Your entire argument including your OP is riddled with loaded questioning and contradictory claims. Beyond that, if you think like you said that this franchise has never made a bad cut then you're delusional. Every franchise makes cuts that they were better off keeping, and in a ten year time span, I doubt you can find one team that didn't cut a single player that they could've used in the future or who contributed somewhere else.

Keep in mind if you respond to this I actually support the Panthers' decision to cut McClain.


It was a very short sighted post. I was bored this morning and killing time before work. I should have thought it through better and I did not. I'm guilty. Find another poster on here that will show such humility and I will give you pie and rep.

I will even give you pie and rep anyway becuase we have had our differences before but yet are still able to have civilized convo in threads likes this,where as others seem to allow internet forum beef to carry over into every other thread and I would like to set a postive example for my fellow panther fans.

The only CUTS that bit us in the ass were Hate, Tony Brown and Evan Mathis...which I cannot fuging believe. Those guys are the only guys that I have ever said I wished were still panthers. The rest of the CUTS stayed scrap heap for the rest of their careers

Here is the question that needs to be asked; Has any drafted players released before the end of their rookie contract ever go on to be a productive player in another team?

There have been a couple but guys like Mathias and Butler were never a questioned cut at the time. Haye was one of those cuts that most wished he'd made the team but no one was really jumping off buildings over the cut.

The majority of cuts from across the league that end up having productive careers elsewhere are undrafted players. The Ravens cut James Harrison twice and the Steelers once for that matter before he became the DPOY. A combination of the investment, or lack thereof, and the overall lack of scouting on many of these guys lets them slip through quite often.

Are you asking league wide or just Carolina?

There have been productive players cut before reaching the end of a rookie deal and gone on to be productive players.

Can anyone name a player we cut in the last 10 years that came back to haunt us? Has there ever been a time where history has proven we cut the wrong guy in the last 10 years? Can you think of any players that went on to have a successful career after being cut by us in the last 10 years?

Once you get done with your google searches and come to realize its never happened can you please explain the uproar over Mcclain?

EDIT just so nobody misses it:









You guys named a bunch of players that would have never contributed to the roster they were cut from. Yes some of these guys bounced from a few teams and put together a few good seasons collectvely, but we can't just stash players on our roster for years at a time until we have an acutal use for them and hope they have developed by then.

Hell we could have had 90% of the players just by picking them up off waivers or signing them after being cut by other teams.

Javon Haye Wiki http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Jovan_Haye

"Carolina Panthers
Haye was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the sixth round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He only played two games for the Panthers and was cut on September 2, 2006.
[edit] Cleveland Browns

Haye was signed by the Cleveland Browns on September 3, 2006. On September 12, 2006 he was released, but was signed to Browns practice squad on September 14, 2006.
[edit] Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Haye was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 25, 2006. In his first season with the Bucs he played in nine games and recorded 17 tackles. In 2007 he became a full-time starter for the Bucs, starting all 16 games. He finished the season with 68 tackles and six sacks. In 2008 he started 14 of 15 games, recording 33 tackles and no sacks.
[edit] Tennessee Titans

On March 2, 2009, Haye agreed to a four-year, $16 million contract with the Tennessee Titans. He was waived on August 29, 2011.
[edit] Detroit Lions

On December 9, 2011 Haye signed with the Detroit Lions. Four days later, On December 13, 2011 He was released by the Detroit Lions.[1]
[edit] Second Stint with Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Haye resigned with the Buccaneers on December 19, 2011"
So Haye had 1 good year as a starter but he was not going to unseat Kris Jenkins and do that here

Tony Brown

http://en.wikipedia....erican_football)
"

So Brown developed some consistency with the Titans. His numbers are no better than what Neblett put in half the snaps last year or Damione Lewis or Kris Jenkins did when we cut him in favor of them


Evan Mathis
http://en.wikipedia....iki/Evan_Mathis
"Carolina Panthers (20052007)So Mathis goes and spends 3 years with the bengals and does essentially nothing and has 7 starts over 3 years. Meanwhile we had Wharton, then he finally has a hell of a year in 2011. He was available at this point so we could have had him. Now we Amini who I would say looks likes he off to a much better career start than Mathis.


Great thread!

No just in Carolina and so Hurney has been fairly good about not cutting drafted players that pan out on other teams. Some teams are better at this than others but no team is great at holding onto all of the talented UDFA that come through camp.

That's not to say Hurney doesn't have his faults. But if he cuts a drafted player to me that says a lot based only on history. Of course now that I say this McClain will go on to be a HOFer...LOL

Nice thread. I was thinking about this earlier. Has anyone said Jarret Bush? He has been locked in as the nickel corner out in a pretty solid GB secondary since we cut him in 2006 as an UDFA. The other DTs and Mathis were nice players but Bush has always been the player I see play and wish we could have kept him.

Once again though, nobody is losing their job over cutting a UDFA nickel corner.

Are you sure? If I remember correctly, Davis was drafted as a Safety to play LB the year after Spoon left. Anderson was a third rounder, I think? I wouldn't consider that as replacing Spoon.

davis was to replace fields.
