What about McFadden?

7 posts in this topic

No not Darren...

Bryant McFadden is an UFA. I've watched a lot of Steelers games over the last two years, and I like this guy. He's tough, plenty of talent, good with zone, and exactly the type of guy I'd like to have on our team. He's made some big plays as a backup for Steelers.

He's going to want a much bigger contract, and rightfully so. But we could cut Lucas, save a little money on McFadden (probably), and acquire a very promising young guy with enough experience that he isn't a project.

I'm sure there are some good reasons why we shouldn't be interested, and I'd love to hear them if anyone has some reservations. I'm drinking the Bryant McFadden Kool-Aid right now.

He's a very good candidate to come in and make an impact IMO. My roommate is a huge steelers fan and firmly believes that McFadden is their second best corner and has huge upside. I would love to have him come in and play the nickel for us we would have a sick lineup of DBs if that happened..

I'd see him taking Lucas' spot and Marshall staying at nickel. I don't expect any big moves, but I'd love this one.

I would say;

considering we had a TOP 3 offense in the last half of the season, and our secondary and Dline SUCKED

That anything is better.

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
