Panthers are attempting to TRADE Steve Smith

The #Panthers are attempting to trade WR Steve Smith, per source. Given his $7M cap number and age (34), seems unlikely.

 

 

Wow. Can't say I didn't see it coming though.


Ken's Mock Offseason/Mock Draft

04 March 2014 - 05:22 PM

Panther Free Agents to Re-Sign

Ginn ~ 2yr $4 mil

Mitchell ~ 3 yr 7 mil

Wharton - 1 yr

Cole - vet min

Senn vet min

J. Williams - vet min

 

Cuts

Godfrey - (June 1st)makes way too much sense

Josh Thomas - No need to explain

Pilares - See above

 

Restructure/Extend

Greg Hardy

He has to be extended. Him having a $13mil cap hit on the roster really inhibits what we can do in FA. Extend him to a 5 year deal, with the lowest 1st year hit as possible.

 

CJ - A restructuring could free up lots of cap room(depending how much). Makes too much sense not to happen.

 

Free Agent signings

Anthony Collins - 5 yr deal ~ 15 to 19M guaranteed

I’m basing that deal of what Will Beaty got with the Giants last year. I see him getting similar. With rumors of us going after Munroe, it’s clear that we will be going after a OT in FA. Can’t have 2 rookie/young guys protecting Cam on the outside. Collins has always shown promise but didn’t have enough snaps to get a true value of him. He has been very good with more time this season and can be a gem for us. (low cap hit 1st yr deal)

 

Hakeem Nicks - 2yr 12mil (8 guaranteed)

With all the cap maneuvering we have just enough to get Nicks.While Nicks had 0 TDs he still had good production while not being 100% healthy. 56 rec 896 yards, 7 dropped passes. The Giants offense wasn't great by any stretch of the imagination. Eli had a down year, the O-line was crap and the OC was awful(again) which lead to his firing. When healthy(2011 best example), he is very tough to deal with. Great hands, physical, and can high point the ball very well. Has the ability to be open even when covered. Not overly fast but was a deep threat because of his physicality and ability to win 1 v 1 against DBs. We give him a chance to come home and prove himself as being one of the better WR in the league. At the end of the deal, he’s 28 and if he performs well, will demand a mega deal. Win-win for both parties. (Similar to Maclin who got 1 yr $5.5, 3.5 guaranteed)

 
*Alt option to Nicks* Sydney Rice 1 yr deal, similar to Maclin's but slightly cheaper.*

PFF 49ers v Panthers refocused and game grades.

13 January 2014 - 11:21 AM

Will only focus on the Panthers.
 

Carolina– Three Performances of Note

Three Guards, No Positives

The Panthers used a two-man rotation at right guard between Nate Chandler (-1.3) and Chris Scott (-2.4), while left guard Travelle Wharton manned his usual spot, but all three finished in the red. Wharton was particularly disappointing given his strong play since taking over the job back in Week 6 as he finished at -3.2 overall including -4.4 against the run.

Wharton was controlled by Justin Smith on more than one occasion, most notably in the first quarter at both the 9:12 and 0:55 marks where Smith stood him up and got inside to make the tackle. Perhaps his worst play, however, came with 4:47 to go in the second quarter when he tripped on his pull attempt on 3rd-and-goal. Tolbert subsequently tripped over Wharton and the 49ers had their second goal line stand of the first half.

As for Chandler and Scott, Chandler got little movement in the running game and surrendered a sack to DE Tony Jerod-Eddie with 7:11 to go in the fourth quarter while Scott gave up three hurries on his 21 pass block attempts. It was not a good day for Carolina’s guards.

Secondary Mishaps

Over the course of a game, it often feels like only a handful of plays make the difference, a story that best describes the Carolina secondary in this one. Munnerlyn getting beat by Boldin on the double move proved costly as it led to a San Francisco touchdown that made it a 10-point lead early in the third quarter (and even the touchdown could have been avoided as CB Drayton Florence (-1.9) overran Kaepernick on his 4-yard score.)

Rookie free safety Robert Lester (-1.4) whiffed on his only tackle attempt as RB Frank Gore juked him on his way to a 39-yard gain that set up a 49ers field goal. And, finally, perhaps the worst of the bunch, CB Josh Thomas lost his cool with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty with 4:10 to go in the game, just as the Panthers had made a third down stop and were prepared to get the ball back for one final shot to mount a comeback.

Thomas played only three snaps on the day, but his penalty proved costly and summed up a frustrating afternoon for the Carolina secondary.

Linebackers Lead the Defense

As has been the case for most of the season, the Panthers got strong play from linebackers Luke Kuechly (+1.7) and Thomas Davis (+1.8), and even Chase Blackburn (+0.8) got into the action with a nice effort. Kuechly had some issues in coverage, particularly when he fell to the ground on tight end Vernon Davis’ touchdown at the end of the first half, but he did his usual fine work against the run grading at +2.0 and getting in on three stops. He also had a well-timed delayed blitz that led to a sack, one his two pressures notched on five attempts.

Davis was rarely out of position in the running game, grading at +1.4, and he picked up two hits and a hurry on his nine pass rush attempts. Meanwhile, Blackburn was as active as any Carolina linebacker on his 43 snaps. He got in on four stops and posted a season-best +1.3 grade against the run. It was a good final showing for Carolina’s linebacking corps.


Newton graded at +3.5 on his 21 drop-backs in a clean pocket, but only -2.0 on his 12 snaps under pressure.

Byron Bell have up one sack and a hurry. Kallil was the only Olineman that graded positively.
