Panthers Interested In Eric Decker and Hakeem Nicks

Recommended Posts

Most of us love and respect Smith for his years of service. But time to move on from Smith. Decker is much younger player and pretty good WR. He ain't great, but he is solid. At this point Smith is old and just about finish. If some how we can land both Nicks and Decker for a reasonable price. We should take it. Even if it means letting lose Smith. Time moves on and does to the Panthers. The NFL is a business and all the players understand that. Some fans just don't.

 Smith is still better than Decker and we would still need to get a #1. Decker and Nicks are really #2's so we would not be gaining much.We certainly could not pay both of them what they want.

89 is my all time favorite but Id be kidding my self about 89 being better than Decker right now. It's the truth.

If you're going to bring Decker in you HAVE to keep Smith.

Exactly. But smith, decker, ginn, mcnutt, and king doesn't sound too bad. Other than the price of course.

In regards to nicks, do you think that would be smith would be on his way out? Decker will never be a number one. Actually, not sure if nicks will be either.

Not sure why anyone would want either.

It's nice to hear that carolina might actually be interested in a WR though.

I'm not convinced Decker is going to be paid as much as some think. He could be someone who sits out there for a bit as teams are afraid to pay him top dollar and ends up taking a (relatively) smaller deal. Nicks, IMO, will take a smaller deal after last season.

Don't forget we can get a #1 in the draft too. So it's fine with me if these guys are #2 WRs.

I'm talking about the remainder of Smith's contract which is I belive 3 more years left and is for #1 money at the time it was signed, we might not save a lot this year but I think if my memory is right we could save somewhere between $9-10m over the next two years by cutting him.

 

the NFL is about cost versus value, right now after next season I'd be suprised if Dwill and Stewart and Godfrey are still on the team, all those guys have vastly underperformed since being signed to their contracts and we be cut yesterday if not fot the cap hit we would take.

 

Smith in the Cost versus value chart just isnt there and it's not going to get better going forward.

  Smith has 2 good years left but even if you think he doesn't cutting him this year doesn't save much vs what you could get in FA . He is better than Decker right now and cheaper.You pay him this year get a #1 in the draft and deal with next year when it comes and according to what he does this year.That is the smart business move instead of overpaying for another #2.

so you think cutting smith would give the $$ to sign the both of them? You're delusional! Wo would only recoup a/b 2 million dollars by doing it & we'll still be paying him 3 mill over the course of the season. Stop w/ all this it's time to move on crap when you clearly don't even know what "moving on" from him actually means. Nicks said he grew up watching Smith & I doubt he would even still wanna come here if we cut him. The best option would be to keep him, put him in he slot, & make Nicks the #1. Decker is out of the ? Either way. there's no "hoping" he won't want a lot of $ cuz if he didn't he would jus stay where he is
