Dwan negotiation update: No movement

There has been no movement in negotiations between the Panthers and free agent DT Dwan Edwards.

The Panthers made Edwards a one-year, $1.5 million offer last week. He says he has a two-year deal on the table from another team and is inclined to take it if Carolina doesn't up the ante. Edwards, 32 in May, posted 6.5 sacks as a 4-3 tackle last season.

(I realize this is not news, but I did not see an update anywhere so I thought an update might help people know where this is)

A poker showdown going on?

There are a few other DTs in free agency.

Well if he has such a wonderful deal why hasn't he taken it then?

He actually wants to stay in Carolina and play for the Panthers?

He's trying to gain leverage..He's old, he wants security and money for his last couple of years. I firmly believe he would have left already if that was the case.

Please spare me. He is using a common tactic, trying to squeeze out more coin. It's all about the $.

We called his bluff, he wants to stay here - he just wants a little more $.

No news is good news for the Panthers.

Come on back, Dwan.

Would it hurt to give the guy a 2-year deal? It's not like we're talking about a 5-year, $60m deal here or something. More than likely, a 2-year, $2.5-$3m dollar would get him to sign. I know we're cap-strapped, but it's not like that type of deal is crippling.

Exactly. And I will PayPal a couple bucks to anyone here that can create some sort of animated gif of Gettleman and Hurney playing poker against each other. Bonus $1 if you incorporate the deal with it sunglasses and can make me laugh.
