He obviously only came here with a one year deal,not four. He played only last year and hit free agency.

its what he had at buffalo. it's the deal he was under when he came here. they never updated his contract here.

I wonder if he got 2 years? Doubt it, but it would be nice

this is a mistake i made, actually. all the contracts websites had dwan listed under his old salary and contract structure, but as he was a vested veteran, that contract turned to dust when he was released. i erroneously thought he had been signed to a new 2 year deal with carolina when he signed here, but it clearly was a 1 year deal for 1.5M. the contract websites never had him listed at the correct salary.

I think some here believe that if a guy doesn't come in and put up Suh or Atkins-like numbers instantly at DT that it makes them a bust, those guys are ELITE. There's much more that goes into playing in the trenches than just sack totals and DT is one of the hardest positions to come in and put up big numbers early on. Some of the guys being mentioned as busts are far from it.

With that said, I'm glad we re-signed Dwan without overpaying. I'd expect an OL to be the next pick-up in FA. Solid job by Gettleman thus far, all things considered.

Also, I'm with others in that I'd like to see us go after Alan Branch. He's solid against the run, which is what we need.

What defensive theory works the best?

1.Having elite defensive ends that make the qb step up in the pocket, which cause dt to get sacks?

2.Having dt pressure and push the qb outside so the de can get sacks?

Drew Bree's? #2

RG3? #1

Mobile QBs require you to set the edge while pocket passers are disrupted by pressure up the middle. In today's league you should have a balance of both.

Against a QB who's a serious run threat, most DCs these days will employ what they call a "mush rush". The rushers don't necessarily slow down, but they do concentrate more on maintaining rush lanes and contain.

They'll still throw an occasional all out blitz in there just to rattle them, of course. And as often as not at least one defender from the back seven (usually a linebacker) will serve as a "spy" just in case they do take off.

It's generally the best approach, though Tampa under Monte Kiffin manhandled Vick pretty well by bringing heavy pressure from his left and forcing him to the right. Left handed Vick couldn't throw well when he ran right. They still kept a spy on that side to contain him of course.

That strategy might be a little chancy against a QB who's also a good passer. It worked well against Vick though, primarily because they knew Vick's pass game wasn't that great a threat as long as you had someone who could cover Alge Crumpler.

Yea vick had some pretty terrible weapons when he was with atl so that didn't help. Alge and dunn were really the only other threats his wrs were mike jenkins and some dude named ashley lilly if I remember right lmao.

I'm amazed that Person still has a job. Remember right after Keek was drafted, he tweeted the wrong pick? Voth had to correct him. He must have pictures of someone important with piles of blow and underage hookers.

I would seriously like to know how PFF grades the players, they honestly said adding him "didn't help all that much."

Wow.

SIGNING! To begin with, the Panthers brought back defensive tackle Dwan Edwards. Over the last several seasons the Panthers haven’t gotten much production out of the position, so Carolina added veterans Dwan and Ron Edwards, which didn’t help all that much. While Dwan Edwards managed six sacks, he didn’t come up with much more pressure and had a -6.5 rating in the run game. The move is an insurance policy at the position.
