Obviously not enough for the coaches to bring in a potential replacement for him, and Rivera has done nothing but praised Godfrey since he got here. Does that answer your question?

Rivera praises everyone that wants to play football and isn't a kicker...you haven't figured that out yet?

They need to get rid of Martin. As the other poster pointed out...contract is coming up. No way Carolina would have much of a leg to stand on and not offer him comparable cash to Godfrey. They simply replace him..

But they overpaid Godfrey...simple and plain as Cam says

it's not like we brought in highly regarded FA's...we took scraps and hoped...this is one of those

situations where it may be good, or it may be a little less bad.

Nakamura is not scraps. He was a solid back-up in a team stacked with safeties....and played behind maybe the best safety to ever play the game. He delivered for Bsltimore every chance he was asked to play. He was a good player on a team with great players at his position.

All he needed was an opportunity.

We paid Godfrey because offenses can't see him. He is a secret weapon,they can see Martin so he offers nothing while Naka is all ninja stealth like and sneaks up on the opposition. The panthers have always been fond of safetys who weren't really there.

Now that we have Martins replacement, we need to find Godfrey's.

We don't know what he is beyond his ST play realistically

No S on this team has had a window of play as good as Martin his rookie year.....which is sad.

I like the new guy though. No reason not to yet

I find it funny that some people can't see the strategy here. They made a choice and paid CG instead of Martin. Now you bring in a guy cheaper to take his spot. Even thoe he might not be the better player.

We don't get in bidding wars. We offer you good money if you deserve it. If you go somewhere else and their willing to grossly overpay you, then we let them go.

They couldn't afford him because they choose to pay Morgan. They couldn't pay them both. So we let Spoon go.

Theres Rivera's typical compliments and then theres the praise that he's been giving on Godfrey. You yourself have noted this in previous post. Wether or not this translates on the field remains to be seen. But camp wise he has c earned his starting role.

If they didnt want to pay homeboy and he was worth a damn they would use him up now and tell him to fug off at seasons end.

While giving no playing time to his replacement???? Yeah that seem smart.

Sorry.

I just don't buy that there is an updated, accurate official depth chart out there in preseason prior to game/scrimmage #3.

Observations that Martin has dropped may be accurate or may only be accurate until Nakamura misses two tackles next game/scrimmage. Position coaches are playing with lineups and playing with heads. And those heads are not just limited to the heads on the rosters. They are playing with ours as well.
