Panthers Are Listening To Offer For J-Stew

[quote]According to Len Pasquarelli of The Sports Xchange, the Panthers will "definitely" listen to trade offers for Jonathan Stewart this offseason.
After signing Mike Tolbert, the Panthers quickly put out word that Stewart wasn't on the trade block, perhaps for fear of losing leverage. Per Pasquarelli, however, the Steelers could be a "sleeper" to make a run at Stewart, and "everyone" has made the Broncos the favorite to acquire the versatile, 25-year-old back. Pasquarelli does concede "there hasn't been anything serious yet"[/quote]

So they MIGHT listen to offers but haven't yet?

Reporters amuse me.

Based on speculation.

Very misleading thread title.

Exactly

His [i]opinion [/i]carries as much weight as anyone else's on here if he has nothing to back it up with.

I would hope they would listen to offers. What does Len Pastabelli expect us to do.

Just ignore the other 31 teams phone calls?

Marty Hurney is about to get a lesson on the devaluation of the RB position, something the rest of the league seems to already know.

Signing Tolbert invited the speculation. They were damned if they said anything and damned if they were silent on the trade matter. It wouldn't surprise me if they traded him, though I would be sad to see him go and hope they don't.

My unnamed source told me that he got an anonymous tip that said the Panthers FO is considering thinking about possible trades for a Stewart to be announced at later date.

The front may make a move if they are blown away by an offer that could be worked out.

Although I would hate it for this season, I STILL think that Stew gets traded before the draft. They can't afford to sign him long-term.

I still don't see a way that the Pantehrs can tie up nearly $20M per season in the RB position....and that is what they woudl have with DWill, Stew (under a new contract), and Tolbert.

I would hate to lose him....but I would rather get something now than watch him walk for nothing at the end of the season.

Yeah, which is evident by all of those huge deals teams have signed HBs to lately.

Exactly. Just like Hurney's mis-management of the Julius Peppers fiasco. We lost him and got absolutely nothing in return, when they knew beforehand he wouldn't sign.

Foster? Johnson? Peterson? Rice eventually? MJD eventually? Forte was tagged.

It's a myth that the position has been devalued. Plenty of GMs still see it as being an important position; if that wasn't the case, they wouldn't be getting the huge deals that they have and will.

Before any brings up the, "Well, how many backs have been taken in the top five lately?" logic, it doesn't work. The only reason that's been the case because there hasn't been a back good enough to go in the top five since 2008 with McFadden who was, SHOCKER, taken in the top five. Richardson has a shot to go in the top five because guess what? He's a top five quality back. The only people who see the position as devalued are television analysts who know nothing which is why they aren't official NFL scouts.

Peppers didn't give us an opportunity to trade him because he refused to sign the tender until after the deadline to trade tagged players.
