In Topic: Mid season rookie progress report...all teams

I hate these types of articles less than 6 months after a player was drafted. Impossible to know what you ultimately got for another one to two years at the very least. 


In Topic: Offseason Strategy

28 October 2014 - 07:59 AM

We still have Cam under contract for one more year and we are trying to carry over quite a bit of free money into next year to help with the salary cap. What Moves do you think we do in order to field a more competitive team? Who do we go after in free agency? Who do we cut?

 

 

If I were to guess I'd say we do something like this:

 

Extend Cam possibly keeping his cap hit the same next year as it would if he didn't take the extension. It's around $15 Million I think. If he does that, he can take more money in the years following, but if he takes a team friendly deal, we're gold. 

 

Cut/pay cut for Charles Johnson. We can do something more team friendly with him next year and we know it. This will free up some cap room for the free agents/Cam

 

June first cut Deangelo Williams. It's time. It was fun while it lasted, but it's been time for a while now. 

 

Re-sign Dwan Edwards on another short term kind of deal. He's a solid backup at this point.

 

Re-sign Byron Bell to a back-up worthy contract. He sucks. I won't argue that, but he has starter experience and is familiar with the other linemen on the team. He'd be a decent back-up. 

 

 

Who do we go after in free agency?

 

Jake Long, Michael Roos, or any other fat guy that can play OT at a halfway decent level. Not sure who else will be available either from cuts or who might be worth a look at, but I do know that we need an upgrade at this position badly on either side of the line. 

 

Kick the tires on CJ Spiller to see if he wants to come back to the carolinas. He's getting up in age and has injury concerns, so we might be able to get a team friendly 2 or 3 year deal with him. 

 

Draft:

 

I see us going either OT, DB, WR, and LB in the first 3 rounds. I would not be surprised if we pick up another athletic LB that could possibly start day one or we could groom for the post TD era of the team. 

 

 

Any other contractual moves with the current roster/ FA options you guys foresee available? Who do you want us to sign?

 

Don't be surprised if the name Shaq Thompson from Washington starts becoming a dark horse in Panthers mocks depending on where we pick. Athletic LB who started at S but has transitioned into a two way star at LB/RB for the Huskies.

Winning cures everything

 

This times 1000. People didn't complain last year because we were winning games.

Yes I will say it and don't care whose feelings gets hurt.

 

You white folks irritation towards Cam is like the Elephant in the room that no one wants to honestly speak about. yes, we get it, Your behind only tolerate Cam because ur damn team NEEDS his talent. Some of u are so darn shallow it's not funny anymore. I am amazed at how peevish you are towards this kid. EVERYTHING HE DOES IRRATE U. ESPECIALLY WHEN UR TEAM DON'T win. Which says who u seriously blame for your team loses. 

 

Leave the darn kid alone and let him be himself. No one is getting on that ugly ass QB name Luck. Where are all u white folks in and out of the media going to demand he shave that mess off of his face because he's a LEADER of a team. Damn young man looks like a darn Neanderthal with that mess on his face. He's already as goofy as hell without it.  Yet, every ish Cam does u white folks feel it's okay to attack, thanks to the majority of white folks in the media. But u barely have a darn thing to say about ur own. 

 

 Damn bunch of HYPOCRITES. Always believing u need to teach the black man how to act because ur behavior is so much better. 

 

Also, the many dumb behind black folks who sit and allow the endless attack of this kid by the holier than tho white folks in the media, as if defending him is a not allowed. I guess their paycheck matters more.

 

I personally think it's more of a young/old thing than any kind of race thing. Maybe that's naive, but I've talked with several older African American fans at games who say they don't like it.
