Panthers offered "More than a 1st" for Stafford

If I read right, Stafford's contract wasn't going to cost a whole lot more than Bridgewater's.

It would matter when stacked onto TBs cap hit of 23M. That 20M for Stafford was more than the current room you have under the cap. With one signed OL. No 1st rounder. No money for Moton. Or anyone.

Exactly. I don't know how these things aren't obvious.

Not really talking about the cap hit to us. Just comparing their contracts.

It almost happened...

So who finished second in the Matthew Stafford derby? I’m told the Panthers, at one point on Saturday, were to the point where they were in the process of obtaining Stafford’s medicals from Detroit. Obviously, things changed from there, with the Rams’ persistence and aggression winning the day. But if you figured the Panthers’ haul for Stafford was strong—the eighth pick, plus another pick—then I’d say the sellers in this equation would agree with you, because they almost took it.

TB has a 15m cap hit if cut...not 20.

This year if he’s designated post June 1. You still have 5M more next year. 20M you can’t spend, ever, is the entire point. Luke is taking up 7.5M of cap space this year. Kicking it down the road doesn’t make it disappear.

    • Substitute rigatoni.  After you slop some sauce on, who cares what shape your pasta is.  
    • Darnold has proven he knows how to lose, and he was our last choice as a free agent QB. No other teams were interested in trading for Darnold in a QB desperate market. Oh course we are taking Fields and Lance if they fall to 8, and you should be happy about it.
    • I think there's a lot of truth here, but I will say something that may not be popular. I think Cam was a good QB that had could have been great. The GM never did enough to protect his blind side, but Cam never did enough to consistently fix his weaknesses as far as inconsistent mechanics, holding on to the ball too long, and simply consistent solid decision making. I don't know how much of the blame goes to the GM and unimaginative, old school OCs and an an HC, and how much of the blame was Cam's. But, it was a combination. Hell, they even drafted twin towers to help Cam out, but then they never got him an exclamation point at LT. Cam had great moments here--piercing that skin of the elite, but he never completely punched through. And, he is running out of time to get it done. I think this season will be his last opportunity (and I am rooting for him, unless we somehow get in the way).  I say all this because Luke was truly a great MLB. His elite play and consistency was rock solid! I think Luke was a greater LB than Cam has been a QB. I will admit that it's more difficult to be a great QB, but I don't believe that Cam and Luke should always be necessarily linked as the the main reasons why we were semi-successful during the Rivera era. I believe that Cam was an imperfect cracked wooden crutch that also held us back in some respects, while Luke was made of strong aluminum alloy that we could always depend on to get the job done. Just an observation and attempt at an objective opinion based over a period of time. It's my take and I'm sticking to it.
