Bruce Campbell and James Dockery are today's updates. Will the injured with some potential arise from the ashes?

There is value to every player on the team this year, as there should be for every team that goes 12-5. I would love to keep Lafell at the right price, because you do make valid points. The problem is do you pay this guy 2M at the age of 27-28? Probably, but not on a team that has the needs we have, the cap situation, and the deep receiving draft. Ginn doing as well as he did show that it is possible to bring someone in that would be better. Take that 2M, draft 2 receivers and get a FA and I like our chances at finding someone who will produce more just as Ginn did.

I can see us keeping Dockery, at least until the 53 man cut. He's cheap, big, and needed. It's going to help that Captain might ask for too much.

I like what I have seen out of the limited snaps that we've seen from Dockery.  The problem is that he's much like the rest of our defensive backfield: He has some decent measurables and OK athletic ability, but is not quite starting material. There's just a little something missing.  I may be jumping the gun, but most of our guys' ceilings seem to be as back-ups.  

 

Sounds like I am talking myself into placing a premium on a shutdown corner in the draft. ***cough cough*** What the hell am I doing?

LOL, I forgot Bruce Campbell was still on our roster... sure would be nice if he decided to live up to his potential some day.

Can Bruce play RT?

 

I think "can Bruce play?" is the more appropriate question at this point, LOL

Bruce Campbell being a must sign ahead of LaFell, it's obvious that he can play. Facepalm.

Good point. So...we posted a player who was on injury all year a better re-sign than someone who actually produced numbers and started in all the games?! All be it Lafell didn't meet expectations but he still contributed and was a part of the 12-5 season. I'm losing faith in this report, quickly.

    • 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.
