Bring back Lafell?

Recommended Posts

Would not want him back for the sole reason that if we drafted Matthews or Benjamin and lafell got the #2 WR spot over one of them just because Rivera likes him lol Edit: only kinda serious but I feel he's had his chance and done little to nothing with it Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using CarolinaHuddle mobile app

step 1: let him test free agency

step 2: let him realize no one else wants to pay him

step 3: lowball him

step 4: ???

step 5: profit

We need targets...blocking is effort. I'm sick of seeing drives stall bc of dropped passes. Every receiver needs to be a threat. LaFell took a lot of steps last year but idt he's worth more money at this point.

No. He's nothing more than a solid blocker. He isn't a veteran leader or anything, he's really just a complete joke. Let him walk no matter the price.

Wouldn't hate it but would have to be for very cheap. While he frustrates me in passing game at times he still is a decent player and a very good blocker. If he came back near minimum and we played him more on run downs wouldn't mind.

Oh Wee Mayne.

Lots I hate up in here. I do understand the frustration 11 gives out, but if he's cheap and we're still trying to actively upgrade the WR corp, he'd be a decent keep for us. Like a few others have said, he knows the system and is a great blocker, plus he kinda somewhat produces in the passing game. If he's back, he should be a 3rd or 4th WR for us. We already need a new number 1, a potential number 2. re-signing Ginn as a situational WR is a hopeful as well, and Smitty should be a role player going forward. That's a ton of uncertainty revolving around our WR core... So yeah, if the price is right, at least we know we'd be getting a solid yet unspectacular LaFell to help us out.

You guys are ridiculous...if I hadn't watched a Panthers game before, I'd think LaFell was a colossal bust reading these comments in here. He's a good #3, serviceable #2, and a terrible #1 (albeit with small sample size). Does every WR on our roster have to have #1 WR potential? LaFell is good depth who knows the playbook, has a lot of starting experience in the system, excels at blocking (for a run-first team), is durable, no issues in the locker room...and yet the hate he gets is on par with Byron Bell. But at least people seem to be on board with re-signing Bell as depth...any mention of re-signing LaFell just gets laughed off.

You can't argue about how terrible he is and then say he's gonna get a good-sized contract somewhere...if he's as bad as everyone says, no team is gonna offer him a decent contract. He has more value to us than any other team so I think he'll accept a modest contract to stay here.
