When I took this position I knew that difficult decisions would have to be made along the way. To move on from a storied veteran player is probably the most difficult of all. A decision not to be taken lightly. However, after much thought I feel very strongly it's the right one.
As I've stated many times, all decisions I make will be in the long-term best interest of the Carolina Panthers. Decisions, either popular or unpopular, have to be made for the greater good, and it is imperative to take an unemotional global view.
Sometimes it may appear that short-term interests will suffer, and I can assure you we have no interest in taking a step back from our 2013 accomplishments. Nevertheless, like all NFL teams, we are in transition as we try to get into the best position going forward. When Mr. Richardson hired me I promised him that my goal would be to leave the Panthers in a better position than when I came. All my efforts are in that vein.
Over the next few months we will have the opportunities afforded by free agency and the college draft to improve our roster. We also have young players who will get an opportunity. I have great trust in our evaluation process.
Steve had a wonderful career with the Carolina Panthers. I truly wish him and his wife, Angie, all of God's blessings.
having the top free agent plus hes a DE, cam needs a deal, luke next year needs a deal, billion dollar backfield, best
OT retired, cj, kalil, olsen are great players getting HOF 1st ballot money, he still has to follow whatever jerrry rich wants( just like marty did).best value contracts where one year deal that are FAs. to him the cap would be a problem.
this is the advantage to having good quality depth across the board. not only can a player be replaced when they're injured...they can be replaced when they command too much money.
carolina isn't strapped for cash just because hurney paid out big bucks, they're strapped for cash because they had no quality depth to account for the players they were forced to pay.
In fairness to Denver, this games been an aberration. Yes, it's because of what Seattle has done. However, everything's gone wrong for Denver and right for Seattle. It's just one of those games. SMH, for them.
outside of the jacked up snap on the first play of the game, what has gone wrong?
i can understand if the broncos were shooting themselves in the foot, but denver's just being outplayed.
