I'd like to congratulate Aaron Wilson on his new job covering the Panthers.

Wha...He works for who? :unsure:

He's a Baltimore Sun writer who breaks news on pretty much every team.

Is that low for a first rounder?

With the new CBA, all the pay scales are pretty much set in stone, so there aren't any deals higher or lower than normal.

However, apparently Star's deal contains some offset language, and that was not the case with last year's 14th pick. I'm not sure of the offset specifics, but offsets usually relate to what happens if the team cuts a drafted player and that player then signs with another team. I know neither Cam nor Luke had offsets, so it appears Gettleman is taking a harder line, even with draft picks.

Also will someone tell jamos14 to change his signature.  I can't seem to navigate away from the page.

You're not even joking. That sig is intoxicating.

    • I have a weird suspicion we're really interested in Ross to many's dismay.  Last year proved in too many wats how much we need a playmaker and in a major way.  Looking just at in-game skills, Ross is the best playmaker in the draft.  I feel better about him than the board did about Brandin Cooks in his draft.  We need to draft someone clearly ahead of Shepard/Johnson and to be our third in volume receiving option behind Olsen and KB.   I can also see that causing a stir here so it'd be an entertaining summer for inline fandom.    
    •   Allen is an intriguing prospect. I just wish I had more faith in his versatility. IMO, we need DE more than another DT. Even if that DT is pretty dang good.   Ross? Really? I love everything about him. Except...those knees, and that shoulder. Small guys with injury problems in college? Not high on my list. But hey, that's just me. We can still get a talented kid who doesn't have injury concerns. Just not at 8.   Now a CB? That tickles my fancy. As much as I would love a Hog Mollie at DE. A top flight CB does not repulse me. But...to me, CB is like WR. We should still be able to get a talented kid, even in the 2nd.   Man. I don't know. Part of me wants that Hog Mollie DE. Part of me wants a kid that can scare a Defense. I just am of the mind that we need Offense more so than Defense. But, Fournette is the only Offensive player worthy of that 8 slot. Wishy washy is my name.   Other than that. Thanks for playing.
