Most likely trade partner for Hardy?

But if we tag him we are hit in cap space by the tag price which is 10mil for a DE right?

 

Not if he is traded.

 

You tag a player and that 12.8 goes against your cap space, if you trade that player inside the franchise tag framework the team that signs the player gets the picks. 

 

Personally I hope we use the non-exclusives rights tag on Greg. It allows teams to work out a deal with him, then we either match the deal or they give us some picks.

 

 

I think the Raiders would be ideal for Greg. It takes him out of the NFC and out of our hair for a bit, not to mention he would immediately become the icon of that defense for the next few years.  Jacksonville could use some hype as well. 

 

I want the best for both parties here, Greg to get a fair deal and the Panthers to either have him or in position to make the loss of him much less damaging. 

With our lack of cap, plethora of needs, getting compensation for Greg could be everyones best option.

Oakland= Sammy Watkins!

 

For real. We need Hardy to net us a high pick to get Watkins. Raiders or anyone else.

Oakland would be perfect. Not only do we get the #5 pick but we will rarely have to face him.

Cleveland signed Kruger from Baltimore last offseason. Doubt they swing for the fences again on a DE in Free Agency

 

Yea, but both Kruger and Sheard are OLBs. Also, both of them didnt exactly get to the QBs this season. Hardy had 5 more sacks than both of them combined for. Hardy is big enough to play DE in that 34 D.

Really weak: Ealy, Tuitt, Jeffcoat, and Lynch.

 

Ealy is the leader of the pack. Tuitt is probably a late 1st-2nd round talent. Jeffcoat is considered by some to be a tweener and Lynch's stock has dropped dramatically since the start of the season.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
