08:24 AM ET 09.29 | Panthers general manager Dale Tallon said new owner Vinnie Viola will allow a higher payroll (the team is $9.3 million below the salary cap ceiling), and Tallon expects to be more of a player in free agency next summer. Viola has such high regard for team president Michael Yormark that Yormark, who was promoted to CEO, has been allowed to become a minority owner in the team.

Looks like Vinnie might be as familiar with putting out a contract on someone as he is with signing a contract with someone.

He also looks like he's got connections you don't want to mess with.
