REPORT: Panthers interested in Gerald McCoy

Recommended Posts

Doesn't McCoy have a history of injuries too? It seems he was out or at least playing dinged up the past couple of season  when we played the Bucs.

Calm down. I realize they're the flavor of the month right now, but they haven't had a winning season in 12 years and only two winning seasons this century. It was only a couple of years ago when it was the Raiders who were supposed to be the up and coming team and Derek Carr was supposed to be the next coming, then they went 6-10 and 4-12 the past two seasons. At least the Raiders earned their hype with a legit 12-4 season. The Browns were 7-9 last year.

Couldn't have said it better.  Its easy to see the people that listen to the national media pundits.  The first twenty minutes of every NFL Network show on Tuesday was Odell Beckham not at OTAs.   While we had full participation, of course we got no shine.  Keep educating good sir.

Probably the reason we haven't signed Brian Burns and Greg Little. Having that cap space in case someone like McCoy became available. 

Wait...what? 

You're joking, right?

If the asking price is around 10 million a year and he is mostly focused on who can get him to the playoffs, then we stand a good chance to land him if he thinks Cam is back to 100%. Any deal will be cap friendly in year 1. If we do.land him you know that we are all in this year.

That would be a hell of a front 7 rotation again. 

Short, Poe, McCoy

Burns/miller, Kuechly, Thompson, Irvin/Addison

Your right, with the last CBA agreement rookie salaries are mostly set and taken into account with the current year cap, so current cap space has nothing to do with our top picks not signing yet.

If the June money from Kalil being gone isnt there yet, couldn't that still have an effect?  I am not 100% sure how post-date-cut money free ups work.

Example, they may be using they cap space they have now to try to get a player available now, knowing the june cut money will cover rookies.  Rather than sign their rookies now, and not have the money available (and potentially lose a player who would sign with someone else) until the june cut money is available?

Like I said before. It would be worth it watching him destroy the bucs twice a year.

We could land McCoy perhaps even on a discount if he thinks we are his best chance to stay warm and go to a contender. It might take a 3 year deal for 33 mil with a 10 mil signing bonus and all of year 1 and half of year 2 salaries guaranteed. You could sign him for a cap hit the same as what you pick up from Kalil which was around 7 mil this year. Poe is a free agent next year so what you pick up not signing him will pay for McCoy next year so you are only carrying both salaries for 2019 and you get a cap friendly deal on McCoy. The more I think about the idea of a front line of McCoy, Short and Poe the more sense it makes to bring him here if he cares more about going to a contender than just making the most money. If he is hungry then we need him here.

Speculation is purely speculative at this point. 

Good work getting the Hopes of the masses up!!

We have almost $10 million in cap space now even before the Kalil space in a mere week.  Rookie salaries are a non-factor at this point.  We can afford McCoy unless he's asking a stupid amount of money in year one.  By that I'm talking millions in the mid-teens.  The Panthers may simply get outbid by someone willing to overpay for McCoy and if that's the case, I'm glad we don't have the extra $5+ million in cap space to even entertain the idea.  He's not worth blowing up the cap for.
