Gman's 2014 puzzle begins today

12 posts in this topic

Rosters have been frozen from the end of the regular season until the day after the SB. Teams can now cut/waive and sign street FAs. If we don't plan on resigning a player we can release him now and let him get an early start on finding another team before the start of the league season on March 11. You never know what veterans could become available prior to the start of regular FA, it could be interesting over the next week to see what teams do.

Not sure why Godfrey is still on the roster.  He should've been cut the minute we were able to let him go.  We all know it's gonna happen.  Do the guy a solid and give him as long as possible to find the best option out there for him.

Think it suits our cap if he's a June 1st cut! Maybe wrong though. Hope we can snag some good free agents before it all starts in march

Probably so.  But can't a team release a player earlier and still slate him as a post-June 1st cut?  Seems like I've heard that before.

Not sure, heard a few rumours deangelo may also be a June 1st cut which would be a shame.

any good FA vets we could sign before march?

I really like DeAngelo, but if there's significant cap space to be gained, he probably does need to go.  We have to start getting out from under these awful RB contracts somehow.

Yep, DWill has been one of my favorite panthers of all time and not just because of his play, but of the two, Dwill's contract is the only one that's really able to be shed. It's time to move on with some young cheap talent and hope that Stewart finds the health fairy over the next couple of years.

I think he will ultimately get the June 1 cut designation but I do think that even though there are no games on the field there are still games being played in positioning and strategery. Its a dynamic environment so you dont want to tip the hand too soon.  Totally agree with your point but I think we can hold on to him for a while without disrespecting him or limiting his ability to catch on with another team.

godrey was on radio talking like he was going to remain a panther, but also stating his love for football(hes going to play here or somewhere). i'm sure he understands coming off achillies injury, high cap number, and panthers in cap hell.... well he can either redo his current contract to a prove it 1 million+ deal for 2014, then go form there about more years and money. or get the pink slip. http://espn730.com/page.php?page_id=67

 

 

dwill is getting alittle less than 2 mill per year(which is a deal), BUT his cap number is around 5-7 million*ugh. so cutting him is really not benefiting the panthers, cause his cap number doesnt go away. his new contract is setup to end after the 2015 season, then two dummy years at 1.6 million in dead cap space. then he could resign at a cheap rate or retire or sign somewhere else or panthers could give barner a shot during his contract year or dwill becomes new rb coach(like all are going to say)etc etc.

 

dg job is always working on puzzles, no off days.

Yeah, other than godfrey, the only real options we have are massive restructures, these Hurney contracts are ugly.

    • you don't need rock hard facts to reasonably comment on what Nunes has done of late.   WH went to Nunes with a goal to distract away from where the House Intel Committee was going and the direction it was going with it all out in the public.   Nunes did just that.  He shut things down on the WH behalf so they could then figure out there next moves.  Because they know what Yates and company following up Comey would lead to. Eyeball test should tell any right left or middle person that Nunes is at this point not doing an investigation but doing the WH's bidding.  The fact he talks like a lying 8 yr old and acting totally out of character in how he has handled himself speaks volumes.       you want to know what people are so interested in everything? Because Trump and company are LITERALLY doing a coverup right now.  They aren't really hiding that.  They may technically have Spicer say it is outrageous and say stuff in the media.....but there ACTIONS are actually pretty obvious and bold IMO.  So it is only reasonable to want to know what it is they are covering up.   Because really Trump and company are the ones telling people there is something.  
    • Well two of those players are off our draft board so I'm going to give this a no
