The bad old days

From an article dated August 20th of 2011 that I looked up for info on Kalil's contract (link)

 

The Carolina Panthers continued their surprising spending spree Friday when they signed center Ryan Kalil to a six-year contract worth $49 million that will make him the highest-paid center in the NFL, according to team and league sources.

 

The Panthers transactions since the NFL lockout include re-signing its own pending free agents such as defensive end Charles Johnson (six-years, $72 million), running back DeAngelo Williams (five years, $43 million), linebackers Jon Beason (five years, $51.6 million), James Anderson (five years, $22 million) and Thomas Davis (five years, $12 million).

The Panthers also signed kicker Olindo Mare to a four-year, $12-million contract...

 

 

That wasn't the last of it, of course, but that was what they had done to date :unsure:

 

The article also includes this line...

 

After a flurry of free agent and trade activity that surprised many around the league, Panthers general manager Marty Hurney had identified Kalil's long-term deal as his next priroity.

 

Apparently both Yasinskas and his ESPN editors missed "priroity".

 

But typos aside, take a look at those contracts, all signed in relatively short order.

 

Oy :(

If TD can stay healthy his contract is a fricking bargain.

So in retrospect in relatively short order we dished out the highest Center, Defensive End, Linebacker, and RB tandem contracts in the NFL.  Lol.

and everyone has re-negotiated and helped the team out (except CJ) or been cut. More looking out the windshield to where we're going and less looking in the rear view mirror please.

I see what you did there. But when I read the thread title I thought of the 90s.

i sure did until reality hit and realized that we blew our load on just a handful of players that were the core of a losing team and one really bad kicker.

CJ said he was not going to return to the Panthers unless they paid him big money and they did. At that point in time the players ran the show not the FO. He is still only here for that reason though and his contract is a nightmare.
