I see very few upgrades through the FA market.Where is the cap genius everyone keeps referring to? I did see where Gross has agreed to restructure.

Hurney is not that great...not awful either.

I wasnt expecting a splash but this looks more like a splatter.

True. I thought the Panthers' first day of free agency was nearly perfect. We cut Wharton--had to do that. I am pleased with the Davis deal. We re-signed Hangartner--hope it was not expensive. Hangartner is a smart backup center who can play both guard spots. This is important becuase our center calls a lot up front with Cam at QB. If Kalil goes down, we need a savvy vet.

We do not want to get involved in these high-dollar bidding wars. Remember, the longer we wait, the lower the price. If we can grab a stating G and maybe a solid LB to play behind Beason or Davis, we did well.

Don't forget...it isn't like Carolina's only chance to pickup guys to help them is today.. Lots of guys that can fix some of our needs (short term fixes) won't appear until closer to the season when teams start shaping their roster and making cuts.

Often teams will cut good/decent vets then b/c they have seen enough from the youth to gamble w/ them at that point.

people that buy early in FA overpay in FA.

sorry, but carl nicks isn't worth $10mil a year.

VJax isn't worth the money that he got paid, esp. when he's going to be part of an offense that won't be throwing the ball much.

also, remember: teams that are the big winners in FA are rarely, if ever, winners when it matters.

The Panthers always stay out of the initial frenzy and over paying of players that goes on the first few days of free agency and start to work once the dust settles.

Even so because we locked down our core last season I don't expect us to be very active in free agency even later.

Just relax. We have several players coming back from the IR on defense and a long draft where a lot of stuff can happen. Over spending in the FA market is a recipe for disaster and other teams will be releasing quality players later to sign their FAs or draftees, whom we can look at when they become available.

this OL FA class is going to be opening wide up soon, mainly because the draft class is so good. the best part is, the ones hitting the market will be incredibly affordable because the market will be flooded.

we'll see the same thing with WRs.
