Good article on resigning our guys

Steve Reed wrote it and is very accurate in my opinion. Nice to have an informative piece of reporting and not something from the Bleacher Report or Pro Football Weekly.

I like what he said about Rhys Lloyd. I didn't even think about the near guaranteed touchback every kickoff with him.

I like the old saying "If it isn't broken, don't fix it". But in this case, I don't really like hurneys approach of "keeping the core guys together". We just came off of a 2-14 season and in this case, I think we should "fix" what's "broken"

a good article on resigning our players would consist of actual cap numbers and how much we'll have available after the fact.

I agree, but they would have to use cap numbers from a contract that hasn't been signed yet. And I have seen 20 different versions of what the cap will look like. So I imagine it would be hard to write an article with cap space listed.

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
