Why has Gross not signed yet?

21 posts in this topic

Jordan Gross needs to sign a long time deal w/ the Panthers ASAP. His continuing delay will start to hinder how management is able to deal with other positions. Gross is a good player, it is why we franchised him last year, but it is now time for him to man up and get a deal done.

Gross will get Franchised over Peppers b/c Gross wants to be here. By getting a deal done w/ Gross, we will be able to Franchise Peppers instead and get some value back in a trade of some type. And since Gross wants to be here, it would serve him and organization to lock up a long term deal, now.

I;m sure they are talking.

They were really close last year, just one detail kept him from signing, God only knows what that was.

He will cost more now, but is worth a big deal IMO. LT's are really hard to find, and keeping this O intact is our most important thing right now.

Keep this in mind...this is Gross's one chance to make the big bucks and set himself up for the rest of his life. He'd be stupid not to listen to other offers. Hopefully he stays in Carolina. He's not just a great player. He's a great guy, too.

Yep, he is gonna have to get paid by Carolina.

Contracts don't normally get done this time of year. Wait until after the Superbowl, and before free agency.

not to mention he never gets hurt and can play both tackle spots.

We can't franchise anyone until Feb 5th so there's plenty of time.

We better not franchise Gross. We need to sign him to a long term deal. Hopefully it'll be Peppers that we franchise.

    • My question is whether we're sold enough on him to trade up with Jacksonville to ensure we get him. What would that take? I'd offer them our late 2nd rounder that we got from the Pats, take it or leave it. No way they trade down just for our 3rd round comp. pick and no way Gettleman gives up our original 2nd rounder. I maintain that the best case scenario for the Panthers is for at least 1 QB to go in the top-6, either to the 49ers or Jets. Jacksonville could opt for Solomon Thomas or Jonathan Allen over Fournette, but not likely anyone else other than Garrett, who is going 1st overall without a doubt. Would also be helpful for the Titans to go safety over corner, leaving the Jets with the option to take Lattimore. 1. CLE: Myles Garrett
      2. SF: Mitchell Trubisky
      3. CHI: Jonathan Allen
      4. JAX: Solomon Thomas
      5. TEN: Malik Hooker
      6. NYJ: Marshon Lattimore
      7. SD: Jamal Adams
      8. CAR: Leonard Fournette
