Hakeem Nick with Jay Z's agency? Sounds like he will be out of #Panthers price range.

He only gets big money from a team desperate to sign him.  There are going to a bunch of players that will be upset when they find out that this year will be worse than last year.  There will be a ton of guys hitting free agency.  He is not that great or worth that much money at this point.  If you had to chose between Hardy or Nicks only a UNC homer or a fool would go for NIcks.

I dont really understand this logic.

 

Victor Cruz actually signed a modest contract.. Ended up settling for less than he thought he deserved, and probably less than he could have gotten elsewhere.  He said he took a home town discount.. so signing with Roc Nation means nothing when it comes to discounts.

 

Every agent only cares about money... That is their main purpose.. If I was a player who only cared about money, I would go to the agent who has the best track record for getting players paid.

Yeah, it's still a legitimate talent agency so I don't really think it changes much of anything.  Some agents are better than others but all agents worth their weight will fight for their client to get as much as possible.  As far as Nicks goes, his current value is lower than anticipated.  The NFL is a "what have you done for me lately" business and lately, Nicks hasn't done much of anything. I really don't think any smart organization would overpay for him.  I don't care if we get him either way.

Yup, I wouldn't be suprised with Jay Z demanding 300mil like he did with Cano. Lmfao.

Nicks has got to know that no GM with an ounce of common sense is going to give him alot of money... going to have to prove he is not the player we saw last season.

Bring him in after JZ fails to get him a $300 mil contract over 2 years, get rid of the agent, introduce him to TD and what real recovery is all about, then watch him have a 200 catch season. It could happen...

Is Jay Z focusing too much on his sports agency while Beyonce' has an affair with Obama!!?!

Enquiring minds want to know.

NY is a big market and him being a Latino football player in NY makes himself more marketable alone within the Hispanic community there, I'm sure he's getting hell of endorsements and money else wheres

i think the choice between Hardy and Nicks would depend on what you could get each for.if Hardy prices himself out of Charlotte and we could sign Nicks reasonably it would be foolish not to.Having said that straight up I would want to maintain the defense way before letting him go and adding Nicks. I am a homer for sure but I am a Panther homer also and want us to have the best chance to win and between the 2 Hardy would give us the better chance to  games.
