Dwayne Bowe should be our #1 target this offseason.I don't see any #1 type WR in this draft,so we need to get a big target guy so Cam will have a jump ball type wr.

he just got IR'd leg I think. May be damaged goods next year

29 yr old WR who was out for the year is the new 50.

He's cheaper than the rest. The other WRs will demand top money.

If we go wr in free agency signing Jennings makes the most sense

How in the blue hell can we even afford these guys? Not only being able to afford them but they have to want to come to the Panthers. Let's not forget we are in cap hell and we are already 5 million over the cap for next year. Let's be rational guys.

Need to get one big FA(Wallace, Jennings or even Byrd). and build the rest through the draft. Signing all special teamers last season did not really help.

the cap can be handled to make room for guys to sign.(redskins) my 2 fa pick ups would Henry Melton and Jarius Byrd. both guys would help this defense.

I would also consider Corey Williams, DT for Detroit. He is scheduled to be a free agent after this season and is not expected to be retained following the recent emergence of Nick Fairley and after he missed most of this season due to injuries. I think at worst he could provide good depth for us if healthy and at best he could be a decent starter.

"Bowe is a garbage time stat padder..he is a red zone weapon but not the guy to partner with Cam. He is like Marshall in size but isnt as mentally tough..and that is saying a lot! Marshall at least wants to kill the guy covering him every play."

Are you high?

2007: 70 rec 995 yds 14.2 avg 5 TD

2008: 86 rec 1022 yds 11.9 avg 7 TD

2009: 47 rec 589 yds 12.5 avg 4 TD (hurt- played in only 11 games)

2010: 72 rec 1162 yds 16.1 avg 15 TD

2011: 81 rec 1159 yds 14.3 avg 5 TD

This kind of production coming without a legit #2 WR and during his 5 years in KC, the starting QBs have been:

Trent Green, Brodie Croyle, Damon Huard, Tyler Thigpen, Matt Cassel, Tyler Palko, Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn.

"Garbage time stat-padder..." Really? Looks rather productive to me....

I'd be willing to bet none of those players are on the panthers next season.

Yeah Bowe is a good NFL player and anyone who thinks otherwise needs to watch football.

The only thing that bugs me about him is he badically checked out on the Chiefs this year. He's probably gonna want Vincent Jackson money, too

First off, lock up Hardy. That's first and fuging formost. He brings an energy to this defense.

Secondly, resturcture some players like Dwill and Gross, free up some cap and keep the veteran around (i don't think you understand how valuable veteran leadership is on a young team trying to learn how to win an cutting/trading them wouldn't help.)

Third, get Byrd, we need a playmaker in the secondary.

Finally, both Jennings and Bowe are overrated. Jennings less so, talented and a great WR, but he's often injured an can't stay on the field, plus he's known for drops. He'll want some money too. Bowe is WAY overated though. Lazy as poo. He's Peppers as a WR. Great skillset but takes plays off, He's also gonna want BIG money. On top of that, they're both on the wrong side of 30. I'd rather take a nice young WR talent in the first two rounds to groom with Cam.

this. exactly this.

Bowe can play but like I said he quit on his team this year. He's going to be very very expensive as well.

Jennings has a huge red flag because of his health.
