Worth noting that in the Fox era, only one time has the team traded a player solely for picks, that being the Kris Jenkins trade. It's mostly player for player or picks for a player.

I started this off as a comparison of this offseason with the 2002 and 2003 offseasons when Fox was just starting to build the team, but for now all I've been able to look at was raw numbers. The team's history pages don't have easy tracking for players picked up (or lost) from cuts, waivers, etc. I'll have to look for another source on that.

I'll have to go deeper on it later.

The number of trades surprises me, I had forgotten about a lot of them. Common sense suggests another trade will be made, be it in or out, so anyone worried about the current status of the roster needs to be patient

Wow nice breakdown. I had forgotten how many UFA we signed in '08, that's crazy. This year will be lowest amount of picks we've had in the Fox era. Barring any trades of course.

nice work, interesting to see that the season's that we lose more UFA than sign, we dont have a playoff appearance....

So, every season we signed more UFA's than we lose, we have a winning record...?

EDIT: Damn... beat me by a minute. Gotta stop letting work emails get in the way of my Huddle productivity. :D

    • I honestly thought this was going to be a McCaffery thread. 
    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
