Panthers give Teddy permission to seek a trade


Recommended Posts

If Teddy ends up going back to the Saints, starting and playing winning football for them, then it's going to tell us a lot more about our coaching than it will about Teddy.

It will say more about the quality of their roster, and if that happened they will inevitably lose in the wild card or divisional yet again. They couldn't get over the hump with Brees, so what is Teddy gonna do?

New England would be his best bet to succeed.  He could backup Cam and if Cam struggles, he could jump into the starting role. 

Denver could be an option. If Lock doesn't step up then they'd have a security plan. That way they don't have to draft one and create controversy. Then they could grab a great player at 9.

This sounds a lot like Teddy thinks there’s a market for him and the team is just like “go see for yourself buddy, good luck”. Like what, he thinks the team hasn’t been trying to trade him?

Why would another team give Teddy a chance to start when the Panthers, who were a bad team last season, are saying he wasn't good enough for them?

I mean we traded for Darnold....

Teddy Bridgewater will be allowed to seek a trade following the Panthers’ deal to bring in Jets quarterback Sam Darnold, according to a report by Ian Rapoport at NFL Network.
 
Finding a willing trade partner won’t be easy. Bridgewater is coming off a disappointing 2020 season that saw him post more turnovers than touchdown passes. He also has a cap hit this year of around $23 million, the highest on the team.
 
The trouble is there may only be a handful of teams who think Bridgewater would be an upgrade over their current starters. The Broncos, Bears and Giants come to mind, to name a few.
 
Hopefully Bridgewater lands on his feet and gets another opportunity to start, but it seems like a long shot at this point.

Come on Houston. Show us you still have it and want to fight us for that first pick in 2022 (if they haven't already traded it away).

We will cut him and he will sign a contract as a backup and do well in that roll. What he always was and should have been.

I don’t think the Panthers could have made a bigger mess of the QB situation. They cut Cam with one year left on his contract and sign/overpay Teddy for 3-years. During the off-season make it known to everyone that they are done with Teddy (terrible negotiation tactics) after only one year But still own his big contract. And now have the young/unproven with hopefully hidden potential Sam Darnold as the QB.

To me, it looks like a bunch of rookie decisions/mistakes have been made at the most valuable position. It also seems like Tepper is meddling and I wonder if that is why the Panthers are where they are.

So, if I'm reading OTC correctly, cutting Teddy post June 1 still saves us $8M towards the cap, which pays Darnold's salary with a couple of million to spare. Teddy gets $15 M from us (plus $5M next year) plus whatever the other team pays him to be a backup.

That's what I understood. If we trade him, chuckle, we pay 10 million of his salary this year. Looking like a cut incoming but who knows at this point. Pressure and desperation makes for odd decisions in the NFL.
