The Panthers have literally not signed a big-time free agent since 1998

That's not necessarily a bad thing, it just is what it is. We haven't signed what we thought was an elite player in free agency since Sean Gilbert in 1998. We haven't had a Colts 2015 offseason since 1996 when we signed Eric Davis and Kevin Greene, both of which were coming off Pro Bowl years.

 

If you decide to become a fan of the Carolina Panthers, this is what you sign up for and should know going in. We'll have a quiet free agency period this year, next year, and the year after that. Why that has kept happening through different GMs, I can only speculate. But don't act like our big free agent signing being some dude named Teddy Williams is something that's only happened this year and has only happened with Gettleman.

Wahle and Lucas were pretty high 2nd tier guys in FA. I dont know what you classify Keyshawn Johnson but he was pretty big named.

Edit: Stephen Davis, Ricky Proehl it seems like we like to target 2nd tier guys not so much the #1 guy in FA

I concede that this was still 10 years ago, but Lucas and Wahle were big-time free agents. Either way though, it's been a long, long time.

Yep and we were one game away from the Super Bowl.
