It would really suck if they were offering say a 3rd round pick but because he vetoed the trade we end up cutting him for nothing. I don't think he's worth more than a late round pick myself, but i'm very interested to here what the compensation would've been.

Would you sign with Detroit on the end stretch of your career? Ken has done more for us than that.


If Lucas had accepted the trade, he would get his base salary of $5.6 million this year.....instead he turned it down, will probably get cut, and take his chances in the FA market that is deep at CB. At this stage in his career - he should have taken the $5.6 million, played out his final year on the contract, and gone back into the FA market next year. (especially since next year has no salary cap). Just my opinion....

They had just started talking so who knows. Seems like no one wants to play for us but yet dose not want to get traded ether. Craziness.

I agree. Apparently money is not a huge issue for Lucas.

Also seems to be the deal with everyone we are trying to trade.

Indeed, it was proven to be a true rumor. As opposed to an untrue rumor.
Apologies, original post edited. The whole thing just looked bogus on its surface when I read the original post, like someone was trying to start another rumor instead of actually having some information. I was wrong. Sorry.

The link made me wonder too, but I heard confirmation shortly later.

I know free agency begins at midnight but didn't the teams have to make their final cuts by 4 pm today?

Is Lucas still around?

If we're under the cap and were trying to trade him, why would we cut him?...

I'm starting to think Lucas has put himself in a bit of a pickle by refusing the trade. If the Panthers hang on to him for a while longer but then decide cut him down the road, he may find it harder to get on with a team as many will have already filled their CB needs in FA. That reduces bidding wars which potentially reduces his offers.

I wonder if it was going to Detroit that was the biggest factor or perhaps it was a trade contingent on him signing a new contract with the Lions...one he got whiff of and didn't like one bit based on the wording.

Gantt speculating that a last ditch effort for a trade is in the works.

Honestly what could we get for him? Is this player for player? Draft picks?

Gantt is right, the bridges may have been burned. Might as well try to get something for him, even if it is just a sixth rounder.

Having 11 million cap hit over two years off the books would be a big help.
