The following quotes are from NFL scouts, coaches and front-office personnel, speaking on the condition of anonymity:

• "The Panthers came out of the gate firing (in free agency). The one thing about Jerry Richardson — he was the right man to head up the labor committee. He treats his people right. When a lot of teams were making cuts in salary, laying off employees and cutting pension plans, he stood by his people. He's a very loyal owner. ... I don't understand why they paid DeAngelo Williams the way they did. They didn't have to, in my opinion. No running backs are getting paid. It's why Chris Johnson and Frank Gore are so upset. But the Panthers like to reward their own, and they are giving Cam Newton every chance to be successful. Williams will make his job a lot easier. So will (former Bears TE Greg) Olsen. Kudos to (GM) Marty (Hurney) for that (trade). They are stocked and reloaded. I'm glad we're not facing the NFC South this year."

As this is a positive report, I fully expect everyone to high five this thread and sarcastically point out how FINALLY this guy GETS IT.

I've been saying this... But now that someone with credentials has said it... Everybody should jump on board!

I did learn quite a few interesting tidbits though. GREAT read!

Pi and swag for the dig

They're better, but not super bowl caliber brah. They're a couple of years away from real contention. I'd say around 2. If they can add 2 more pieces to the puzzle, I'd drink your cool-aid. Mainly at CB.

Agreed Ivan. I already stated that my SB talk was outta excitement and not genuine... I think next year they will really contend.

I've been saying it... idk why people can't figure it out. JR paid DWill as much, if not more, for who he is as a person than who he is as a player.
