When was the last time our team has signed a big time F/A ? That has actually came in and made a

huge impact. Maybe it was Kevin Green ?

I always thought Ken Lucas was a big-time pickup. He had a couple of good years for us...that's the last FA splash I can really remember.

Mike Wahle.

Moose made a big impact.

Ken Lucas was good for a while.

Hopefully our huge contract signngs to our RBs being a bust and also the great year Vincent Jackson had after signing with the Bucs will open JR's eyes and make him realize its not always a sure thing to "re sign our core players, avoid Free Agents like the plauge."

I think Shockey was pretty good. Lucas had some good years here. Wahle never really lived up to expectations.

We will likely not have the cap space for a big time FA wanting $8M a year.

In his first few years, Hurney seemed to go get a good FA every year. He never went out and signed a top tier FA, but guys like Lucas, Wahle, and Hartwig. I think Hartwig was actually the last one he signed that other teams were pursuing, and maybe because he busted Hurney backed off them. Or it could have come from JR. We got Tyler Brayton (Raiders starter) in 2009, and that was it. Coincidentally, that was also the last season where JR's sons were running things, so the idea that management told him to cut it out may be valid.

If it is, then it will probably have bearing on how the next GM behaves (i.e., don't look for a Vincent Jackson type of signing any time soon). Or maybe Hurney just got sick of going after them.

    • I honestly thought this was going to be a McCaffery thread. 
    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
