When he signs that tag money becomes guaranteed...by us. And nobody is going to give up picks and pay him that much. That would be stupid.

 

Yep.  With the tag, we're taking the risk and assuming a team is going to bite....and with that gamble could come 60+% of our available cap space.        

 

At the same time though, I think he's worth a 1st.  Being a 25 yo DE coming off a 16 sack season warrants a 1st round pick in my book.  If he doesn't, I don't know what does.

Because then you are in cap hell in the future.

Back end loading huge contracts eventually catch up with you.


I agree totally. But I'm taking about fair backloaded money, say hardy wants $10-12 mill as has been reported, why not offer him $6-8 guaranteed plus bonus money for first two years until we are clear of cap hell we are in? Then year three, four and five he can get his money back by his contract rising significantly?, people forget but Williams and Stewart will be off he roster by then so we will have a much much new manageable cap space situation, difference with gurneys deals he backloaded contracts with no real brain rewarding on passed performance not anticipating future production, gettleman won't make the same mistake, my opinion says gettleman is just a better man to man evaluater of players

To me, it seems that Bardeen is looking from the perspective of an overly emotional fan, as opposed to seeing the bigger picture.

I understand the economics but make no mistake our defense will not be as good without Hardy.

i'm already over it and i've kind of accepted that hardy will be gone.  there will be a vacuum at his spot because we obviously don't have a DE of his caliber on the roster but a more experienced star/kk duo should help by getting some push up the middle.

It's a fine line between being strapped to a position ( like our RB )and getting consistent production that justifies the price. I like Hardy but I don't want to be put in position that we don't have options of other key positions of need.

If we lose Hardy, get ready boys because our first round pick won't be WR.

can't wait to see the responses from the posters on this board who would start 10 WRs and cam on offense if they could

It sucks that the previous GM got emotional and signed mediocre players to huge contracts (Godfrey, Stewart) that are cap-strapping this team.  Hardy is a legit building block to a top 3 defense and now the Panthers have to let him walk.  Make no mistake, Gettleman already told us he's letting him walk.  "There's isn't a team out there that hasn't let a big dog walk out the door.  We are cap challenged."  Why the hell would Gettleman say that unless he was preparing the fans for Hardy to leave.  Cmon guys, who is that delusional?  He's not coming back.

not saying he wasnt disruptive or influential in pretty much every game, but we all know the sack numbers are kinda a joke considering almost half came in two games and i think he had more games without a sack than with.  not discrediting him for his efforts throughout the season, he is great for us and is very disruptive, but going solely on sacks, then he wont be worth what he is expecting.  at least not for a team that has this many holes and free agents to sign with very limited cap space.
