Awesome. If we got Joseph I almost wonder if teams would be able to score at all on us by passing.

When are you anticipating the lockout to officially end? And are we still gonna go after Braylon Edwards?

I was never given an exact date for when the lockout will end, but it is very close. I was told that the reports of them being close is true and that there will be a window for teams to bring back their free agents before free agency starts.

Edwards will only be looked at if Smith is traded. If that Panthers keep Smith it is unlikley a WR will be brought in. They will have:

Smith/Gettis/LaFell/Pilares/Edwards/Martin/Wright/Guy

They are very unlikely to cut Edwards after one season and they really like both Martin and Wright as special team guys. The last regime also loved Guy so he will have a shot in training camp. Most likely the final spot will go to Wright if he is healthy.

Is free agency going to be going on full bore during training camp or will everything be settled down by then? It just seems like a lot is about to happen in the next two-three weeks. I can't imagine being in training and then bringing in a bigtime FA like coefield or Joseph.

why would anyone think they would cut edwards? he hasnt been given a shot yet.

From what I've understood is that the team's would have 3 days to sign their own players, then FA period would be for 3-4 days after that. Meaning FA would go from the 28th - 31st of July.

Also Awesome on the Cap, the highest I've heard was 126 million plus the 21 for player benefits.

I heard something very similar to this as well. You are deinitely right about the 3 day period to sign your own free agents, I just was not aware that free agency would actually be so short, 3-4 days. To answer the question about the Panthers bringing a big free agent in during training camp, the answer is no. All of the big free agents will be signed very quickly. I do not know if anyone follows hockey, but expect free agency to be like that. There is tons of news the first 2 days, especially the first, and then it quiets down. All the big names will be signed relatively fast.
