Is there a trade looming?

Recommended Posts

It appears we are on the hunt for a big back... with the front office knowing it’s go big or go home... do you think we stay put, trade or wait for cuts?

 

MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Panthers are trying to find a backup who can "ideally" take "a lot" of Christian McCaffrey's short-yardage and goal-line work.

Last year, six of McCaffrey's seven rushing touchdowns came on runs inside the four-yard line, and 17.6-percent of his total carries came with less than three-yards to go. If the Panthers find a capable short-area back, that would somewhat limit McCaffrey's ceiling. But the good news is the Panthers backup backs (Jordan Scarlett, Reggie Bonnafon, and Cameron Artis-Payne) aren't exactly big threats. Not to mention McCaffrey's insane passing-game workload. While it's a situation worth monitoring, this likely amounts to close to nothing for McCaffrey's fantasy value. He still needs to be drafted within the first four picks.

Yeah let’s get someone like CJ Anderson and never use him 

Exactly what I was thinking. Didn't we already go down this road last year?

Our FB should be able to do that if need be. I don’t see how this is true and just rumors as last year we literally cut that exact type of back for never using him

We had the perfect fit in CJ Anderson, but decided to keep him on the bench and then get rid of him.

Our FB looks like poop in short yardage. There's a reason we stuck with CMC when it counted. Coaches want to keep their jobs.

What situations have you seen that? Honestly last year I barely saw anyone with the ball in their hands running except for Cam and Christian

He nearly cost us a TD last season with a terrible slow run with no push, and then they sent in CMC and we scored. Our FB doesn't look good at all to me. Need a faster power back.

Seems effective. I would think Armah could handle those duties if necessary if CAP or HOLYFIELD can't.

Jourdan Rodrigue kind of threw cold water on this...  And I'm not sure the idea of a trade isn't being taken out of context...

For background, Albert Breer of the NFL Network tweeted some things he had "learned" from Panthers camp and said they were looking for a bigger back to punch the ball close to the end zone to save some wear and tear on CMC.

Personally, I think this was lazy reporting based on Rivera saying they wanted to limit some snaps for CMC but not touches and him elaborating on it without any true insight.

There is obviously a battle for a backup RB, but the team has a big back in Armah.  They would like to have someone who ideally could do the same things CMC can do.

Typical lazy reporting from the national guys IMO

I read Breer's treats. Never did I get the sense that Panthers are in the trade market.

I thought Breer was just talking about evaluating the best guy among CAP, Scarlett, Holyfield...

I see Clowney is trending on Twitter and its rumored he is being traded. Does he fill the backup RB slot here?

Only trade we should be looking at right now is for Trent Williams. Get Cam his LT and lets go win this super bowl this year!
