#3372502 Karl Schmitz anyone?

Posted by jdpanther5 on 20 May 2015 - 09:18 PM

Who was that guy that philly drafted that did punts and kicks in college? I thought he'd be legit but I'm pretty sure he sucks.

Alex Henery? Turns out there's not much value in an ok punter but bad kicker. Pretty sure he's still a FA.

#3370236 Still a litte Confused why we passed over .......

Posted by jdpanther5 on 19 May 2015 - 08:14 AM

He went 29 picks after Funchess, so nearly every team had a shot at him but passed.

#3365296 Panthers in the annual top 100

Edelman 9 spots over Cobb? Ok...

Don't know if Kalil makes it this year, not his best season (though that's not entirely on him). The only guys that make sense would be Luke, Olsen, Cam, and maybe TD and CJ.

I doubt we get 5 though, probably just those first 3. Luke is probably top 20, so either Cam or Olsen.

#3362857 Dean Marlowe big hitting safety..

I took this list from BBR, but it lacks the FB we just signed.

That's because Ward was a tryout guy and these are our UDFAs (save for Blitch, not sure why he's on there as he wasn't even signed after tryouts). Cummings was also just released.

5 LBs seems low, would be surprised if Trusnik didn't make it.

#3362006 Trading Stewart for a 1st?

Posted by jdpanther5 on 10 May 2015 - 09:25 AM

Stewart cap hit: $8.3m
If cut/traded: $13.6m

#3361568 Person: Panthers expected to sign 5 tryout players

Posted by jdpanther5 on 09 May 2015 - 05:35 PM

Excited to announce that I am officially a Carolina Panther... Up next - that 53 man roster spot.

#3361501 Person: Panthers expected to sign 5 tryout players

Posted by jdpanther5 on 09 May 2015 - 04:10 PM

#Panthers expected to sign 5 tryout players, per sources: DE Rakim Cox, OL Ronald Patrick & Jordan McCray, FB Lee Ward, TE Jamie Childers.

Of course we only have 4 open spots, so someone else is on the way out.

#3358669 David Newton ranks our receivers (which is very close to my own).

Posted by jdpanther5 on 07 May 2015 - 07:50 AM

I don't see how Brown is rated below Boykin and Hill.

Funchess (Until he plays)

M. Brown

Those bottom 7 will likely battle out for the last spot, and will probably go to a speedier guy.

#3358258 NFL Free Agent Collins Cleared as Suspect

Posted by jdpanther5 on 06 May 2015 - 06:32 PM

Are these contracts pre-drafted? Like if he signs an undrafted FA contract are all the stipulations and pay already decided by the rookie wage scale? Or can the Panthers juice it up with incentives and stuff?

The amounts are set, save for signing bonuses. However, teams only have about $86,000 they can spend on their ENTIRE UDFA class.

They can also guarantee portions or all of the salary.

#3358255 Game Changers - Wide Receivers ( Devin Funchess )

Posted by jdpanther5 on 06 May 2015 - 06:30 PM

that was funching awesome

We should change the word filter to say "funch" instead of "fug."

#3356110 La'el Collins has begun visits

Posted by jdpanther5 on 05 May 2015 - 09:50 AM

This was why I was wondering what the rules would be about "extending" him imediately. Lets say they tell him, we'll sign you, and immediately "extend you" for 1 year (so instead of a 3 year deal, it's now a 4 year deal), with a big signing bonus and guaranteed money tied to the 4th year, in essense giving him a bigger payday. If that is a possibility, then things get even more interesting because if I can think of this as a random joe schmo, I'm sure most GM's have thought about this too. With that said though, I admittingly don't know all the rules with the CBA so I don't know whether or not that would even be allowed.

UDFAs are locked into 3-year deals, and those can't be altered until after year 2. Once two years pass, however, he can be extended/re-negotiated.

Of course the team still holds all the leverage, because if they don't extend him he becomes a restricted free agent after 3 years.

The only financial difference will be signing bonus money. Teams can only pay out $86,957 in total to UDFAs this year. We gave $15,000 of that to Miley, not sure about the others though.

#3355636 UDFA Arthur Miley chose Carolina over Eagles, Colts and others

Posted by jdpanther5 on 04 May 2015 - 09:58 PM

Maybe it wasn't just the offer, but a $15,000 signing bonus can't hurt.
