Possible DE Trade?

We have 6 legitimate 1 and 2 string DE's, and we may have to cut one.

It only makes sense to make a trade.  5 DE's of the caliber we have is

more than enough.

I don't agree with trading Alexander. I don't think we would get back in return what he's worth because he's still progressing.

 

He's on a rookie contract through 2015, and we need the depth, I would keep him around.

I only believe that Horton is getting reps with the first and second team defense because they know Alexander will be out and this is going to thrust Horton into a bigger role. They want him to be prepared.

Johnson also has a tweaked hammy which could of lead to increased reps for the depth

We have an abundance of assests at DE. If someone is desperate for help, we could spin one of the DEs for a solid OL prospect. Keep in mind.

Hardy is likely gone at seasons end. Alexander is a FA? Or has one more year.

Nothing wrong with holding the cards.

Good to have assests either way.

Alexander has off field issues and was recently promoted by Ron Rivera as a "Camp MVP". All he needed was a dog or a little kid and he could have been on a morning car dealership commercial.

 

Sounds like a classic 'pump and dump'. Personally I think Frank has been more of a Marginally Valuable Player. I also think they see Horton as more valuable as a player than trade bait.

Considering the QB's in our division, I would definitely do all I can to keep a strength a strength, we've seen our team with little pass rush...

I guess my question would be what team has such depth at OL?

No doubt. I like balance on both sides of the ball. Thus why I would support such a move.

I'm not completely against a trade if it gets us a quality tackle, but I think the possibility of that is low. We might get a backup, if that.

A legit backup OT is pretty high on my list lol.

If we are lucky cuts will provide us some depth and we can keep the DE group.

Rotating 6 DEs a game, that can play, could be a thing.

Yeah I think we will find a few guys after cuts that would be pretty close to the value of what we would get in a trade. We also should remember that we as Panthers fans put a certain value on our own players, and other GM's in the league may not necessarily share our opinions.
