Ironically the "The 10 Worst Free Agent Signings" is airing on NFLN as I type this.

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.

Those were my thoughts. Thought it was a possiblilty we sign someone tomorrow.

You usually overpay if you pull the trigger right away. If you want a bargain you have to let the market establish their worth which is almost always less than they think they deserve.

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
