The only thing about DWill's situation is that he's going into a contract year...

We'll either extend him, trade him, or let him play out his deal and try to work something out next offseason...

Sure, we're not even a week into the official offseason, but one would think if they were going to extend him, there would be rumblings in some of the outlets by now...

So far, the only things I have heard are from other teams' writers mulling the option of trading for him... Yeah, it is speculation, but I can see where they have a point...

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

You have to remember that the Panthers NEVER leak anything to the media. How many had any idea of the players that were being released? None.

:crazy: I agree with many of the posts in this thread. Firesale????? doesnt look like that to me. I am a little nervous about an entirely new starting D-line but that being said its not like what we had was a bunch of world beaters. I think the team could actually be better next season.

where is my wildly flamed post from a few months ago about this?
I hope this agent and others predictions on this are wrong..but where there is smoke..there is fire...sale.

Not really. We now have young and hungry guys. With Brayton, Kemo (post -op), and Lewis we knew exactly what we had....decent but not great players.

These are the points on the article that stand out the most.

"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."

"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.”

if one agent is thinking that wouldnt others be thinking that too. honestly if i was a agent i would not send my clients to carolina. i would look for a team that would be giving out more than a 1 year deal and who didnt recently dump all there vets.

So an agent says "They didn`t sign my client, so they must not be interested in winning" and we should take that seriously?

Come on guys! Have you never watched a Pantherrs offseason before?

Fox has been told he has one year to prove he deserves an extension. Do you really believe a coach in that circumstance is going to sign on for a "fire sale"?

Which is a good indication as to why you are not an agent.

There are no FA's on the market now that are anywhere near worth what this group is getting. This is the worst FA class in decades. I am glad we are sitting this out now.

Wait until after the draft. You will see other players being released to make room. That is where you can find assets to plug into your system.

Everyone wants the big splashes...gives them something to talk about. However, those teams that typically make those moves have not been successful.

Seriously? People are worried about what agents are saying? All they care about is getting their 30+yr old clients signed for more than they're worth.

Edit...dammit, Mr. Scot beat me to it.

Seems those of us concerned at this point aren't the only ones. I will wait until June to see what happens. But so far, it can't be characterized as anything but a rebuilding year. That could change if we bring in some vets to replace those we are losing.

Making a big splash early in the free agent market is a lot like being the first person to a garage sale. They might have found a treasure, but most likely they've just overspent for something the prior owner found to be a waste of space.

We never make waves early on in free agency except for the players we let go. And we're not exactly a team that makes agents salivate at a big commission check.

I'm just waiting to see what undervalued, under-utilized diamond in the rough the team turns up with this year.

Sounds like the 'agent' is a crybaby mfer that won't get to take his family on their annual European Cruise because the Panthers are being 'tight' with his clients. :rolleyes:
