Ramses Barden looking for new start. Martellus Bennett resolved to his fate

66 posts in this topic

Find me 14 other wide outs who put up nearly 700 yards and four touchdowns.

Eric Decker, Lance Moore, Julio Jones, Mike Williams, Victor Cruz, Justin Blackmon, Randall Cobb, Miles Austin, Ty Hilton, Jeremy Maclin, Torrey Smith, James Jones, Sidney Rice. Antonio Brown. Andre Roberts.

All i have put up better stats that you just stated and none are number 1 receivers. I can keep going if you want.

Some people are not convinced that he is a true WR2. Perhaps he could demand a higher salary, but I kinda doubt it. Perhaps he'd relish the thought of playing with Cam and the Panthers.

WR2? You are talking about Martellus Bennett right? Believe me, I'm a huge fan of Bennett and would love it if we got him for a reasonable salary.

Correct me if I'm wrong, just going out on a limb here, but it seems like you're assuming that they go the free agency route to find a wide receiver.

I see a few guys that can be a great number three or even a very good number two in the NFL Draft that can be taken in the second or fourth round. I also see a handful of wide receiver that the Panthers could take in the first to be Smith's successor.

If the Panthers truly believe they are on the verge of the playoffs, a championship, or whatever; then look for proven veterans to come in at the vet minimum (i.e. Canty) instead of young and unproven players (i.e. Barden).

I don't know what we are going to do---which direction we are going. Just thinking of options.

Not saying that there aren't any, but I don't know of any WRs off the top of my head who is deemed to have WR1 potential in the draft who won't be gone by probably early, perhaps late, second round. Moreover, I don't see us picking up a guy in FA that is considered to possess that type of talent either. That being said, why not upgrade the WR2s, 3s and 4s if you can do so on the cheap?

Sorry. I meant TE1. I fixed it.

Because there are no WR2 or WR3 that are a significant upgrade over what we have.

Patterson, Allen, and possibly Austin (as a slot, think Smith and Welker) could all be number one's.

Easiest way to see who is right against who is wrong is go directly off of team's depth charts, not based off of opinion. So let's take a look shall we...

Julio Jones, Sidney Rice, Antonio Brown, Victor Cruz, Justin Blackmon, and Jeremy Maclin are all listed as one's based on teams depth chart's.

I don't think that us as football forum geniuses can say with all surety that Barden would not be a significant upgrade over what we have (like we have so much). Anyway, like I alluded to, Patterson, Allen and Austin will be gone before we pick in round 2, so if we don't pull the trigger, we aren't getting a WR1 from the draft unless we get lucky (much like we did with 89).

Well, since you are more concerned with being right, on a technicality, let me tell you that you are absolutely correct. You deserve a cookie. But... then let's take the earlier list and take the ones that apparently aren't technically listed as WR1s and add, Roddy White, Golden Tate, Mike Wallace, Hakeem Nicks, Cecil Shorts, and Desean Jackson. I suppose you think that LaFell can currently take his place among that number...?

Come on, dude.
