Panthers UFA Signings

22 posts in this topic

I'm really anxious to see O'Hanlon play out over the course of the season. I vividly remember watching this kid in the Oklahoma game and thinking "Now that is a football player!" All you can do in the UDFA signings is wish them the best and hope they can contribute and have a nice career in Carolina.

Go Panthers

I would guess 95+% of UDFA's don't make the league.

I would guess you'd be wrong.

Let me give everyone a list of some of the players in recent history that went undrafted (and I am sure I am missing some):

Matt Moore

Kurt Warner

James Harrison

Jeff Saturday

Nick Harper

Antonio Pierce

Adewale Ogunleye

Ryan Grant

Bart Scott

Brian Waters

London Fletcher

Jason Peters

Pat Williams

Adam Vinatieri

Jeff Garcia

Willie Parker

Wes Welker

Tony Romo

Priest Holmes

Antonio Gates

And thats just the really good starters. Plenty more make the team and contribute.

Do you want me to make a list of the thousands of UDFA's that didn't make over the last several years? 95% is being generous.

Now think about that now. 95% is 1/20. So if you only signed 10 players and 1 made the cut that would be 90%. Almost every team has 1 or 2 players that make the cut. We still have quite a few of the 19 UDFA we signed last year (4 although they did spend a majority of the season on the PS but they are still here a year later).

UDFA are where good FO can really make a franchise. Anyone can spot talent in the 1st few rounds, it takes a real eye for talent to pick up a Antonio Gates, Bart Scott, or Tony Romo as UDFA

Dude c'mon.....For every guy that you named, theres about 100 undrafted guys who didnt make it.

Every year after the draft we always seem to sign UFAs who just are just there to fill roster spots for camp. The only person I can actually see making the squad is Jackson from UVA and he'll probably be on the practice squad. There were plenty of QUALITY undrafted free agents this year and we didnt sign any of them. You cant tell me that AJ Jefferson from Fresno State or Donovan Warren from Michigan dont have more potential than the corners that we drafted. This kind of stuff irks me but I have learned to accept it

Have you read a single post I have made on the subject I'm just as pissed with our UDFA and could give you 20 that made it that I would have said have starter talent. The whole reason I gave that list was to prove just how bad our FO is at finding a gem there and to prove its not impossible to find pro-bowl la. Sure plenty don't make it but thats not the point. If only 1 of your UDFA become a quality starter who cares what the other 10-15 do they were basically risk-free.

We are celebrating here in Blackburn! Kurtis Gregory grew up here. It was his dream to play football. He played at Santa Fe High School and then for Missouri Tigers and we celebrate that he is getting a chance to play for the Carolina Panthers. He is a great guy and will work very hard for the team. We wish him the best! The Panthers just gained some really excited fans!
