I think Gettleman will do everything he can to acquire reasonable talent that fits under the salary cap, but whether they are cheap, inexpensive, or affordable.. signing them, much less finding solid starters is the problem. Including those without injury history? good luck...
There are very few teams with cap space to pay even the best guys. If guys want to work, they will be signing one year modest contracts. The stars will still get paid. But the rest will be fighting for a lot less.
So you are saying we are not going to be signing anybody worth a poo? Even if Gettlemen can find them, they won't sign here? Too me, this offseason will offer a good glimplse on how we are viewed by players around the league.
Can we get a good RG to come here for less than he would normally make? Or a DB with tread still on the tire? How about that TE that wants more catches? Would he come here for a little less? In other words, has Carolina become a destination yet? Do players want to come here and be a part of the Cam and Luke show?
We don't need many. Just the right ones willing to take what we can give them. Why not?
