Greg Hardy - DL - Panthers

Panthers RE Greg Hardy is seeking a contract extension heading into the final year of his rookie deal.

The timing is right for Hardy in that he's coming off a breakout season, but wrong in that the Panthers have little room to maneuver and defensive ends are settling for below-market deals all over the league. Hardy is currently due just $1.35 million in his walk year, so it's not as if the Panthers can dramatically lower his cap number in the form of an extension. We wouldn't expect an agreement any time soon.

No, it's a sign he wants to get paid more because his fellow teammates are raking in the big cash.

Hardy once retweeted a tweet a fan had said "@ArmantiEdwards made more money than @ItsGHardy this year. Is this real life?"

I knew it would come to this sooner, rather than later.

Greg Hardy’s agent Drew Rosenhaus has approached the team about a contract extension for his client.

Drew Rosenhaus, the same guy who negotiated CJ's and Jon Beason's contract.

He can go fug himself.

Hardy:

6/17/2010: Signed a four-year, $1.906 million contract. The deal included a $115,786 signing bonus.

2013: $1.35 million

2014: Free Agent

Edwards:

7/8/2010: Signed a four-year, $2.504 million contract. The deal included a $713,840 signing bonus.

2013: $630,000

2014: Free Agent

Kinda, maybe. Edwards is making half of what Hardy will make this year, but Edward's original deal was b$600k more than Hardy's, and all of that was in the signing bonus.

With what? Fug him if he's going to pull such a selfish move at this time. Let him walk and replace him after the season with Alexander. He thinks he's going to get CJ money after one good season, while we can't even resign Munnerlyn.

I would hate to do it.... But if we can't find a way to lock him up we should look at trading him (2nd or 3rd round pick if we're lucky)

If we were able to free up the cash this might be a good time to extend him. If he repeats his season he will command top tier DE dollar, we could probably use the whole "only one good year" argument as leverage to sign him for 8-10 mil a year.
