Free Agency Thread

227 posts in this topic

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...

This is gonna be an uneventful thread

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.

SPOILER ALERT!!! We sign no one tomorrow.

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 wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
