Agent: Panther's Having a Firesale, Have Thrown Away 2010 Season

I’ve been talking to a lot of agents over the past few days and it’s hard to find one who has a client the Panthers seem interested in signing.

Take this for what it’s worth, but here’s one agent’s opinion of the Panthers: “They’re having a fire sale. They have thrown away the 2010 season and (owner Jerry) Richardson is going to be pushing for a lockout (after the 2010) season. They are going to be playing Big Lots football in 2010.”

Personally, I find it hard to believe Richardson will be “pushing” for a lockout since I don’t think that benefits anyone, players or owners. But I understand what he’s saying — that Richardson is trying to pinch the players’ union as much as possible by keeping salaries low.

I think it’s still too early in free agency to rush to any judgements. The Panthers normally don’t make big moves early on but wait until the initial wave of big spending cools down. So let’s be patient and see.

Up to this point, I'd say the agent is spot on...

I'm really starting to worry that we'll be shipping DeAngelo out soon...

While I'm sure it's not quite as extreme as that article protrays it, it's still very telling

Im sure The Charlotte Observer will get right on this and release 20 opinion pieces by Sorenson & Fowler in the next 2 weeks questioning our ownership being commited to "winning". ;)

They obviously don't care about winning this season.

So releasing Jake, Diggs, Johnson, Lewis and Kemo and allowing Brayton and Muhammed to walk is a "fire sale"?

So far, the only impact player we've lost is Peppers. Jake was an impact player last year, but in the wrong way.

Like many teams, we're using this uncapped year to clear out these older, expensive guys out for younger promising talent.

I disagree that right now it's a firesale.

Now, I am with you on the DeAngelo thing. When we start shipping out players under contract who are still productive on the field, then it's time to start worrying. I just don't think that is going to happen but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried about it.

So far, all I can say is they're getting rid of bad contracts and avoiding new bad ones.
