LaFell Playing For His Next Contract

110 posts in this topic

Lafell is gone. If you resign him and Ginn that doesnt really leave any room for anybody we may draft high. Somebody is gonna have to lose reps. Ginn has more value the Lafell,and its too much talent at receiver in the draft to give him a new contract in our offense. Easily replaced, not much to think about for Gettleman. But i could see a Captain Munnerlyn situation happening for him and coming back if he doesnt have a lot of interest, he would just have to beat out the competition next year. But the smart GM move would be to draft someone with a high ceiling and go from there, we have to get it right eventually.

I think we can still draft a solid #1 and keep LaFell and Ginn. Since we'll be drafting towards the bottom of the 1st round, I don't think we're gonna be paying a whole lot for a solid WR.

Unless there is a plan to pick up a KR I think Ginn stays over LaFell. Ginn can break a game wide open every time he touches the ball. I like LaFell a lot and I want us to keep him but I don't see how we keep both.

If LaFell was our 3rd option, meaning that we had found a true #1 and moved Smitty to the #2, we would have a hell of a receiving corps, especially with Olsen.

For once I have enough confidence in our GM to make the right call with LaFell.  If anyone has a pulse on the league value of a player it is Gettleman.

Lets compare number two WR shall we?

Wr1-

Rookie Year

25 Rec 407 Yards 1 TD

Second Year

27 Rec 317 Yards 0 TD

Third Year

68 Rec 948 Yards 6 TD

Fourth Year

96 Rec 1253 Yards 8 TD

Wr2

Rookie Year

38 Rec 468 Yards 1 TD

Second Year

36 Rec 613 Yards 3 TD

Third Year

44 Rec 677 Yards 4 TD

Fourth Year

48 Rec 614 Yards 5 TD

Now...the first WR was the number one receiver after his fourth year...different scheme all together and was basically our only target. I believe they are pretty similar production give Brandon his due....his numbers are similar to everyone's favorite Moose...

I can't make threads, but Marqise Lee looks damn good. He is a run after catch guy and is fiery. Reminds me of Smith a little. Good be available later in the first because of his size and injuries?

i think some of you guys are overvaluing lafell, he's a good wr point blank but he's not a guy who would be a good 1wr if smitty got hurt or retired,and that's the main point. If we draft a wr, there's going to be a log jam with him,lafell,ginn, and smith........limiting everyone except for smiths snaps. Good wideout but unless he shows that he can be consistent in getting separation, its going to be hard resigning him as a priority when guys like munnerlyn,mitchell, and cole balling out even ginn

lafell is a better receiver than ginn in every way cept speed.

Thanks for your opinion.

nobody is claiming he is a number one.

Thanks for your input.

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
