i dont see Packers keeping James Jones and he isnt a dropoff from Nicks or Decker imo

 

that's a possibility also.

 

we have options.

 

i hope we get to take advantage of some of them.

pretty much this.

 

as i see it, it's a choice between lafell, nicks, baldwin, decker, and tate.

...or Maclin.

Thanks to pro-football-reference.com:

 

I guess it depends on how you look at it. Nicks certainly has greater overall numbers.  The thing that concerns me about Nicks is money vs. production, relative to who else is out there.

i think we keep ginn around as he's just too useful as a returner 

 

 

Just a thought....do you think the possibility of Barner developing into a return man would make Ginn expendable?

nope.

 

i think it just gives us more options and security...that is if barner grows into the job.

 

we need more weapons in all phases.

Literally....hit the gym kid.

 

I'd prefer Ginn to LaFell.  I'd hate to see them keep Donald as the 3, add a better WR in FA, and let Ginn walk.

Clausen will want to go to a team that might give him playing time.

 

I bet LaFell comes back for the minimum.  If he doesn't, he's got a year or two before he's out of the league entirely.

 

Florence will be on the golf course next fall, teeing off with Hangartner.

hmm... top probably something like...

 

1.Hardy

2.Mitchell

3.Gross

4.Ginn

5.Captain

 

#5 is hard, because I think what Mikell brings to the defense is underrated on this board sometimes, but Captain is too.

 

#3 is primarily because of our how many FAs we have on the OL as it is and how weak it is.  The draft could change this, and I think losing Ginn would be a huge mistake.

 

#4 I think is a lock to come back, along with #2.  The others, I'm not sure on.

I'm thinking that Graham Gano is going to be in the top five.

...I didn't even realize he was a FA.  He definitely is up there.

Why has Clausen's name been coming up so much? Am I wrong or didnt the team cut him?

 

from the Team page on the Panthers site:

TRANSACTIONS
Placed on injured reserve with an injured right shoulder by Carolina (9/1/13)...Waived/injured by Carolina (8/31/13)...Selected in the second round (48th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft by Carolina (4/23/10).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Waived/injured by Carolina (8/31/13)

The fact that Jimmy Clausen's name is still associated with professional football in any shape or form is pathetic, tragic, deplorable, despicable, horrendous, and down right bullshit.

 

Hey man...don't hold back!  Tell us what you really think!

Lol at LaFell. When you're checking in 1 spot higher than Pickles, it should tell you something

 

Lafell has some talent, and he's tough. Just inconsistent.  I'm not sure if he and his agent honestly expect for him to get paid like a number two receiver.  I think he's great depth though, and valuable on certain plays.  I'd take a shot at a 1 year deal worth maybe like 1.5 mil, and go let him explore FA.
