Does Greg Hardy get the starting role?

Obviously Charles Johnson will be on one side, but what about the other side? Will it continue to be a "by committee" sort of thing with Brown/Hardy/Brayton/etc?

I think he has a pretty good shot.

He'll probably win out in TC unless Brown is finally ready.

Obviously you forgot Charles Johnson is a free agent. I'm not saying he is gone but I don't think you can pencil him in just yet. I think the Panthers will want to keep him but I have no clue what he wants or what other team may be willing to pay him.

This year's free agency will be very interesting since chances are it will come after the draft and not before it. Teams often draft for need when free agency plans don't work out even though everyone says they don't want to do it. So if a team that was really wanting a DE and missed on one in the 1st round be willing to overpay for Johnson even more so than in the past? Will it have no effect at all? Will teams have a chance to resign players before the market is completely opened up?

So many questions and until the CBA is worked out we don't know. We could end up not even able to keep Kalil if the franshise tag is gotten rid of.

So does the team go into the draft with Johnson on the team or do they go into the draft without any of their RFA or FA in the concret plans for 2011?

But to answer your question, no I don't think Hardy is ready yet to be a starter and a year without OTAs and training programs is going to hurt that. He's probably an offseason away from being ready to compete for a starting position and he is probably not getting that this year. If Johnson were not to return it would be Brayton and Brown starting, or if Johnson were to return Johnson and Brayton.

Under Fox, not Rivera.

I think he does win the job, buy needs to work on stopping the run by being more disciplined.

The whole rivera situation sounds fishy.... just another pawn for Hurney.... I'm sure it will be the same

I thought he signed a 2 year contract... I'm just not sure if it was for 09/10, or 10/11

If you let Charles Johnson get away then you completely turn your back on the entire "build through the draft"/"develop young talent" approach.
