The shelf life of a CB is short.

RBs and WRs are shorter, but that being said, solid WRs and CBs have long careers. Most WRs and CBs wash out because they suck or wash out at the NFL level, so it appears their shelf life is short, but the ones who are good last a long time.

I would never cut Gamble unless his injuries prevented him from making a full come back.

In terms of trades, no teams have called Panthers about any specific players (only positions). All quiet so far. Trade deadline Thursday.

NO WAY in HELL Stewart restructures. He just got the new contract. Its nutty as squirrel sh!t to think otherwise.

I would agree with you if this team wasn't about to be under new management. No player or contract is safe, even ones just signed this year. I would hope that both Williams and Stewart would restructure from their 7-8 mil/year deals to something more in line not with their talent but their carries, say 5-6 mill/year. With TD restructuring because of his injuries and Tolbert leaving money on the table to play here, I don't think this is unreasonable.

I want a receiver

It's sad that it took for Hurney to get fired to make some damn moves. Downright sad

Why would he restructure a deal he JUST got? He'll get paid if he remains on the team or is cut by new managment. DLo is a different story, but Stewart will get his money regardless at this point.

Cuz he got paid. After an 8 figure signing bonus, I doubt he cares much if he gets 5 or 3 mil in salary a year. Giving a big contract then restructuring it seems to be a great way to make a player seem wanted and wealthy while still managing the cap.

I hope we don't do this poo. The best thing to do is keep him and try to restructure both(stew,d-will) of their contracts. They need to restructure Gamble, Beason, Anderson, and Gross. I know Stew can be a featured back by himself, but his injury history scares me. Stew is better on the screens and blocking, but D-Will is more likely to break for a big run.

We don't need to restructure Williams we need to deal him to get rid of him.

Plenty of capable RBs that we can bring up for cheap.

We need to quit over investing in the backfield. Build like a real team

LMFAO....
[/quote] Hey, I'm just saying. I don't think we should trade him. but if we did at least get a player that you can get your monies worth out of. Cause we sure ain't getting it out of Dlo right now. and would never get it out of nelson either. And lets be honest since you think its so funny. but Cobb can run the wildcat just as good if not better than dlo cause he's also a passer. you would accidentally get your money back off a guy like him. the guys a workhorse and any team would be lucky to have him.

They'd laugh in our face...an up and coming star for a nearly 30 year old back. We'd be robbing them blind on that trade. You're over valuing DLo, by a mile. DLo has a handfull of years left in the league. Cobb has a decade left.



And for the record I didn't mention trading for Jordy either...that's laughable as well. I said we could get James Jones that's closer to an equal trade. In the other scenarios GB would be the clear loser in the deal.

How many of you "we need to trade DWill" "plenty of RB's out there for cheap" guys were also foaming at the mouth to sign Stewart?

Neither of them is earning his keep at the moment. They never were goint to since we are not playing Fox Ball any longer.

Love the way the tune changes around here once we fall on our face with cap issues and such. Predictable
