Panthers or other teams, post here.

Teams can officially begin signing veteran players (not subject to waivers) as of 10pm tonight.

If we sign Meriweather, I'll be giddy. Not because he's as good as I thought he was when I woke up this morning, but it sure would be something fun to speculate on.

It's public knowledge for most by now but just to be clear vets with 4 or more years of service that got "cut" are who can sign anywhere as of 10 p.m today. Those with less are subject to the waiver wire and the teams who they are awarded to will be announced at 4 tomorrow. of course automatically get whoever we want due to our record last year.

Don't know if I want Harris, but there are some names I hope to see.

No idea if anything happens tonight, but the current configuration of the roster makes it look like they plan to make some moves.

Let's hope by this time tomorrow we're like a bunch of kids on Christmas day.

I've got a feeling that we won't be seeing much action tonight...

I think Marty will prefer to go after young guys on waivers first (with hopes of filling in spots, expecting they have potential, and we'll develop them like draftees), it kind of falls into line with our personnel philosophy.

Then he may go after the vets later if he's not happy with what we have. I can see Tommie Harris being an immediate option though because he's been released twice in one year, price is probably pretty low.

Very possible.

Won't be too surprised if some other teams make a move or two tonight though.

Good news is he knows exactly who he will be awarded via waivers already, unlike other GMs, so he can offer contracts to vets tonight to fill any other holes he wants.

I still don't think we will hear anything tonight, but this is an advantage.
