Panthers | Mitchell Restructures Contract
Pat Yasinskas, of the Charlotte Observer, reports Carolina Panthers C Jeff Mitchell restructured his contract recently to clear enough salary cap room for the signing of LB Brandon Short. The Panthers cut Mitchell's 2004 cap figure from $3.8 million to $2.8 million by converting almost $2 million of base salary into bonus money. The downside for the team is that Mitchell's cap figure for 2005, the final year of his contract, rises to $5.3 million.
