No, this made it possible to sign Hardy to a cheap one year deal. You guys are stoopid. Most everyone didn't agree with me either when I said we would win the division at 7-8-1 after the Vikings loss. The Vikings loss was the nail in the coffin, too, guys. You are fans quit acting like up tight bitches, were getting Hardy back.
Use logic, use your own brain, not just the popular belief. Critical think. It actually makes sense he comes back if you cut through the bullshit.
Listen up, nobody thought we'd bring in Jeremy Shockey back in 2011 and it paid dividends. Definitely one reason for why Cam went over 4,000 that year. Shockey made every Panthers fan that wasn't a fan of him before, a fan. We brought in a "washed up" "old" TE at a time where we were supposedly going on a youth movement and when we already had a fine TE, Greg Olsen. Had we just had Shockey and no Olsen its reasonable to say he would have went over 1,000 yards. He brought something extra to our team that year that we haven't got back since he left. It was a great one year stay. There is something about having a future Hall of Famer on the field...
To those that believe bringing in Andre Johnson would go against our youth movement is very wrong.
Andre Johnson is exactly what the doctor ordered. We need a veteran presence in the WR corps that can not only bring the veteran presence, we already have that in Cotchery, but we need the Vet who can put up the stats too. I don't feel it is outrageous saying AJ and Cam would be good for 1,000 yards together. Johnson is a nice big target at 6'3 - 230 we could have a really, really nice receiving corps with or without Cotchery. You'd think getting Johnson makes Cotchery a cut.
KB, AJ, PB, ?, ?
Johnson is the perfect stop gap player and he has a legitimate chance at winning a ship here in Carolina. He could be the piece that we need to get us a ring, the veteran Andre Johnson helping the Carolina Panthers to their first Super Bowl win. Andre Johnson is a future Hall of Famer and he absolutely has some left in the tank and I am sure Cam would be ecstatic to play with him and the team ecstatic to have him...
This is a great opportunity to address a position of NEED via Free Agency by signing future HoF Vet, Andre Johnson.
Nobody is trading for him, he will be released, to those that say he hasn't been released yet. Just a matter of time.
