We Have To Find A Way To Keep Beast and Gamble

Build on offense through the draft and FA

We have to keep Gamble as I watch this Falcons game. I'm not too knowledgeable on contracts though like some

I'm no expert on the cap either, but I believe:

Cut Gamble=Save a lot

Trade Beason for whatever you can get=Save a lot

A lot of guys may end up joining gamble on the chop block. I don't think we can afford to cut Beason. Penalty is too much.

As far on on the field play, I would love to keep both. Beason and Gamble would make our defense better. But with the pickup of LK, Beason is not someone we must keep. If him being gone helps the cap numbers, then its something we have to do. Same with Gamble, although I think we need him a little more than Beason.

Gamble is about done...time to cut bait and draft our first promising young corner since we drafted Gamble.

I'd agree to keep Beason with a different contract. But paying 50 mil to a linebacker who is oft-injured and already on the smaller side as far as LBs go...not a fan of doing that.

You are correct on gamble but cutting/trading beason costs more that keeping him because his remaining bonus money >what he counts this coming year.

    • 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.
