It's about time! But that must mean we have a few big cuts/trades on the way as well. It will be nice to add some talent to our "Draft Dynasty".

free agency should be the primary means of addressing needs, not the draft.

Don't draft for need, draft the BPA no matter what. The correct way of conducting a draft, take the BPA even if it's a team strength.

"With the Giants, people thought we were crazy for drafting defensive ends. We drafted (Mathias) Kiwanuka and we drafted JPP (Jason Pierre-Paul), and everyone's saying, ‘My God, when's it going to stop?' But if that's the best player available, you take him. Nothing like competition."

this is actually a best standard practice in the nfl. if you can fill your needs with good, proven guys, the draft is simply a bpa picnic

And that's how it should be. Anyone think the comments about making the cap good for the future to come means ALOT of players with bad contacts being dumped?

I'll wait and see who he has in mind for his FA list before I praise him.

Total opposite of Hurney who would pass on free agents who would signifcantly help the team because they had the nerve to ask for a price that is reasonable.

yeah one or two but you cant build a team through free agency, you build a team by drafting impact/high ceiling players.

We'll use Free Agency to put the team in position to take the best player available in the draft.

See, this is one of those sort of statements that by rights ought to be greeted with "Well duh, of course that's what he's gonna do. That's what you're supposed to do."

Over the past ten years though, that was definitely not something that Panther fans could assume would happen :(
