  1. Barnidge Time

    Seems like the perfect time to sign Gary Barnidge, he knows the playbook and would be the #1 TE just like he wanted. It would be a win-win situation although I'm wondering why the Texans didn't sign him this weekend.

  3. This week on the Huddle Podcast we are joined by Carolina Panthers writer Max Henson to discuss free agency and more. Really great insight from Max on Dave Gettleman. Definitely worth a listen. Over an hour of Panthers chatter. Direct MP3 Link Subscribe via iTunes
  4. According to Ian Rapoport, NFL wide receivers Jeremy Maclin and Randall Cobb will not be franchised by their respective teams. Panthers fans have targeted both receivers as possible additions in Carolina, but that outcome appears to be highly unlikely. Jeremy Maclin and the Philadelphia Eagles continue to work on a deal. Neither party appear to be interested in parting ways. Randall Cobb will probably not play for the Green Bay Packers next year, but as a top dollar free agent prospect he falls out of the Dave Gettleman budget. I'll spare you the "Tiffanys" label. Don't expect either of these players to be in Carolina this season.
  5. Panthers March Expectations

    As we sit in mid February, otherwise known as NFL no man's land, I thought it might be useful to take a look ahead to March and see what we can expect from Dave Gettleman. I think the best way to do that would be to take a look at the transactions from his two past seasons for the month of March, and in particular the free agent signings. 2013 March 27, 2013 Re-signed DT Dwan Edwards. March 21, 2013 Re-signed CB Captain Munnerlyn to a one-year contract. Signed S Mike Mitchell to a one-year contract. March 19, 2013 Signed CB D.J. Moore. March 9, 2013 Released CB Chris Gamble. March 1, 2013 Released DT Ron Edwards. 2014 March 20, 2014 Signed WR Jerricho Cotchery to a two-year contract. March 18, 2014 Signed S Roman Harper to a two-year contract. March 18, 2014 Re-signed LB Jason Williams and CB James Dockery. March 18, 2014 Signed TE Mike McNeill to a two-year contract. March 13, 2014 Released WR Steve Smith. March 10, 2014 Re-signed FB Richie Brockel to a two-year contract Re-signed OL Garry Williams to a one-year contract. In both years, notice there are no signings during the first week of free agency. While many other teams are agreeing to terms and signing with free agents during the first week of free agency, the Panthers sit and wait. Mainly due to the lack of available funds to pay salary, but also partly due to Gettleman not wanting to over spend for marginal players. Notice in each year there was a significant free agency signing around the 20th of March (both at safety coincidentally). 10 days after the players became available, gauged interest, and let the dust settle. Even though the Panthers have a little more purse this offseason, I expect this pattern will continue. I don't expect the Panthers to make a significant free agent signing right away, as much as Panthers fans would love it. Instead, look for them to watch as other teams overpay. Instead, they will again sit back and wait for a bargain for an experience veteran at a position of need.
  6. Those Dallas Right Tackles

    Dallas is in quite a conundrum this off season. They are in the rare position of having two starting caliber right tackles on the team, but both will be free agents come March 10. Doug Free was the starter most of the 2014 season with the Cowboys until a foot injury sidelined him. Then, Jermey Parnell stepped in and played just as well as Free, including starting the two playoff games. It is doubtful that Dallas will sign both players, as both know now that they are starters in the NFL. So one of these guys will be available. Most agree Free is the better player, but not by much. Parnell is 3 years younger, the Cowboys may go with youth. The Panthers look like they have a solid player in Mike Remmers, but there is no depth at tackle on the squad. The idea of bringing in another right tackle to compete, or possibly even toying with either at left tackle may be enticing to Dave Gettleman.

  8. With the next significant NFL date being the start of Free Agency on March 10, I thought I would take a look at the NFC South and see what teams are dealing with. Carolina has the fewest amount of Unrestricted Free Agents in the NFC South at 11. The Atlanta Falcons have the most at a whopping 19. I am not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing for their new coaching staff. It may help a great deal in molding the team they want. Here are the Unrestricted Free Agents by team... Atlanta Falcons - 19 UFA Osi Umenyiora Sean Weatherspoon Kroy Biermann Matt Bryant Jacquizz Rodgers Corey Peters Robert McClain Gabe Carimi Antone Smith Mike Johnson Cliff Matthews T.J. Yates Josh Wilson Javier Arenas Dwight Lowery Eric Weems Bear Pascoe Charles Godfrey Jonathan Scott Carolina Panthers - 11 UFA Greg Hardy Byron Bell Dwan Edwards Colin Cole Chase Blackburn Joe Webb Ed Dickson Kevin Matthews Garry Williams James Dockery Chris Scott New Orleans Saints - 13 UFA Patrick Robinson Mark Ingram Luke McCown Ramon Humber Parys Haralson Jonathan Goodwin Cheta Ozougwu Robert Meachem Shayne Graham Brandon Deaderick Jamarca Sanford Moise Fokou Greg Romeus Tampa Bay - 12 UFA Adrian Clayborn Mike Jenkins Mason Foster Dane Fletcher Da'Quan Bowers Luke Stocker Oniel Cousins Major Wright Larry English Jason Williams Lawrence Sidbury Greg Ellingson info provided by sport trac
  9. Colin Cole vs Dwan Edwards

    The Carolina Panthers have two veteran defensive tackles that are unrestricted free agents this offseason, Colin Cole and Dwan Edwards. Colin Cole first came to the Panthers as a run defense specialist in 2013. Since then he has carved out a spot on the Panthers roster as a defensive tackle to spell Star Lotulelei. Cole the type of low budget rotational player that is key to the long term success of the Panthers. Cole has always had consistent play for the Panthers. Not great, not bad, but good enough to stop the run when asked to fill in. Typically he gets somewhere between 20-30 snaps a game. Cole is now 34 years old. Dwan Edwards is also available for other teams to sign. Edwards is 33 years old and gets somewhere between 30-40 snaps a game. Edwards made a little over 2 million last year. The Panthers need to keep one of these players on the roster. They can't afford to lose quality depth at defensive tackle. GM Dave Gettleman always says you have to first stop the run to be able to get to the QB. Having two inexperienced guys back up Star and Short would not be ideal. In a perfect world, the Panthers could keep both of these players as both have performed well in the past. But realistically, there may be up to 10 rookies this season looking for roster spots, and I believe at least one will be defensive tackle. It may come down to which player is willing to accept a modest salary on a one year contract with the Panthers. Cole won't be sought after elsewhere, and Edwards may not be as well. Defensive tackles in the twilight of their careers aren't exactly a hot commodity in the NFL. Last year, Cole re-signed with the Panthers in April after being on the market for over a month. The demand just isn't there. If I had to make a guess, I would say that Dwan Edwards re-signs with the Panthers for around a million dollars on a one year contract and Cole retires.
