I don't really give a poo who they cut, so long as they are making an improvement to the team. I just hope that Norman can lock down that #2 CB position, so that next year's draft, we get a first round DT that will actually have the chance of being a beast for us for years to come.
Tired of our DLine looking like a NY Subway turnstile...hopefully R-Ed and D-Ed can fix this for us.
Herein lies the problem. There are three basic ways to add personell. Draft, FA, and Trade.
Where we will draft next year, high 20s, MAY yeild a DT. But, he will basically be a 2nd, as the pickings start to thin by then. So you may not get that dominant DT you are looking for.
As for FA. This may just be a possibiltiy next year. If Rivera is pleased with the other two levels, and the right guy becomes available, we may just invest in an elite young DT to put us over the top. I think we will be adding one very good FA next year. And if Rivera thinks it is a DT. I am all for that.
Trades are rare. Especially for top shelf talent. It is just one of those practices the Panthers rarely use. But I will add, that this regime seems to be willing to upgrade when options become available. So a trade is not out of the question.
We are going in the right direction. We are willing to upgrade. We are already knocking on the door. The future starts next week. And it looks a lot better than it did 6 months ago. But no where near as bright as where we are heading.
