D-Will a UFA

Looks like when the CBA is reached, it will allow RFA to only be applied to third year players. This means D-Will's tender is void, and that he has played his last game in Carolina.

Guess trading him last season would have been a great move after all, aye?

Where did you hear it would only be applied to 3rd year players?

Bad news for the Vikings, if and when free agency happens -- and assuming unsigned players will be unrestricted free-agents after four or five years. Rice has four seasons of accredited service with the Vikings, and it's very likely that when a new CBA happens, unrestricted free agency will revert to the original rules -- if you're not franchise- or transition-tagged when unsigned after four or five years, you're free. When Adam Schefter reported Sunday Rice would definitely test the open market before he signs with anyone, it meant the Vikings would very likely be playing without Rice this year. If there is a this year, of course.

So after 4 years, which Deangelo is, he is an UFA.

So the new CBA will state that 4th year players aren't allowed to resign with their teams? Wow that sucks.

I see no reason that Carolina wouldn't attempt to re-sign him. Doesn't mean that it'll happen, but I bet they'll certainly try.

It's laughable really. The Panthers are the only team in the league I can think of that lets their best players walk and gets nothing in return. More proof that Hurney is just a numbers guy. This team needs a football guy in the front office.

They won't win the bidding war for him, nor should they. We have three capable backs without him, much bigger needs elsewhere.

This assumes that FA will begin immediately upon a new CBA being signed... which may not be the case.

The fact that we didn't trade him last season makes me think we're going to at least make a run at re-signing him. Still don't think we should sink too much into him, though. RB is far from our biggest need, or even a need at all.
