This team is loaded with player that make a difference.

 

Who are the Core players you keep no matter what

 

Obviously 

 

Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly our team captains on both sides of the ball.   Our franchise players offense and defense.

 

RB Williams..... though older he is more reliable

TE Olsen

OL Kalil and Silatolu (though injured)

DT Star 

DE Johnson

LB Kuechly

DB Mitchell

K Gano

 

While you want to keep the hole group in tact these are the players I think are our core players.

 

I love J. Gross he has been a Panther through thick and thin but he is getting long in the tooth and shouldn't be considered a core player anymore.

Hardy does too many things on that D-Line not to be considered a Core Player.

 

PAY THE MAN!

Yep, Hardy is earning his contract.  Not sure how G-man is gonna pull it off, but he's gotta figure it out.

I love the Kraken and you are right he does many things for this team.  Would you let Johnson go to keep him? 

 

You can only have so many core players.

I wouldn't call Silatolu a core player yet.

Once again...I would love to see us keep every player including TD..

 

TD will stay a Panther till he retires.  I don't think he will ever leave this team.  Maybe not a core player but an outstanding LB.

 

One from each level except OL and you can have two.

I agree with the sentiment that Hardy is a core player.  DG needs to do what he can to retain his services without hamstringing us for when Cam and Luke need to be resigned.  I don't know if that's possible but I have confidence Hardy will be here for a long time.

Core players can be relied on to make big plays, be leaders, and make others around him better. Hardy and Mitchell are clearly in that discussion. They make the team better and they HAVE to be re-signed.

Id say TD is core.

Hes been here long, playing at a high level, and went through more adversity than anyone by far.

Rivera is a distant 2nd
