Extending Greg Hardy now would be a big mistake.

Keep the D young and intact people. sign the man. Then we can play with the offense only next year in the draft. The panthers are going places.

I'm pretty sure we knew about Beason's injury (at least one of them) before signign him right?  We DEFINITELY knew about Morgan's.  Those were just bad decisions by a GM that is long gone.  I don't think this is the same thing.


IMO, you pay the guy.  He's going to be even more of a monster.  Now he has (hopefully) legit DT's in the middle, with CJ on the other side?  Good luck.  This has potential to be the best Dline since Ruck/Buckner/Jenkins/Peppers, or even better.  It's worked for the Giants and, we just happen to have someone that was apart of that.   I don't think anyone has brought up Hardy's ability to get in the passing lane and deflect passes either (all the other attributes were mentioned though).


Not to mention this guy has a big motor, and plays like he enjoys it and gives a crap, unlike Peppers when he was here.  I think Hardy loves the fans and caters to them, I mean, who doesn't love the Kraken persona?  You're looking at a guy that not only could be a great player but also a great character/marketing guy for our team, get us a little exposure, which never hurts anything.


Show him we want him and maybe both sides will get a good deal.  Being proactive may look like a sign of loyalty to Hardy and may even gain us an even better deal.
