Trading J-stew would be hard to do imo, the market for RB's is scarce. We'd be lucky to get a 2nd rounder.


i wonder where he would rank amongst other rookie rb's in this draft - would teams have richardson more valuable or anyone else? i dont think we entertain too many trade options with Stewart this year, I think we plan on having him contribute big time this year. Right now, next year is next year.

surprised no one has speculated Stewart reuniting with Fox for The Golden Calf of Bristol as Cam's backup

Why do people think Williams will restructure? That means we shift some of his 2013 money onto 2014 and 2015. His salary bonus costs us 3.2 million every year which won't change. So next year if he converted some of his 4.75 salary to a signing bonus then he would still cost us 5 or 6 million next year instead of 7.75 million but his signing bonus money would be over 4 million and his cap hit for 2014 and 2015 would exceed 10 million. If you say then we would cut him, he would cost 10 million in dead cap space to cut which even as a June 1 cut would cost us 5 million for 2 years of dead space. Would you restructure for a signing bonus of 3 million if it virtually assured you would be cut the following year? Even if he agreed to lower his salary in 2014 or 2015 his 3.2 million in signing bonus cap every year would continue.

If we trade him the signing cap money escalates which this year is 14.6 million (9.6 cap and 5 million guaranteed), next year is 9.6 million, in 2014 it is 6.4 million and in 2015 will be 3.2 million.

People need to calm down with all this "trading Stew or D. Will" talk. Its NOT going to happen. Remember when the Panthers took J. Stew in the first round once D. Will got named starter? Everyone was freaking out thinking DeAngelo was gone but no one could have predicted that our running game was going to be the best in the NFL that following season. People also fail to realize that this team had 3 rushers last season. D.Will, J.Stew and CAM! Having Tolbert just adds more insurance in case any one of the Double Trouble goes down, and keeps Cam from having to take all those unnecessary hits. Plus, having a FB is awesome for a running game. RB have their best seasons when they have a FB blocking for them. So everyone needs to calm down, sit back and watch the show our offense is going to put on this coming season. I can't wait to watch firsthand the Panthers v. Chargers game this season. It's gonna be epic!

What does Mike Tolbert signing mean for CAR 'Double Trouble' backfield? Sources don't expect Jonathan Stewart trade.


Can we shut up now?

don't expect means they aren't doing it for anything less than a second or first rounder, which isn't happening

wait... how did you go from the article to not expecting a trade... it clearly said they may trade stewart before he enters the final year of his contract?

it also says a trade HIGHLY unlikely .. IMO they signed Tolbert to make up for the absence of Shockey in the offense (and no I'm not saying he'll be playing TE lol)
