Eagles might pursue Ginn

Do people actually think Ginn is going to get a big contract after less than 600 yards receiving? I hope Ginn comes back, but I don't think a ton of teams will be after him.

I don't understand what we're doing. Why aren't we at least, in negotiations with our free agents, or at a minimum, have touched base with them to let them know our intent. Unless of course, we don't even know yet...

 

Is Captain the only source of that? I would bet that Gettleman has at least been in touch with guys' agents that he really wants to keep (most important ones), and Captain just may not be one of them. Maybe not, but the only source of no contact that I've seen is Captain, and I can't imagine he knows any more than just his situation.

Maclin is a beast and would instantly be our #1.

Last year would have been his breakout season if not for that terrible practice injury. Signing him would be best cast scenario realm for me.

Really hope we find a way to keep Ginn though. He was a huge part in many a comeback last year.

Gettlemen is like a mafia don.  He is going to get rid of guys because it is "good business."  Do not expect emotional attachments to one-year contracts.  They serve a purpose, but they are not part of the core.

 

Ginn is upgradeable. I guarantee that the person who signs him does not get a good deal.  If I were Ginn, I would be looking for the "Set for Life" contract at his age. You do not buy stocks when they are at their highest point, and that is where Ginn is now. I tthink there will be some market for Ginn, and I think he should go after the biggest deal he can get.  He had 600 yards and can return kicks.  He cannot run the entire route tree, so he limits our offense.

 

I think Gettlemen is telling us what he is going to do when he mentioned that McNutt and King need to see the field.  I think he builds from the bottom up for role players.  Ginn had about 600 yards in his best season.   Lafell never did better than that.  We can do better for less money.  Yes, I think we will bring in a stud or two, but I am excted about the WR spot.  McNutt and King will be solid depth, Smitty to the slot, and a veteran and a rookie to round out the deal.

 

we could sign Ginn, but I doubt it. I do not see Lafell coming back.

I think Ginn should be a top priority. I don't think he will cost that much. Sure he is a mediocre WR. But the skills he does possess are what our offense and really the team needs. He is that occasional blazing fast go deep option. But more importantly Ginn is a great return man. Is that replaceable? Maybe, but at what cost? The Panthers have tried for years to get a decent return man. Now we have a great one. What he brings is field position and the occasional break out play. That can be all the difference between winning and losing.

 

I want us bring Ginn back, let LaFell walk. Draft a WR, then sign one in FA. That should be a good enough core for Cam to work with.

I am hoping Ginn wants to be here after the success he had with Cam. I mean, he played on two teams prior to the Panthers with little success as a WR. Here, he knows he and Cam have chemistry and will be very much a part of our offense.

 

If Ginn is any type of a football player and not all money.  This should be a huge factor in his decision.  His numbers are only going to improve with each year he is with CAM.   The Eagles passing game is very enticing but hopefully he will want to be apart of the Lombardi Trophy that will soon come our way.

Teddy approached the coaches mid season and personally thanked them for being the first people to give him a real chance. I think he's a Carolina player now. Hope so at least.

unless we completely upgrade with two or three receivers through the draft and free agency i don't see any way ginn isn't back here. he excelled in our system and he and cam have chemistry.

Good as he was, I don't really think he had enough highlights to command a huge contract elsewhere, so why not re-sign here?
