Jordan Gross restructures deal with Panthers

Cam Newton, Jordan Gross AP

The Panthers cleared nearly $7 million worth of cap room now, by restructuring the contract of left tackle Jordan Gross.

Gross was scheduled to make $8.7 million this year in base salary, but according to former player agent Joel Corry, Gross will now make $5.5 million this year. The deal also allows him to void his contract next year.

The Panthers had been talking about this deal with Gross for weeks, with both sides willing to move to keep him around.

While he might not be playing at a Pro Bowl level any longer, he’s still a solid starter at left tackle, and gives the Panthers one less position to address, along with the ability to do some more bargain shopping in the free agent market, prior to the draft.

    Good. I’ve always liked Gross.

    Him and Steve Smith are the last members of our SB38 team and I’d like to see both retire as Panthers.

    Wow what a blessings…really needed that extra cap space. Now we can get better quality free agents and improve this squad. Only if other teammates of his would follow suit. Ie. Johnson, Beason, Williams.

    Possibly the worst picture ever.

    Johnson doesn’t need to restructure, he just signed that deal…and he’s worth every penny…

    Hopefully we could go after DHB, Alan Branch, or Marcus Thomas.

    Team player!! He should be a Panther for life. I feel bad for trading him in Madden now!
