If that was sarcasm? Very funny. Sounds just like the gloom and doomers.

JStew is on the last year of his contract, so we are in no big hurry to get him done. And when we do sign him, he will not take up the rest of the cap just by himself. We can sign JStew, and still have money.

As for Cam, we are two years from worrying about his contract. Just relax and enjoy the show.

Carolina has a reputation of taking care of their own. They are not going to change their culture. No need to put undo stress on yourself worrying about losing Stewy. If he wants to be here, he will be here. It is probably all in his hands.

The Panther Organization does not let one of their own get away.

Ok, that's it for now. And GOOOOOOOO CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Not about can we.... We could find away to sign Stewart. That money is better used on defense

I would try to sell J Stew on the idea that 5 years at $6 million per is better than 3 years at $7.5 million per, pointing out that he will likely enjoy a longer career here splitting carries.

I'm not sure it would work, but it's worth a try.

Splitting with Williams, Tolbert, and Cam....isn't really attractive for a lot of RBs. Stewart also is a WC kid. Williams is here cuz we paid him....Tolbert wanted to move home....why does Stewart want to stay if a contender will pay?

I don't know what Stew's priorities are. If he wants to maximize his earnings, then talking about career length is logical.

But you (CRA) may be right that he wants to rack up big yards as the guy and/or play on the West Coast.

I don't believe he's talked a lot about his motivations so it's hard to know how signable he is.

I thought someone said once that DWill's contract was heavily front loaded, and even cutting him after this season wouldn't be that bad of a hit

We will be keeping JStew, it would just be idiotic to let him go considering he's the best RB on the team and younger than DWill is anyways.

deangelo williams and jordan gross will likely not be on the team by the time cam re-signs his contract. we'll be fine.


And hopefully their replacements would be already on the team.

I love when people whine about other people's money


When it directly affects the product on the field that I and others spend OUR money on then people are well within their right to "whine"

It is a misconception that DWill's and CJ's contracts are front-loaded.

It just isn't true.

We already have cap issues for next year. Look for a restructure or big move for Jordan Gross next off season.

Stew is a tight lipped type of guy. I am sure very few people know his goals and agenda. But if he wants to remain a Panther, there is every posibility that he will.

Sometimes your team is out of balance. One side is better than the other. Most teams have this problem. You go about your busines and do your best to fix the weak link. The Panthers prefer to build through the draft. So trading Stew is probably not in the cards either.

I know the D is our achilles heel. Most people know. It is an ongoing process, that many see as vastly improved. I would say be patient, but I know that is a waste of time for some of you. You can only add so many pieces per year.

We have to learn to win with this team. As we grow and improve, the winning will come in bunches.

Just my thoughts. And GOOOOOOO CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The best teams aren't afraid to trade or let go of a player if it will negatively impact the overall health of the team. The Panthers have always struggled with whom to keep and whom to let go.

Stew should get the same contract as DWILL.
