In light of the craziness that is going on in this world, I would just like to share a little positive vibes to you guys:

My wife and I welcomed our first child on Sunday and he is just incredible. We are so beyond happy and blessed that we have a healthy little boy (who I think will be a future Panther some day *wink* *wink*)

All that said, to the idiots who are hoarding formula and baby wipes... Screw you! Infants need that formula sometimes to live off on until the milk comes in. Stores really need to start limiting how much people buy. 

Lol I posted this in the wrong thread... It was suppose to go in the Corona Virus thread. Oooops lol

Teddy Bridgewater: Bridge or building block for the Carolina Panthers?

Teddy Bridgewater has finally worked his way back to being a starting NFL quarterback, signing a three-year deal in free agency with the Carolina Panthers.

As I wrote recently at PFF, Bridgewater showed during his brief stint starting in 2019 that he can be a viable starting quarterback again. He was able to shake off the hyper-conservative play that had been a feature of whatever glimpses we had seen from him since his devastating knee injury and prove that he still had a higher level of aggressive play in his game.

What is really interesting is choosing Carolina as his destination, because the Panthers are a team in the midst of a full rebuild. The Panthers have a completely new coaching staff going to work in 2020.

Calling Brees a franchise QB at that stage is a stretch. He became one, but he wasn't one in San Diego.

The better example for that scenario is the Broncos and Jay Cutler.

Touché, Scot. However his 2004 season was definitely the coming out party as to what they had and the Chargers failed to recognize it.

This is just an fyi.  I don't know if Bridgewater will count against the comp pick formula for 2021.  He had a voided year for 2020 by New Orleans.  It's not the same as a declined option but I don't know if how the formula accounts for that.

Hey, good news is good news no matter where it comes from!  

Let me congratulate you and your wife.  Parenthood is the most challenging and rewarding jobs I have done, but when your kid looks at you and smiles, it is all worth it.

Imagine telling one of us a year ago we'd be looking at Baylor's Head Coach and Teddy Bridgewater running the show.

Hehe

wonder what the cap hit is this year?

I would guess about $14M on the cap this year based on the parameters in the post above yours.

He gets $24M in Year 1 including the entire signing bonus of $15M. Divide the signing bonus by 3 (since its prorated across 3 years) and only 1/3rd of it counts toward this year’s cap ($5M) so the other $10M of that $24M doesn’t count against the cap this year leaving $14M.

Thats just an estimate based on what was posted though, no idea about any escalators or incentives, ect.

Breakdown of Teddy Bridgewater contract with the Panthers is effectively two years and 40 million. That's what the guarantees essentially cover. They own his rights for a third season at another 20 million but have significant wiggle room should they want to flip him via trade
