Panthers Agree With Tolbert On 4 Year Deal

422 posts in this topic

The bigger question is whether this has been in the works since before Williams signed his deal when Stewart wouldn't negotiate. It isn't whether we want Stewart but does he want us??

Tolbert is a big boy, 5'9 247.

It does look like Stewart is on the trading block, possibly for a 3rd rounder.

IF Stewart wants to be here and signs long-term then this could be just a Goodson move or to prepare for post Williams. But I think his deal will have to get done this year not next.

Tolbert could be a starter on other teams, I doubt he agreed to sign with carolina unless he was going to get the ball alot. I dont see him just being the fullback. With Cam running the ball as much as he does, there will not be a great deal of touches for stewart, dwill, and tolbert. Someones getting traded.

Trade stewart to the Browns and swap draft picks in the process, all the while we grab claiborne. I can dream right???

Highly doubt he turned down more money just to come here and be a #3.

I don't think Tolbert was brought in to be a RB. I think they are trying to create a perminant solution to the H-Back mismatch that they were using all the time last year(playing a TE in the backfield). He has the size to be a good blocker as a FB, and on passing downs he has shown that he can catch the ball well out of the backfield. He was a backup last year and still ended up with 422 yards receiving. Once we find out how much money he costs, we will get some clarity as to what role is going to play. Less than 2 mil/year, Fullback, anything more may be the signal that Stewart might be out the door.

Let me shed some wisdom with the Tolbert signing. If we can't get a first rounder (and I personally wouldn't do it unless it was a high first rounder) for Stewart, no way do we trade this cat. I rather have Stewart with this backfield (what team can say they have three great runners?) for one year, than to trade him for a third rounder, and we select another Fua with the pick. If we learned anything with Hurney, he is only great with first round picks. After that, he's hit and miss.

By the way, if this three back field we have right now is great this year, I'm 400% sure D-Will will restructure his contract to keep this thing alive for the long run. The average career for RB is four years. It's possible for us to keep this backfield going for years to come, making RB history in terms of health! So let's make history, not trade away history for another Sione Fua. (I love you Sione!)

400%? Seems high.

Why do you think Stewart isn't willing to renegotiate his contract and is holding out until his big payday? They are going to do what is best for them. This business for them. You think Wharton left bc he though going forward late in his career he could find a better pony than Cam? These guys are looking out for themselves.....there kids.....and there kids kids.

Too often people assume players are going to make sacrifices for the team. Look at Brees....with all the absurd cash he is being offered is he trying to do a Saints friendly deal?
