You expect James Anderson to get released?

yep.

i expect that they'll work something out with beason and anderson will be a casualty.

Vasquez would be a great addition but he might be the best FA guard on the market this year. Is he really that affordable?


Guards are relatively cheap. Heres a breakdown of the average cap hits of the top 5 per position(which he's not a top 5 guard). Also LG is generally much more expensive and he's a RG.

The short term one year contracts Gettleman spoke of are genius in the fact that you can fill a need for a year until the next draft with out tying your hands for too long.

yep. it eliminates a lot of the pressure of having to draft for needs and just get the best players/playmakers.

i just don't trust rookie linemen to not look bad their first year. were it up to me interior linemen would always be vets. i'm not big on drafting any of them, esp. early. i'm even less enthusiatic about starting them early. OT the only benefit of drafting one early is cost vs. picking up a vet. the rest of the guys i'd just rather we keep putting vets who won't get pushed around and make stupid rookie mistakes.

Anybody go from 6 to midnight at the click of this page? Have to admit I'm starting to get that "feeling". Free agency might finally come back to Charlotte!

i would love for us to answer these guys with vets via FA or trade for late round picks(when/if needed):
Punter
Kicker
Center
Guard
Tight End
DT
Running Back

and then these be what we use the draft for (when/if needed):
Safety
Linebacker
Cornerback

Offensive Tackle

A Canty type guy would be nice man. Solidify the D through free agency and draft offense.


Resign Dwan, too.

Dwan and Canty - use a later pick on a DT that can rotate in.

Draft OL in the first.

I want Patterson or Floyd in the first. Warmack if he falls.

i don't know...i think we can let dwan go. we picked up that run stuffer, colin cole, who could fill the hole we need filled on rushing downs...line him up with canty on rushing downs and bring in alexander and shift hardy inside for passing downs. or other things. we can do without dwan, imo. if we can keep him, though, i wouldn't be upset. he was good in passing situations. if we could rotate dwan in passing sitautions and cole for rushing and have them line up with canty, who can do it all, that would be ideal.

i'm getting the feeling that all three of those guys will be gone by #14.

I agree 100% with some exceptions being made based upon value(such as Star miracously falling to us at 14).

not that we didn't expect this, but there isn't a snowball's chance in hell Gamble doesn't get cut

he could always restructure, we be like pay cut down to $2 mil a year or we cut you and you get nothing, we don't have to out right cut him but its the most likely route

I still think Jesse Williams is going to fly up everyone's big board after the combine, and deservingly so. He's not all combine numbers like Poe even though he night break his bench press record.

I don't really like Vacarro but that could be a guy we take if (god forbid) Patterson/Floyd are gone.
