Year 2 carries a cap hit of $8.3 million and Year 3 carries a cap hit of $9.8 million. There are two voidable years (2022 and 2023) at the end of the contract that void if Paradis is on the roster after Super Bowl LVI (Feb. 2022).Here’s a brief explanation of how those void years work from Nick Korte at Over the Cap:The Panthers can split this $3.6 million cap hit into two chunks if they give Paradis a contract extension.There’s no denying that Hurney used some creative accounting to get this deal done. I’m not the biggest fan of adding $3.6 million in dead money to the salary cap four years from now, but if the Panthers can come to terms on a contract extension within the next three years it will work out alright for both parties. And for what it’s worth [url= http://www.thepanthersclub....sey/]Youth Michael Palardy Jersey[/url] , Korte thinks the Panthers got a good deal for Paradis.The Carolina Panthers have signed free agent center Matt Paradis to a three-year, $27 million contract according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.Paradis has spent his career with the Denver Broncos after being selected in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He spent his college career at Boise State.The Panthers needed to add a center to the roster after Ryan Kalil announced his retirement last year. Paradis brings the Panthers some much-needed veteran stability at arguably the most important position on the offensive line, and his relative youth (he’s only 29) allows them to potentially give him a second contract if the first three years work out in their favor.Paradis will be required to pass a physical before the contract becomes official. He was placed on injured reserve by the Broncos in November after suffering a broken leg, but has claimed that he is healthy and ready to go in 2019.Assuming there are no snags with the physical, this signing allows the Panthers to focus on other positions of need with their first picks in the upcoming draft. Former N.C. State standout center Garrett Bradbury was among those rumored to be on Carolina’s radar in the first round [url= http://www.thepanthersclub..../]Stitched Michael Palardy Jersey[/url] , but now that the Panthers have locked up Paradis for the next three years they can shift their focus to a pass rusher or offensive tackle with the No. 16 overall pick.What do you think of this move, Panthers fans?
