Rapoport: Panthers expected to be in the mix for Watson.

Yeah, Texans just traded for David Johnson...why would McCaffrey entice them? They would want picks, picks, and more picks.

Jets have picks.

I think that is ultimately what is going to happen.

"Shedding" Teddy's contract creates a whopping $3M in cap space. Houston might take that deal, but they'd probably tell us to just keep Teddy.

Even if he is traded? Regardless $3M is better than nothing.

Financially (and this may have been said in the 37 pages before this) the only way I would do it is we can unload 2 big contracts here---Shaq and TB.  That would be about equal to Watson....It aint happening.  I think he will be a Jet.

Teddy almost HAS to be included in any deal.  We cannot realistically have both Teddys and Watsons contracts on our books at the same time.  I dont think releasing TB is any option either.  So, unless Teddy goes to Houston, or we find another trading partner for him, we would probably be dead in the water.

Releasing TB and trading TB is basically the same thing in terms of the cap.

Spotrac wasn't clear on any difference between a cut and trade but overthecap suggests that we'd get considerably more cap space if we traded TB:

According to this, releasing him would be $20M dead money this year and $5M dead money next year. Trading him would be $10M dead money this year and $5M dead money next year. Also, it says if we trade him post-June 1 it would be just $5M dead money this year and $5M dead money next year...

Then let's hope we can trade him for literally anything. Conditional 7th rounder? Yes please.

More likely we'd have to give up a 4th or 5th (or more) and Teddy for a conditional 7th or something. He has negative value for any team acquiring him.

$10m of his guaranteed money is in the form of guaranteed salary, specifically $10m this year.

Guaranteed salary can be traded, if we cut him we owe it, if we trade him possible not.  That is why you are seeing the different numbers.

    • Well, I took a look at three different measures of offensive line futility in 2020; Football Outsiders Adjusted Sack Rate, ESPN's Pass Block Win Rate and Pro Football References Pass Pressure Percentage. I took the bottom ten of each ranking, the QB with the most starts on the team and then compared them across a wide variety of QB statistical measures from multiple sources(PFR, Football Outsiders, NFL Next Gen Stats). This resulted in a group of 19 QB's from "oft pressured" teams. The amazing thing was that across a very wide variety of QB's(career backups, veteran journeymen, rookies, players with less than 3 years of NFL experience, elite QB's, etc), Sam Darnold managed to finish in the bottom five of almost every statistical category(10 of the 11, to be exact).  So, while I completely understand that he didn't have good protection, none of these QB's had good protection last season, Darnold was just so consistently bad. The only other QB to be as consistently in the bottom five, was Dwayne Haskins.  Frankly, there have been very few QB's in the NFL(if any) over the past three seasons that have been as bad as Sam Darnold. That should be a concern to every Panthers fan. How much of this is Adam Gase? Almost assuredly a decent chunk of it. How much of it is lack of talent around him? Probably a significant portion of it. But how much is just him not being able to have what it takes to be a successful NFL QB? That is the million dollar question. My fear, is that we are going to find out the answer to that question will end up being, "Enough to matter." Adjusted Sack Rate Bottom 10 10. Baltimore - Lamar Jackson 9. Cincinnati - Joe Burrow 8.

    • Roster isnt set yet. Get back to me in August 
    • This is exactly what I was thinking, it would definitely put the Chiefs organization in the position of assuming risk.
