I am very confused, where is all the money being saved from these cuts going, not to mention we wont have to pay a first round pick this year? I assume in the Richardson's pockets. Not sure if he is preparing for the 2011 lockout, is morally against paying players in an uncapped year, or is just cheap..but we're looking like the NFL version of the Marlins right now, except we sell out every game and have a revenue sharing system.

Charlotte has supported the Panthers monetarily how about the Panthers showing the fans a little support, rather than trying to save a buck.

State of the Panthers

As of this writing, Carolina had not made any significant additions in the free-agent market. And the Panthers don't have a first-round pick in the upcoming draft. So, what is going on with the Panthers? That's a good question. Obviously they are cutting costs. Not only did they let Julius Peppers leave without receiving compensation, but they also decided to part ways with other, lesser-impact players.

It seems pretty apparent that the Panthers are not looking to win immediately, which then makes you wonder about John Fox's long-term status with the club. To me, the Panthers still have a long list of positions that need addressing. With the exception of Steve Smith, the pass-catchers might be the worst in the league. That isn't a great way to break in a new -- but rather promising -- young quarterback in Matt Moore.

Also, the defensive line needs a real influx of talent, particularly at defensive tackle. But where is this help going to come from? The team will be younger, but missing the first-round pick in this draft really hits home. Is it time to consider shopping DeAngelo Williams? Where is the leadership going to come from? It could be a very long year for Carolina.

If I could give scouts inc some pie I would. why does this come up every single day?? this team still has its core of young guys that will keep us together. I really don't are what the outsiders think. we aren't the Browns, Raiders, Bears, etc. we don't need to spend $80 million on free agents. just a few guys is all we really need. Most of the teams that do all the spending during free agency end up right where they picked off the previous year. at home

We still have some good players and the people we let go were old. We drafted all these players in the past for a reason, to eventually become starters not to sit on the bench behind a bunch of aging players. If you think about it rationally, it actually makes some sense.

I think JR is just looking at the big picture and is tired of coming up short with what we had for awhile now.

and if we tank next season, so be it. we will take a big step with our top 10 picks in the draft next year.

But I don't see this team tanking..I see us going 9-7 at least.

Hello..Julius Peppers..he is no longer on the team

We have 0 starters from last season on the D-line returning

We have no 2nd or 3rd WR

We have no backup O-lineman

We have an unproven QB

We have no first rd draft pick

We have not backup LB's

Think some free agency money could have been spent, especially since we are saving what $17M from releasing one player

-Or at least keep peppers, could have signed him long term/franchised him if wanted

-All i am saying is put the money back into the team, just make an effort instead of looking like cheapskates

So matt moore looked promising with our group of recievers but if he plays with the same recievers this year he's going to fail?

We do need help at WR but their stance is pretty exagerated.

The only move that has shaken my confidence so far is hoover. I think the team plans on moving around a lot on draft day to take advantage of some value picks in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rounds.

fug Peppers, he didn't want to be a Panther anyways. We'll do better without him.

I think we'll wait till after the draft to pick up the left overs. Peppers will be hard to replace but still....fug him.

Maybe you should set yourself on fire outside of BoA stadium as a form of protest.
