Well there is a chance Jimmy could be released at anytime. You never know what will happen. Only day 2 of FA.

You should probably calm down before u pop a blood vessle in your forehead.

Take your medication and have a cup of coffee. Relax... Breathe...
Repeat until desired results are achieved.

And we kept Jimmy because we need a back up QB, and he knows the system. I don't believe Jimmy is going anywhere tbh

because hurney still believes in clausen and that he still has value. he may eventually be traded, cutting clausen now would be rash. when carolina finds a backup qb that fits in their style of offense, then you will see clausens exit.

The team actually likes Clausen a lot, he's the backup. Anderson was a one year thing, at least that's what I thought when they made the deal. Teach the two young guys for a season then sign somewhere else with a chance to start or something.

They may be working on finding a trade.

The flaw in your comment is we need a qb.....where is the qb?

There is a shortage of QBs in the league. If there is no huge roster bonus, you let him go through the preseason. If he looks good, you immediately have suitors. If not, a million dollar third string QB is not the end of the world.

Now, before people childishly start babbling about how bad he was in 2010, remember the conditions. We should be better on the OL and ay WR. A good half in preseason, and we could get a second or third rounder for him. He needs to be in a West Coast Offense anyway
