I'm not sure why we make weekly posts about Otah, Carolina is in a perfect situation with the dude. If he doesn't perform, we are done with him at the end of the season. If he performs outstanding, we trade him because you never dude who only performs well in his contract year, and get some value for him in a trade or let another team buy him outright. And for whatever reason you don't believe that Bell can't improve, which I guess means that Cam can't improve either.


Do you understand the concept of Free Agency. As chef17 stated, if we don't re-sign him HE WALKS. There will be no trading of Otah, unless we sign him to a big contract and then trade him....which is highly, highly unlikely.

Ok, my bad, I misunderstood, but either way if he performs well this year. I would still get rid of him. There is no way I would sign him to a big contract if I was Carolina. I've seen it in too many sports, where the athlete, who is not performing up to his potential, has one great season at the end of his contract, the local team and several others offer up big dollars, the player goes to the highest bidder and sucks for the rest of his career.

If he doesn't practice in training camp we will likely cut him to save the salary given we won't be resigning him to another contract. Chances are we are giving him every opportunity to be ready for camp right now. Hopefully he is cutting weight and working out so he is ready. If he can't get motivated in a contract year, he can't be motivated, period........

As he is a restricted free agent we will likely allow him to test the market and then have the option to match the offer. I would doubt no matter how well he plays we will give him a long term deal with no incentive based contract unless we are convinced everything is fine. He seems to be in Rivera's doghouse right now. We are already up against the cap next year.

Because most of the teenagers in this forum don't know how to express any opinion without talking about how terrible a player is.

..never mind they actually have no fuging clue as to where his status lies, what his injury is, when his rehab completes, or what the current prognosis is.

..they are just bandwagoning on something negative so they can sound like they have a critical opinion which in reality is nothing but a feigning attempt to demonstrate that they have any intelligent insight whatsoever, on anything.

a.k.a. "I'm not stupid. I complain about stuff."
