#3299399 Cryptic Voth tweet

On a similar note, I happened across this tweet (though it doesn't seem too reliable):

@NFLDraftBites
#Panthers Had numerous discussions teams sitting 17-20 about trading up. Conventional wisdom they're targeting Left Tackle they covet.

Browns and Falcons officials were informed at this week’s owners meetings of the discipline that is expected to be announced next week, per league sources. One source said the discipline is expected to be “severe.”

#3298814 Panthers get a 5th and 6th comp.

Posted by jdpanther5 on Yesterday, 03:04 PM

@BlackBlueReview
Well then … remember how the #Panthers got two comp picks, a 5th & 6th?
The 6th has been changed to a 5th. So both comp picks are now 5th.


#3297917 The Yearly Hard Knocks Thread

Posted by jdpanther5 on 24 March 2015 - 07:06 PM

The automatic criteria is something like: teams who haven't made the playoffs in the last two years, teams that don't have a rookie coach, and teams that haven't been on it this decade.

That would eliminate all but the Giants, Redskins, Browns, Texans, Jaguars, Titans, Vikings, Buccaneers and Rams. Of course any other team could volunteer.


#3297534 We sign Ball, Bucks sign Sterling Moore

Posted by jdpanther5 on 24 March 2015 - 02:26 PM

So I guess the Ball's in his court?



...I'll see myself out.


#3297479 CBS Mock

Posted by jdpanther5 on 24 March 2015 - 01:48 PM

Honestly, that was probably the most lazily-written mock I've seen this year. I think I'd rather he just list the picks if that's all the effort he's gonna put into it.


#3297177 Hypothetical QB/Cap Question

Posted by jdpanther5 on 24 March 2015 - 10:14 AM

Doesn't the NFL already have a rule that shaves the cap hit on some veterans?


Just the veteran minimum in the NFL. I'm actually a big NBA CBA nerd so bare with me. The NBA has a "soft" cap, whereas the NFL has a "hard" cap. Of course the NFL's cap is rigid, but NBA teams can navigate over the cap through various exceptions. Typically the best teams are over the cap, but still sign guys via the minimum exception, mid-level exception, and many others.

Every FA that ends the season on your team has some form of Larry Bird Rights: Non-Bird (misnomer), Early Bird, or Full Bird. These rights allow teams to re-sign their own players up to a certain amount depending on what kind of "Bird" they are.

This gives teams more leverage in keeping their own players without "franchising" them against their will. So say Team A only has $2m in cap space and has a high profile FA, but holds his full Bird Rights. Team B has $5m in space, and offers it all to the FA. Even though Team A only has $2m in space, they can outbid the former team via Bird Rights.

There are several restrictions that vary from player to player, and also strict penalties like the luxury and repeater taxes if you abuse these rights (the Nets are an example of this), but I'll stop now.

#3296478 Projecting Compensatory Picks

Posted by jdpanther5 on 23 March 2015 - 08:12 PM

Broncos (4), Texans (3), Ravens (3), Packers (2) and Steelers (1)


#3296471 Projecting Compensatory Picks

Posted by jdpanther5 on 23 March 2015 - 08:09 PM

Aaron Wilson just tweeted out Baltimore's compensatory picks, so they should be rolling in soon.

Also said they didn't get one for Dickson, so maybe he won't count against us.

#3292330 So Whatever Happened to That DB We Drafted from WV?

#3292321 Want speed and a WR that can seperate? Meet Devin Smith aka Mr. Separation

Posted by jdpanther5 on 20 March 2015 - 11:47 AM

Whatever happened to that white kid last year that was supposed to run really solid routes and was always open? Damn I can't remember his name or who draft him, but his name sounded like abracadabra I think.


Abbrederis sat out the year with a torn ACL or something, currently a Packer.
