Possible DE Trade?

112 posts in this topic

Don't kill me for this, but would you trade G.Hardy to the Cardinals for T. Mathieu?  Since Dockett is out for year.  I would

Would I? YES.

 

But the Cardinals won't go for that.

FACT : The Panthers have what probably is the deepest group of Defensive Ends in the entire NFL.

 

 

When NFL teams look for valuable trades, they first look to teams that have talent to spare in the position of need. We all know this, it is obvious. The Panthers have 3rd string defensive ends that would be definite second string or possibly even situational first string players around the NFL.

 

 

Here are the locks to make the team, in order of skill level:

 

Charles Johnson

Greg Hardy

Kony Ealy

Frank Alexander (after 4 game suspension)

Mario Addison

Wes Horton

 

Listed are 6 defensive ends that belong on NFL rosters. However, there is probably only room for 5 on the 53 man roster.

 

I smell a trade.

 

 

 

Consider this as well...

 

They don't have to do anything now (before roster cut downs) due to Alexander's suspension. They can wait until the season has started when the demand may be higher due to injuries.

 

If they can't work a deal prior to week 5, then what do they do? Assuming all our guys are healthy, who goes?

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.

Hey, "you can never have too many pass rushers"

I smell all 6 stay, and one of the prodigy WRs goes. Why keep 6 or 7 WRs when we are clearly a defensive team. We are an injury and a suspension away from taking a big blow at DE. I want to groom our young DL

I have to agree with you. Although Horton is the most likely to go, I think we go the route of great rotation. If he is traded, they will probably be seeking draft picks. I dont see a player for player trade here unless its a great value trade. Because Getts has pretty good draft skills. (Stock-piling picks is also a good way to trade up in draft)

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.

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 also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
