Do you think he gets in some players ears? First of all I don't know how many pro bowl players that are in their contract years but do you think he and or our players get in their ears talking about coming to the panthers because we are on the rise? ... discuss and or bash at will... might turn out good he gets a first hand look at some of them.

Maybe they'll come play for free out the kindness of their heart once we explain our situation to them.

It's certainly not a bad thing. I have had this thought myself. I think it's especially important for guys to want to come and play with cam, offensive or defensive players.

I mentioned earlier, it's definitely a plus for potential free agents to get to meet Rivera. He's always been known as a "player's coach", having been in their shoes himself.

I think it could definitely factor in to a FA's decision in choosing Carolina over another team.

Seriously...we may not be able to afford our own Pro Bowl guys. 

 

You think we're going to get other ones??

I was really hoping this was gonna be a pic of Ron and the guys. We don't have money, especially for any probowlers. #Hurneyproblems

It may not make a difference this year but two, three years from now that big free agent will remember how much he liked Rivera.

Maybe Riverboat can sway Jimmy Graham ... lol ... Imagine a 2 tight end set with Olsen and Graham.

 

Actually, I would rather have our coaches at the Senior Bowl scouting the college talent.

There's always a certain amount of 'unofficial recruiting' that goes on at the Pro Bowl. It's usually done more by players than coaches though.

I don't comprehend why any of you would want Graham on this team. The guy is softer than Wonder Bread. I'm sorry but I'm not willing to spend a dime on a douchebag who's going to play 5'5", 145 lbs when we need him the most. He's not worth the damn investment. New Orleans would be stupid to pay him what he wants to be honest.

They'll franchise him - as a tight end, not a receiver - so he's going nowhere unless someone's willing to give up the requisite picks.

(and no, I wouldn't)
