Bill Barnwell's Panthers off-season predictions

Recommended Posts

THE CHARGERS TRADE A SECOND-ROUND PICK TO THE PANTHERS FOR CAM NEWTON

With Philip Rivers entering free agency, the Chargers are left with Tyrod Taylor and Easton Stick on their depth chart. Adding Newton is a rare chance to acquire a 30-year-old former MVP in what could be the middle of his career, and the Chargers can install a roughly similar scheme for all three of their quarterbacks. Newton is signed through only the 2020 season.

 

THE PANTHERS SIGN KELECHI OSEMELE TO A ONE-YEAR DEAL

Osemele is a couple of years removed from his All-Pro form, and his brief stint with the Jets was a fiasco when the team tried to prevent him from undergoing shoulder surgery, but the 30-year-old should be ready for 2020. Osemele's run-blocking would make him a great fit at left guard for Matt Rhule in Carolina.

 

MARCUS MARIOTA SIGNS A TWO-YEAR, $18 MILLION DEAL WITH THE PANTHERS

With Carolina coach Matt Rhule looking for a quarterback who protects the football and offers some mobility if the Panthers want to use RPOs, he goes after a former Heisman Trophy winner in Mariota. This deal locks in Mariota as either a low-end starter or a high-end backup to compete with 2019 third-round pick Will Grier.

 

THE PANTHERS ADD BUD DUPREE ON A FOUR-YEAR, $64 MILLION PACT

Dupree was inconsistent for most of his time in Pittsburgh, but he matched his sack total from 2017 and 2018 combined by racking up 11.5 sacks in 2019. There's obvious risk in paying him, but the Panthers are thin on the edge after Brian Burns and can add a 26-year-old from owner David Tepper's former organization.

Someone was sniffing the Sharpies he found in his desk again, wasn't he?

I like the idea of a conditional pick 1st, 2nd or 3rd, based on 2020 performance, in addition to the high 2nd for Cam. This mitigates the loss if he is awesome and the overpay by LA if he's terrible.

 Osemele was good and I would take him on a cheap short contract but it doesn't really suit the purposes of a rebuild, and I think he will get better offers elsewhere.

 Mariota I can live without. Allen is a good backup who costs a lot less than 9 per.

If we sign Mariota as a starter or backup to compete and he has to compete with Grier we are fugged.

Maybe that's the plan?  At this point nothing would surprise me.

Much rather have Allen or grier, especially since their cost is peanuts compared to 9 million.

Plus the 2nd for Cam is not enough.

 

Teams needs about 10 giant "Ifs" in order to compete, take the medicine this year while getting/giving young player reps..... then go hard in 2021.

I am legitimately starting to question if we really even plan to be good. 

I know that this owner has me pretty fuging scared about the direction.

Dupree is original. I’ll give him that.

If we ship Cam, get the Sudfeld.

Mariota could be an okay tank commander but meh.

With his injury history, I'd be thrilled with a second. I'm expecting him to be cut or traded for a 3rd or 4th. Don't expect there to be much of a market if the Panthers move on.

If we're gonna tank, we should just go full Pickles and play Will Grier.

Get rid of Cam for Mariotta? Oh wee mayne 

Cam goes to the Bears, leads them to a division titled, playoffs, and comeback player of the year. Panthers go 2-14. 
 

typical panthers move
