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

The mentality that you and GMs have of keeping a flame for pro-bowl but no all-pro talent that with teddy two yards has no chance of ever elevating a team above 9-7 at best while the the best QB to hit the market in his prime in possibly three decades is out there, is why there are so many middling, loser teams out there, Panthers included.

Yeah but Watson isn't going to go to a team that's completely gutted. 

that's why it's a difficult balance. Offer too much and he doesn't want to deal with it.

Tepper sees himself as a "closer" and someone who "gets his guy"

 

I have no doubt we will pursue Watson if Tepper sees fit. He would put butts in seats, sell a fug load of jerseys and we would immediately be a team that has a guy who can win a superbowl. 

We don't have the assets MIA has though so I have a hard time seeing this become a reality

It wasn't the stay that frustrated Cam, it was the exit. In fairness, the franchise made the right move by moving on. If Cam had a Pro Bowl season though, im sure this line of thinking would be a concern. 

 

Also, Cam might be the reason we are on this short list of Watson's to begin with.

Just keep in mind, Watson will have to sign off. That's what makes this deal so challenging. So no matter how sweet the pot, unless Watson waives the no trade clause... it wont happen.

So, he wants out of Houston so bad that he'll refuse to get traded to some team...ANY team?  Agreed he has to waive the 'no trade' clause, but if he has a ticket out of Houston I doubt he'll turn it down even if it were to a crumby team such as the Jets.

These QBs have huge egos too, he's not going to think he can't win here.

We have several advantages:  Geography, a possible reluctance of Texans to trade Watson to AFC, and an owner who after some poo seasons since he bought the team who might be fed up with listening to "football people".  Oh and a big hunk of crap currently starting who has made it abundantly clear he can't win games.  We just have to hope Miami isn't as desperate and willing to part with as many picks as us

Here the root definition of a NTC: A no-trade clause is a contractual clause that allows players to veto trades to certain teams. ... 

This is basically free agency for Watson.

None of the coaches or FO people that screwed Cam over are even with the team anymore, and it's not like letting him go looks like the wrong move right now.

Not bad at all. 

Also not entirely accurate.

The Rams didn't just give those picks away. They traded them for returns (Jalen Ramsey, for example).

Texans get

Our 1st next year

Our 4th 2023

Teddy

Robby Anderson 

I probably would put you on call block if I was the Texans. That is an atrocious trade.

Except it's limited to like maybe 2 teams with the desire and ability to make the trade. Which makes it not free agency at all. He doesn't get to determine how much the other team offers.
