The Panthers have gone to NT Maake Kemoeatu for some late-inning salary cap relief, clearing up another $1.5 million worth of room by restructuring his contract.
Much like the deal with DT Damione Lewis we reported in this morning's paper, it converts some money into a signing bonus which can be prorated over future years of the deal. They've added four years onto the back of his contract (taking him through 2014), but realistically, both deals will be revisted next year or shortly therafter because of the bonus structures.
