  1. I think Chark is more of a fit since we need someone to take the top off the defense. I wouldn't mind signing Leonard Floyd to a short-term deal to start at OLB opposite Burns either.
  2. I can't say I'm a HUGE fan of it, but I understand the rationale as he's a complete back that catches out of the backfield and will probably be our rookie QB's safety valve. Also, it's not that bad of a contract - it's really a 2-year deal and then the Panthers can move on without too much of a hit, if necessary. There's no guaranteed salary after the 2024 season, so cutting him out right would leave just under $3m of dead money and free up just over $5m of cap space. We'd just be on the hook for the remaining prorated signing bonus: https://overthecap.com/player/miles-sanders/7844
  3. Just looked it up, based on AAV it's the 20th ranked contract among TEs. Similar to Tyler Higbee and Josh Oliver, less than Will Dissly, CJ Uzomah, and Logan Thomas. Not terrible I guess.
  4. Woof, not sure about that contract given how slow the TE market has been so far?
  5. So if I'm reading this right, his cap number for 2023 is only $2.72m, right? $4.92m signing bonus prorated over 3 years is $1.64m plus the fully guaranteed $1.08m salary for 2023. edit: Looks like there's also a $350k workout bonus so it's $3.07m per OTC. Not bad.
  6. Bro, what WR & TE combo do you think you're getting for $4m? (He has $8m guaranteed over 2 years so that's $4m per) This signing does not preclude the Panthers from picking up a vet WR or TE and the bridge QB signing is vitally important. If you haven't heard, the only two WRs that have signed so far are Allen Lazard and Jakobi Meyers. I don't think any TEs except the Saints guy signed? And we're most likely taking a WR or TE at 39. Patience.
  7. Kunkel says we're going with Gonzalez over Pinero next season
  8. Believe Gantt confirmed Tuttle was signed to be the starting NT
  9. So in a 3-4 base I'm thinking: Brown - Tuttle - ??? Burns - Shaq - Chinn - Luvu on early downs / Burns - Shaq - Luvu - Haynes on obvious pass rush downs? Horn - Woods - Bell - Jackson
  10. I'm a little surprised the Bucs don't want to interview him honestly. Seems like it's Washington or back to KC. It's been reported that the expected OC in Arizona under Gannon will be Browns QB coach Drew Petzing
  11. Not gonna lie, feels like a weird thread when the Eagles O put up 35 points, 25 first downs, and 400+ yards with the only turnover being their QB just flat out dropping the ball. The Eagles D cost them that game.
  12. There's definitely the job security part to consider. Another sub par year and without Arians and Brady, the Bucs could decide to move on from Bowles.
  13. Having full autonomy over playcalling under a defensive HC would be one reason
  14. Bienemy will likely end up staying in KC or going to DC. His only shot to have full playcalling duties is under a defensive HC. Fair or not, no one in the league is going to give him credit if he's an OC under an offensive-oriented HC.
  15. My sense is the reason Staley's title is TBD is because if we don't land Johnson, Reich will retain playcalling duties and Staley will be the OC in name. I read somewhere else that Campen has experience as a run game coordinator so he could take on both OL and run game duties. Thomas Brown would be a nice fallback option too, but if the Bucs want him they can offer playcalling since Bowles wouldn't be involved there.
  16. If Steichen heads to Indy and brings along Johnson or Patullo or if they backfill the Eagles OC gig, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Staley get the OC title. If Reich plans on calling plays anyway, might as well give Staley a promotion in title.
  17. I feel like Joe's gotten a bit lazy lately...very surface level thoughts/analysis.
  18. Mike Silver reported he's expected to retain most, if not all, of the 49ers defensive staff. Wonder where that leaves Holcomb. I think Holcomb is a great 4-3 LB coach, but that's probably his ceiling in the NFL.
  19. Pretty sure you're thinking of Matt MilleN, who is a different person than Matt MilleR lol. Matt Miller joined ESPN last year from Bleacher Report: https://espnpressroom.com/us/press-releases/2022/02/matt-miller-returns-to-espn-as-nfl-draft-analyst-adding-more-robust-coverage-to-espn-premium-editorial-content/
  20. Matt Miller's latest ESPN mock posted today has him falling to Carolina at 9 One can only hope...
  21. This is why I think Arizona is a much better potential trade partner than Chicago. Chicago likely trades down with either Houston or Indy (division rivals so can see Houston trading up to #1 to ensure they get the guy they want). Chicago settles in at 2 or 4. Panthers can see who goes top 2 and if the guy they really want (I feel like that's Stroud) is there at 3, then they make their move. Teams typically get ~200 points above value when trading down, so #9, #93 and the 24 1st (slotting it as a mid-first round pick) would be a fair deal IMO. Maybe throw in a pick swap as well (i.e. Panthers 2024 2nd for Cardinals 2024 3rd).
