Sounds like Teddy will be Traded


Recommended Posts

A team will trade for Teddy.  We won't get much, but we will not be sending a pick with him.  He has value, just not to us.

A pre-June 1st trade leaves us with 15 mill in dead cap over the next 2 years with almost 34 million in cap space gained, and post-June 1st trade leaves us with 10 million dead cap and almost 39 million cap space saved.   All figures over the next 2 years.

Since most teams are cash strapped this year, and we are not, the bargaining chip is how much of the cap we eat in the trade.  We can say we'll make it pre-June 1st, eat more cap space (which again, we have) and get a pick in a higher round.

As Verge has said, Teddy will not be on the Panthers for competition next year.

I see a pattern of the Panthers just quickly cycling through experienced QB who didn't pan out until we hit on someone. Darnold will have a short leash imo, and if he doesn't produce a winning season in 2021 then he needs to be mentally prepared to be the scapegoat. We'll put the losses on him and send him wandering off into free agency. Rhule is an odd dude.

Trade or cut, we’ll eat 15 mil of his contract but it opens up 8 mil post June 1st. So with a vet in Darnold on a rookie deal, we can still draft Lance or Fields, and spend 5-6 mil towards a vet DB or just make it savings.

The Panthers aren’t drafting Fields or Lance, give me a break. That would be extremely moronic based on what the Panthers just gave up.

We gave up a 6th (meaningless, we have three) and 2 futures. It really wasn’t much. If you’re looking at the money, we’re going to be in a perfectly reasonable spot to do so if one falls. I don’t think we’re trading up anymore though and that’s likely why we went ahead and did this.

Teddy is a first class guy and would be a great mentor to help Sam learn the offense, but that contract makes moving him a must. 

All of that is complete fallacy that keeps circulating around here.

Why are we now giving up on drafting a future franchise qb for Darnold? Like you just said,  if darnold doesn't light it up then he is a FA next year and we have absolutely nothing at QB. I still think we should be looking at drafting one if somebody falls not name mac jones.

I think we might draft Trey Lance.

I think there is weird outrage.  People wanted us to draft a QB and ditch Teddy.  
 

if we did, that means we still bring in another QB.  Darnold doesn’t mean we can’t draft a QB if he falls to 8.  But it means we have hope beyond just being stuck with repeating Teddy again if we can’t land a QB we want.  Darnold might not be any better than Teddy.  But he has potential to be.
