Panthers Agree With Tolbert On 4 Year Deal

I think we are just going to go with a three back rotation similar to a lot of teams.

three back rotations generally involve a bunch of okay RBs all with a niche. Not 2 super studs, one solid RB....and then Cam Newton on top.

as our roster stands now, what makes up our running attack is really like nothing a team has ever put together....

People.. We have an OC who will create ways to get the FB involved. I really don't think hes coming in here as Stewart's replacement. Tolbert will be asked to do a bunch of crazy things with all of these formations Chud has.It simply expands the offense from what it already is. We could only do so much with Brockel.

Does anyone see where Im coming from?

Also brings a lot of productivity to all special teams units. Could see some of Newton/Williams/Stewart/Tolbert all on field at once

Add Smith and Olsen, defenses won't know what to do.

I know Im in the minority here but if we can get a 1st outta Stewart, I would be ecstatic with this move. Tolbert is a poor mans Stewart so there wouldn't be a huge amount of dropoff. Not to mention Stewart could be one of the few featured backs in the NFL if he goes to the right team. His talents are wasted here. If we could recoup a 1st after using him for 4 years then win win IMO.

Assuming that we keep all these RB's on the team, our Offense is absolutely STACKED, unlike any team ever IMO.

Wonder what the terms are. If we got somebody like this for a couple mil a year then I am definately on board. Hopefully Marty didn't overspend as he is sometimes prone to doing.

Well, I sure as Hell HOPE and PRAY that we keep all 3. It will provide depth at the position in the event of an injury.

I'm hoping it's Goodson, I mean I love they guy, and he's done everything that we have asked for him to do, but Tolberts just waaaay better.

Most exciting part: He left $1million on the table to come and play HERE!! This is a great sign.

It would really kill me to lose either DeAngelo or J-Stew. I don't see how or why we'd get rid of any of them. Think about how young they all are. Splitting carries could extend all of their careers over the next four years. Williams may be 30 next year, but he doesn't have the wear and tear of a normal 30 yr old RB.

Praying that this is as awesome as I think it is, and that all these people calling for trades and or cuts are just the dumb morons that I think they are.

What sucks is that this only makes a bit of sense if they trade Stewart and I'd hate to see him go. Trade Stewart and maybe find a way to trade up for someone they like such as Claiborne or Blackmon?

That is exactly what it is. Rumor was Stewart was not willing to sign last year. We saw this play out with Peppers. This time they are likely not going to do nothing. Either Stewart signs this off-season or signals he seriously wants to stay. If he doesn't and it appears he is gone, then we are better off getting something for him versus nothing. Tolbert just guarantees we have some leverage now.
