Panthers Agree With Tolbert On 4 Year Deal

422 posts in this topic

yea leverage as in, we dont need you that much so we can only offer a fraction of what other teams might be able to offer.

Well sort of, but more like, "we're not going to obscenely over pay for you like we did with Williams because we have a decent back behind you, but we'll offer a competitive rate, take it or leave it."

Nope it was 7.7 this year and will likely inch up next year.

Jeez I already edited it. Jerk face ;)

either way, keeping him will be tough unless he just loves it here or nobody else finds him valuable

doubt that, likely one of the RB's would be a TE, and the one RB position would be Stew and D-Will interchanging

so you're saying its possible...lol

This smells like a big draft day trade.

So far. We are only bringing in lower level first rounders.

But I think this is for leverage on stew. We have to exercise an option for Tolbert after this season.

Very peculiar.

Stewart would net us a 3rd rounder at most. Teams just do not give high draft picks for RBs, especially used RBs. That being said, I bet we take that 3rd rounder... Stew and Tolbert are basically the same stylistically. No use having both of them on the roster. If I were Hurney, I'd trade DWill, and re-sign Stew, but I know that won't happen.

Not true at all. He was a first rounder to begin with who has outperformed his contract. I could see Fox or Ryan giving up a first for him. Particularly next year's.

we're really going to be like a college team if we keep all 3.

D-Wills contract is front loaded. After this year his contract won't have that much money left on it. We could release him, not saying its not entirely possible but I could see it happening.
