Ted Ginn joins the Panthers on a one-year deal

I wanted Ted Ginn last year, so I feel like this signing is way too late. Had we signed him last year, we wouldn't have drafted Joe Adams and simply would have drafted Frank Alexander with our original 4th round pick, meaning we would have had a third round pick this year. So that was just terrible management last year, of course we still had Hurney working his magic.

So, I have mix feeling about signing him now, because of Joe Adams.

low risk/high reward.

i'll play that game all day. that's exactly the type moves the panthers need to make if they want to make an impact early.

more/better competition for the return job. how could that be a bad thing?

Not saying it's a bad move, I'm just mad they didn't sign him last year.

Not saying I wouldn't take a chance on him, just pointing it out. He is an RFA tender though.

Now give me Booth and Branch and I'll be over joyed with this FA period.

Possibly worst thread title since Tommy Jone but good news nonetheless...

For my amusement, what was the thread title prior to being changed?

Well, a good QB makes all the difference in the world and fitting what a team does.

Pair Steve Smith with Clausen and you would be lucky to see 500 yards and 1 TD from Smith.

[B]Pair Syndey Rice with Brett Favre and magically he is a huge playmaker after doing diddly poo prior[/b]

Or since...

well when you look at the scrubs we have after smitty i think that it wouldn't be hard to not be in the running for at least the #3 job. i just don't think that ginn is the last pickup we make this offseason. i suspect we'll bring in one or two more that are more likely to nab the #3 job over ginn.

the opportunity will be there for sure, but the competition will be different by training camp.

I can't get over your constant need to poo on Lafell like you do. Scrub Lafell really??

the lowest and the chargers wouldn't get any compensation. he would cost us $1.3mil to sign, tho.
