So JR is paying Gettlemen how much to do absolutely nothing except restructure the naka contract?

lawl then there's our secondary especially if we taking a WR at 14. I'm at the point now where we have to, need to, and must trade back to get more picks.


It is part of Gettleman's master plan create so many holes that any BPA in the draft also fills a need.

Dwan wont be easily replaced. We haven't had a DT with 6 sacks since Jenkins left. He needs to be a priority. I figure a 2 year deal for 6 million could land him. The cap hit could be 2 million year 1.

I am totally ok with this. I don't want a defensive tackle who is horrible against the run signed to anything more than a one year deal. One thing I like about Gettleman is that he won't make foolish deals, he said it himself in his introductory press conference. I rather sign a serviceable veteran like Derek Landri and Antonio Garay on a cheaper deal and use our second round pick to draft an additional DT (class is so deep this year anyway).

We dont need someone who'll give us 6 sacks in 2013. We just need consistency and solid plays. The "6" sacks blows your eyes when you look at Dwan's stats, but he was an average player last season. There are better DT that we could replace him with. Look for a guy like Antonio Garay, or adding a NT like Sione Po'uha and drafting a Sheldon Richardson to replace him.

Well said. We'll have to sign a cheap veteran or two and draft someone, but Dwan is hardly someone that is difficult to replace.

Dwan was not a NT but a 3 technique guy whose job was to penetrate and get to the quarterback which is exactly what he did quite well. You must be confusing him with Ron Edwards who was the NT. We finally were able to get a push up the middle which is one of the reasons that Hardy was so effective this year. Teams couldn't double him like in the past.

Well said. We'll have to sign a cheap veteran or two and draft someone, but Dwan is hardly someone that is difficult to replace.

Who are all these cheap 3 technique guys out there better than Dwan? And I don't care who they are, few if any defensive tackles who are drafted come in and star right away. Most take at last 1 year or more to develop. This is exactly the philosophy Steve Smith was railing against when he lambasted Hurney for starting a rookie and causing problems like we did with Silatolu last year. Dwan is that proven veteran who would come relatively cheap if we would sign him for 2 years instead of just 1.

Someone will offer him a 2-3 year deal between 9-12 million, which is more then the Panther's would be willing to offer him. I figured he wasn't coming back though after his 6 sack season. Just figured he'd be asking for a significant pay increase.
