordan. We need some additional pieces and Hurney is no longer here to mess things up. The way JPP abused you last year on Thursday night should make you want to give money back to the Panthers.

    Gross has always been a “team first” guy. However, I would not lose $3 million of my salary because the Panthers allowed Hurney to go on his idiotic spending spree. If he does restructure, it would be cutting money that he would lose by going free agent. Gross wants to retire a Panther, so he may give a the team a break.

    Charles Johnson has a 13 mil cap number and is in the top 10 of salaries at his position. I think he has been good for Carolina but IMO he is not a top 10 DE

    So they sweetened the pot and are now saying, sorry we can’t pay you that much?

    What goes around comes around.

    I wish the season would start so there would be news other than this sort of thing.

    Yes. And everyone does it. When level of play drops below level of salary. Yes.

    a 32 year old tackle is not worth that money.
