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.

We definitely know Mike Mitchell wants to stay here.

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?

Ted Ginn is a mercenary. He's going to take the cash and he probably should. This doesn't seem to me like a guy that's interested in winning over money, so we'll probably have to make some changes. It could be a bigger loss than any of us anticipate if we can't keep him because his ability to open up field on deep routes and his value in the return game is immense. But we do have to get better at the position.

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.

From what I've read, Hardy hasn't been contacted either and I haven't read any reports that indicates any players other than Cam may be getting an extension or some type of signing. Of course this is just what I have access to from the World Wide Web. But I hope you're right...

Why would you resign a free agent before you go through the draft and see what comes our way ? To Gettleman this is a business and you leave all your options on the table until you have to make a decision. The players know this and Gettleman knows who wants to stay and who is important to the team. Everyone wondered why we drafted Keekly when we had Beason. Would you question that move today? We have to be patient and see what the Gman does. If Ginn wants to stay, I think we will him a fair offer. We were a good fit for him and he did a good job for us. I'd like to have him back, but I trust Gettleman.

Personally I think there's a much better chance of him re-signing here than not.

You could tell he really liked being a part of this team.

Read that Pats might look at Nicks too

I guess the pats are giving up on the "we can win without play makers" thing. I see Decker in their future though. They're out to prove something.

Player evaluation, waiting for the league to announce the total cap figure, combine and draft boards to draw up, why would Gettleman just go out and do all his business straight away when he's unprepared and probably awaiting other or better options down the line, ginn had a modest return game, never took one back to the house, with how bad our return game has been anyone could of made it look better it wasn't difficult, barner can fill that role as he needs to be further involved on special teams if we keep the same quota of RBs, people need to be patient and stop playing general manager, this ain't madden folks, Jesus some of you would have had hardy signed up, cam signed up and leave about a dime in the bank to sign another 20 players!

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 would take Ginn back at the right price.  I think, however, he is going to have to shop around and return before agreeing on what we are offering.  (Munnerlyn, Edwards, for example).  I do not expect his salary demands to be reasonable at first. We will  see.

Well, maybe, I don't know, because if we don't resign a free agent before the draft another team will have likely already signed them.

Wow!!!

 

The FA period starts BEFORE the draft.  Most FA's are signed to fill spots....which allows you to draft BPA and for depth.

 

This is Football 101 dude.
