#3356110 La'el Collins has begun visits

Posted by jdpanther5 on Yesterday, 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.

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

Ajayi and McBride would be awesome if they're still available.

#3348038 Panthers trade up to 9th pick of second round - select Devin Funchess

Posted by jdpanther5 on 01 May 2015 - 07:46 PM

Pretty fair trade based on the chart.

Panthers gave up: 487 points
Panthers got: 490 points

#3345827 Yes, Shaq was indeed the BPA

I just hate we took another linebacker, especially when we are in the nickel something like 70% of the time. The value of a 4-3 linebacker just isn't there either unless the guy is a Kuechly/Willis-level talent. And if we're moving him to safety, wouldn't Landon Collins be better?

Getts always talks about value, and not "reaching." This is why "reaching" is a stupid term: to 95% of people this looks like a reach, but obviously Dave doesn't think so.

None of the teams ahead of us took a linebacker, but we - the team with the best LBs the game - felt it was worth it. I just don't get it, you can't win every game 10-7. I understand there were no OTs left, but there were several top receivers still available. Now it's only Smith and Strong, both of which I'll be shocked if they're still available at 57.

#3342356 The case for La'el Collins

Posted by jdpanther5 on 30 April 2015 - 02:13 PM

I don't know how $$$ goes in supplemental, but I assume if there are a ton of teams taking him off their board or not thinking of drafting him until late, he would probably rather go in the supplemental at a 3rd rounder salary then to be a late round pick or an UDFA.

He'd get paid the same amount as the team's original draft slot in the round he was taken. Say we claim him for a second in the supplemental draft, he and our pick at 57 would make the same amount.

#3339224 Mayock's Position Rankings 5.0 released today:

Posted by jdpanther5 on 28 April 2015 - 09:30 PM

Wouldn't be upset if Mayock's top 100 lined up with our picks.

25. D.J. Humphries
57. Devin Smith
89. Trey Flowers

#3338219 Now open for discussion -> The Gettleman Presser Thread

Posted by jdpanther5 on 28 April 2015 - 11:59 AM

Lol, give info, get snarky response.

Now I remember why there is an all pro section.

Well I'm not trying to be snarky. "Minds changed" is hardly "info" as I'm obviously inquiring about why they changed their minds.

But thanks regardless.

Not even close to it. He seemed very ready to take an OT at #25 if the right LEFT tackle prospect is on the board.

cough cough Humphries cough

Panthers not interested in Humphries in round 1.

Well now I'm thoroughly confused.

Agholor for me. Guessing Flowers for Gettleman.

Pie'd first, read second. Good stuff as always.

Blue Goose pass rusher out of Missouri in the second round? Seems unlikely.

#3330655 Greg Hardy suspended 10 games

10 weeks? We probably got the Thanksgiving game just so we'd be the first team he plays.

Florio made a funny.

Falcons host a Monday night game to start the season? Millions watching at home may need artificial noise to keep them awake.
