What else would you expect him to say? 

 

PR machine, dude. Rivera is an intelligent guy. He's got a bit of politician in him.

The fact that Rivera gives specific traits he is happy to be seeing tells me it's not fluff. Fluff is non-specific.

Should've drafted that 8th round rated tackle instead.

Wtf were we thinking?!

I didn't love the pick but I didn't hate it. Absolutely great value where they got him. I still think they maybe could have gone in a different direction than from a guy who is only going to play when CJ or GH need a quick breather.

I'm dumb enough to hope the panthers keep all three. Besides the panthers refusing to use both RBs on the same down, that's possible with DEs.

..or on passing downs moving him to the 3-tech. We can find ways to use him

Would you rather have that, or Cam. I don't believe you can have both long term.

 

 

I think it is possible.  TV contracts come in I believe next season which should cause a dramatic jump in the cap.  We have I think another 20 mil in dead money this year.  Something is going to give in the runningback department soon also.

 

We could be looking at another 40-50 mil over the next 2 seasons for Cam, Hardy and Keek.

I just hope we can get something for either Hardy or Johnson if Ealy turns out to be a great selection. It would really hurt to just let Hardy walk and him end up with a 15 sack season with the Buccaneers or Seahawks for a mere compensatory 3rd rounder.

Honestly, I want hardy to stay, but his asking price is going to be way too much. I rather they find a way to trade him for a future draft pick. Get more DE talent in next years draft. Then in the near future find the replacements for Johnson as well. If we sign Cam, there is no way we sign those DE's as well. You still have Luke's contract to look at. Gettleman has his work cut out for him.

I agree.  At the end of the day, a decent amount hinges on how much he can prove year 1 in whatever role is given.  If it allows us to part ways with someone, it opens cap room for other positions and we got another stud DE on our hands.

 

It shows how the BPA strategy can have a 2-3 year echo.
