Let's clarify here...
It's not that the Panthers never make big moves. They do. They generally don't go after big name free agents, but they do make surprising cuts (especially this year) and GM Marty Hurney loves to trade, probably more than most GMs in the NFL.
Do they shock us sometimes? Absolutely. Part of the reason for that is that they're very good at keeping their secrets...a secret :sosp:
The point here is that whenever you see a story about "an unnamed team" or someone "secretly working" to make some splashy deal, it never turns out to be the Panthers.
They don't want the press to know about it? They won't. So when you see the "unnamed team" articles floating around, it's safe to assume it isn't the Panthers.
When they make a move, you'll know then. Prior to it, you might not hear a peep.
