I'm totally on board with that article. I was told I was insane at the end of the post season when I suggested Hardy was riding one pretty good year.
Do I want him to remain with the Panthers? Absolutely. But I don't want him to suck the last little bit of cap we have. Franchise and hope a team takes the bait and we get more draft picks. Otherwise, we get one more year outta him. I don't think he deserves millions upon millions. He knows this is his (most likely) best shot at cashing in. He is doing what is smart. But he isn't worth it in the end.
