Joe Person's Panthers free agency update

There have been some great defensive front 7s in Panthers history with some elite, hall of fame d-ends and 3-4 outside linebackers. I can't 100% say this is the best line in Panthers history. That said, no one, not Greene/White/Peppers none of the great players we've had have ever had a 15 sack season

 

Hardy tied the team record of 15 sacks. Kevin Greene also had a 15 sack season with the Panthers.

. Yes the deserves a good contract. But not for he is asking for.

 

That is the point. He hasn't asked for anything. Some guy at cbssports.com is guessing what he wants.

 

In fact the only thing he has said is that he is open to a hometown discount.

To be fair-

1. He's asked for something or has a number in mind, we just don't know what it is

2. Discount isn't the only thing he said. Crapload of money is a quote of his.

He's worth the contract he's likely asking for, but we may just not be in a position to give it to him. While I do think they should get what they can while they can, I also think they should remember their place on the team and not try to cripple the entire unit, like Brees.

This is a persons story so take everything he says and reverse it and you prob have a better picture of what's happening.

Gettleman ACTUALLY said we're not letting him leave without compensation. Re-watch his presser.

 

Yea even if they straight up just let him walk the Panthers would still probably get a 3rd round compensatory selection.  So yea there would be compensation no matter what.  Doesn't change anything.

That depends on a lot of factors, weak logic at best.

Taking out the personal fan bias from the equation here, yes I like Hardy a lot, but I have doubts that he is worth elite DE money.

He has asked for money, a crapload of it. He said that the franchise tag of 12 million would work for him till Carolina gets out of cap problems and could sign him to a long term deal.

 

His idea of a hometown discount was 10 million off a hundred million dollar contract. 

 

 

 

He's looking for a brink's truck to be backed up in his driveway. When he was on here and posting and pieing people, I said that he would be asking for big time money and he pied it. I believe the contract I posted was a 6 year deal worth in excess of 70 million dollars.

I came out with this same story a week ago....same headline. Same introduction. Continue following Joe Person for your story's a week late as he apparently waits to read mine. I did find his cap information valuable, but also questionable.

 

I'm the Panthers Columnist for football.com Not gonna spam my articles every post but this article kinda ticked me off that it was a week after mine, and i question how he came up with the story, titile, and introduction if he didn't read mine.

Nothing would surprise anyone about Joe Person. He's basically a running joke around here. Even Panthers players don't like him. Don't even get us started on the lazy, careless, and irresponsible reporting that he considers journalism. He's the absolute last guy most Panthers fans look to for real news about the team. We support the real journalists.
