It's a bit unnerving that he may just be coming into his own and we have to resign both he and LaFell in order to have some continuity in the WR corp. 

 

It's a bit of an odd contract to sign too, it will probably be filled with escalators.

All the WR who may be getting playing time this year are FA next year. I think that's what DG wanted.

 

But Serious question

 

How much can Lafell, AE, Gettis or any of them not name Smitty really ask for and get in the open Market???

 

 

It's not like any of them have a history of consistent production on their resume.

Well if we decide to resign him, it's not like we are going to have to break the bank lol

We have had AE for 2 years and all we have out of him is a serviceable preseason game. Let's start talking contracts after week 6. Happy to pay him if he is really coming around. As koolkatluke says, what is AE going to demand in the open market with his resume thus far?

Some might get less then what they got on their rookie contract.

 

 

AE was a 2nd or 3rd round draft pick. He might not see the money he got on his 1st deal.

Dear god, I don't even want to fathom that.

Honestly AE is my last concern. We can't let Lafell walk, I just hope Gettleman doesn't go too cheap at him.

Outside of App St homers, absolutely nobody would pay AE more than a bag of stale potato chips to play in the NFL. His "breakout season" is gonna be no more than 20rec 200yd 2td. He will be a 26yo, 5'11 180lb, 4-year vet WR who has averaged 1/2 reception per game. He won't generate any interest outside of Carolina. He will either be resigned on a 1-yr vet minumum deal and fight for a roster spot, or just given a plane ticket to Canada and the CFL.

I'm a Lafell fan but his resume says he should get paid like a 3rd WR. I wouldn't pay to much for any of these guys until they can prove more. Maybe 1 year deals for everybody.

If he breaks out this year its win-win for us...still doesn't have the resume to command a big contract, but good enough to comfortably re-sign

maybe he should do something before people worry about that. 

 

5 career catches and 2 catches in preseason. 

 

 

Still, yeah. WR outside of Smith, and DB likely to make the roster outside of Godfrey and Norman, are all free agents.  I don't think that's accidental.  Some guys will prove valuable and might stay.  But even then, it's partially hedging bets on whether Rivera, and therefore schemes we're running, are even there.

we have said this very thing hence some of us wanting a WR early in the draft. how much is any of these guys production this year can be contributed to them being in a contract year? also, are you willing to pay Lafell money like Mike Williams or Brain Hartline?

I don't think he'll be quite that low, especially depending on if he has a big season this year. He will get interest from other teams for sure. If we penny pinch him, he may be gone. Then it becomes, who do we replace him with?

Not to mention we still need to address finding a #1 to take over for Steve. We can't also be out a #2.

Only having the 34 year old Steve Smith under contract definitely concerns me.

Also add in Greg Hardy looming.
