Panthers Sign Avant to 1 Year Deal


Best Answer Frizzy350, 07 April 2014 - 06:51 PM

Just because you have bodies at a position doesnt mean you don't have a need. If any one thinks we can compete with this current crop of receivers, you are sadly, hilariously, mistaken. 

 

Its as good if not better than last year's group at receiver, and we won the NFC South with those guys.

Well...We may not have the bestest WR corp. in the league. But if we can fill it out with a 1-2 round WR, we may be good to go. We are not going to set the world on fire, but, our drops should diminish. That alone is worth the price of admittance.

Fill out the roster in FA, then draft talent. Gman has been true to his word so far. I can live with that.

Good signing right here. If we get some young WR's in the draft, a vet like Avant will be key.  Plus, old dude catches everything thrown his way.  Will be a great WR to have out there on 3rd downs.

Cotchery was a veteran presence. Now we have 2 veteran presences at WR

So do we still double dip or nah...

In my opinion a group of the following would be fun to watch...

1. Cooks, Avant
2. Cotchery, Latimer, King
Slot: Underwood

Love it.  Cotchery and Avant will be great mentors for the young studs we (hopefully) take in the draft.

if they pass on an early WR because of this i will be highly upset. decent signing for a #3 guy, nothing more.

watch avant be a 65,000$ mentor to the young WRs, then get cut before the season starts. then resigned at some point, thus not fully guaranteeing his contract.

 

panthers are focusing are GREAT clubhouse WRs that dont have the drops..... i wonder why??

Good signing considering who was left available. Still need big help from the draft.
