Free Agency Thread

Figured I would start a Free Agency thread for tomorrow (know there is pinned Free Agency threads) to consolidate some stuff, but tomorrow is the day. Maybe a bit premature...but we can start a debate on who we could "realistically sign", if you think we actually might sign someone tomorrow (or be typical Panthers late to the party) or maybe just a poo thread where we can get pissed about the signings that we didn't get tomorrow.

Well anyway, win or lose at least we have the Kraken...

Hopefully not, but even if we don't have signings tomorrow we can know who is off the plate. And research a bit more. There will be signings eventually though.

Not signing a player tomorrow and not trying to sign a player tomorrow are two different things. I think we'll certainly try but the funds just aren't there.

The funds are likely there to get whoever you want. We can structure any contract to give us almost no cap the first year. We also can have a number of guys who we already have ready to restructure so when we sign a free agent we announce the restructure at the same time which gets us under the cap. Gettleman is likely to proceed cautiously given this is his first year. But don't assume we can't sign whoever we want because we can. Paying for it down the road is the bigger concern.

I'm thinking the Gross thing was brought up today to restructure b/c they have someone in line to do tomorrow.

I don't expect any news from the Panthers tomorrow, maybe by the end of the week we might hear names of players we might be interested in. Guys like S Patrick Chung or OG Chad Rhinehart.

Agreed, but he didn't seem to like the whole pay cut thing so he might of messed their plans up

Needs to be a really big discount since he has now had three surgeries on the same knee.

Good to know, not sure about the price. I've heard good things about him, didn't know about the three surgeries on his knee. Makes sense now about that TD tweet.

I want Canty badly. We missed out on Jenkins. Don't know who else is coming available tomorrow. This would shore up a need. Honestly signing Canty, Deangelo Hall, then drafting CB in 1st and DT in 2nd i think it'd be solid enough.
