Which former Free agents do you wish we would have signed if we didnt franchise Hardy?

26 posts in this topic

Assuming we had to give them the same contract they received from another team and we were their team of choice.

 

This isn't a bash the Hardy Franchise tag thread but more of a what have we missed out on thread?

 

Please list the contract terms of whoever you list. Pie for the best answers.

 

Here's my list and upon further review we could have nearly done this anyway!!...

 

1.Eugene Monroe 5 yrs 37.5 Million, 17.5 guaranteed (first  2 years salary fully guaranteed + 11 million signing bonus

 

14 cap hit -3.2 Million (1 million base salary +2.2 million prorated signing bonus)

15            -7.7  Million  (5.5 base + 2.2 prorated signing bonus )

16              8.7 Million   (6.5 base  +2.2 prorated signing bonus)

17             8.95 Million (6.75 base + 2.2 prorated signing bonus)

18             8.95 Million (6.75 base + 2.2 prorated signing bonus)

 

2. James Jones 3 yrs/ 10 Million,  3.65 Guaranteed

 

14 cap hit 3.8 Million (only 500k guaranteed past 1st year0

15             3.1 Million

16             3.1 Million

 

For Bonus points I would have kept Steve Smith and not picked up Roman Harper

 

But back to reality... I don't know a single offensive tackle out there worth a poo but 2 receivers remain. Cotchery and Lance Moore, I'll take either or both pending the price please.

If we diminish our pass rush, I believe we would need to score more points than those two would afford us.

If we go long-teem with Hardy it's worth it. If not, this was a severe miscalculation.

I'd have liked to keep Mitchell. I think he offered a lot to the defense in terms of being a leader and a guy who set the tone for the team. Replacing that will be hard.

We could've signed someone to be a stop gap to replace the pass rush gained from Hardy.

Then, of course, a receiver. Not sure who.

Anthony Collins as well.

With what he's gonna get paid if he stays here, we could have signed anybody.  With what he wants to get paid, we could have signed everybody.

    • ESTP superhuman checking in. http://www.personalitypage.com/ESTP.html
    • You would think, after years of childish behavior by many politicians that THIS is now the time to start "adulting" in DC. Maybe my gerrymandered district is about to get hit and made more competitive?  Or the demographics show my white, conservative base shrinking over the next decade?  Regardless, this is a great time to start reaching across the aisle to give those independent voters something to think about. Given that Bernie is going to throw out a universal coverage law, this might put a little motivation on the right to do some fixing to Obamacare instead of going full "socialist" with Universal Heathcare (how turrrrribbble!!).  Sometimes, you have to pick your battles, and what we've seen thus far is Trump's battles stink.
    • Based on that article, it seems that a sale will only be made if the buyer agrees to not move the team out of Charlotte. I hope that holds up.
