Real solid signing. I like this move a lot. It's about time we made a move

Cotchery is one of those guys that has respect around the league. He's not a star but he's a nice role player. The money we gave him was significant considering some of the players we let walk.

Still don't think he'll be a #1. The article seemed sure of it, though.

 

 

That article was only implying that Cotchery was the most ( maybe best) WR currenty on our roster,not that he would be the #1 WR  for the season.
 
The Charlotte Observer article said  Cotcherys specific role in the offense had not been discussed.I would not think we signed him expecting to be our # WR.,maybe a # 3 or #2 at best.

( "Cotchery was not a No. 1 receiver for the Steelers. But he has good size (6-1, 200) and is a physical receiver along the lines of San Francisco’s Anquan Boldin. Cotchery said one of his main roles will be to add the veteran presence in the receivers’ room, but he said he and the Panthers had not discussed what his specific role in the offense would be.")

Agreed. It would be downright insulting to see him wear Smittys number next season.

then we should probably expect it unless JR has a say.

I'm only seeing that we signed him to a two year deal.

@RavensInsider: Final three years of Roman Harper deal are voidable

Thinking Wilson meant Harper for the 5 year

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
