How much salary cap space do the Panthers have after the first wave of free agency

Now that the first wave of free agency has crashed and settled into shore, we have a bit of a better idea on where the Carolina Panthers will sail next. We also have a better idea of ​​how much money they have left for their next trip.

According to, the Panthers have approximately $16.13 million in salary cap space at this very moment. And let’s put emphasis on the “at this very moment” part, as the details on the deals for defensive tackle DeShawn Williams and offensive lineman Justin McCray have yet to be announced.

So, as we wait on those, let’s also take a look at the 2023 cap hits for each of the team’s free-agent signings this offseason.

  • TE Hayden Hurst: $3.13 million

  • S Vonn Bell: $3.11 million

  • C Bradley Bozeman: $3.07 million

  • DT Shy Tuttle: $2.88 million

  • RB Miles Sanders: $2.75 million

  • QB Andy Dalton: $2.13 million

  • LS JJ Jansen: $1.09 million

  • DT DeShawn Williams: TBA

  • G Justin McCray: TBA

After losing no. 1 wideout DJ Moore in their pursuit of the No. 1 overall pick, the Panthers will likely use some of that money on a receiver or two. The team has expressed some degree of interest in Odell Beckham Jr., Adam Thielen and Mecole Hardman.
