Beason's knee "flared up" this week; Onatolu to IR

73 posts in this topic

A few quick points...

1) Onatolu to IR frees up a spot for Gettis. So it looks like AE survives yet again.

2)Beason's contract has 3 more years after this one. Should we want to do something with him, we have to consider the $12 million in bonus that has not yet hit the cap.

3) For Rayzor, no, Hurney does not injure the players, but he did sign Beason to a $50 million deal when he was already dealing with ankle problems. Those same problems kept him out of all training camp last year and finally ended up with him tearing his Achilles.

That was one of those signings that I thought was too hasty. Not that Beason's isnt a good player; however, with a new coaching staff coming in and not fully knowing what defensive scheme would be implemented, it wouldn't have hurt to have given him another season to see how well he'd fit in with the new system, recover from injury, etc. Hindsight is 20/20, but this Hurney and staff should have put more thought into this decision.

Thomas Davis is our best LB, and I think he should be at the Will spot going forward. Robinson wanted no piece of TD after awhile, and is a major reason why Kuechly had a lot of success against Seattle.

Well, there is no debate IMO....best WLB on this team is TD. Best MLB? Now is Luke. By the time Beason fully recovers....Luke may have continued to improve and Beason simply never is at a postion to overtake Luke.

Said it pre draft, based on they way Luke projected.....if he turns out to be THAT, that will be a better MLB than Beason. Let him earn the job this year. Beason will take WLB when healrhy bc TD ain't gonna last seasons.

Well to be fair none of us thought TD would last a game, let alone games.

The man has more than proven to me that we don't know what to expect from him. I wouldn't give him a huge contract or rely on him 100% but I certainly wouldn't give WLB to Beason just because he gets healthy. If he outperforms TD then sure, but TD is a beast there and he could last a lot longer than any of us think he will.

Absolutely. No one said TD was going to come back and be as good as he ever was. It was impossible to even consider. Yet here he is, playing very fast and strong.

The front office did the right thing bringing in linebacker help. That doesn't mean there weren't other options. We could have signed a FA backer and gone DL or DB in the first, but in any case they could not count on what we've seen from Thomas.

Laughing at all the huddles on here who were bitching about possibly taking Kuechly in the draft. I recall most if you claiming that Beadon was super human and would miraculously recover 100%.

I feel like I've heard this tune before. Sounds a lot like the one that was played back in 55's time.

Because the only way to address the RB and LB positions is with first round picks, right MadHatter?

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
