Panthers give Teddy permission to seek a trade

Saints probably. get him cheap, add some leadership and get our playbook.

Our playbook was kind of theirs to begin with. Brady and Teddy brought it here from New Orleans.

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.

FWIW:

We might as well just keep him

$20 million dead cap if we cut him 

When I see a team letting a player look for trades it almost always means they will cut him.  20 m dead cap?  😒

I agree with OP that the Patriots could be a landing spot.

I will also add Washington. Ryan Fitzpatrick is not the answer! He will look good, then horrible, then good, then horrible. There's a reason the guy has never been in a playoff game. 

Also, if SF trades Jimmy G. to the Patriots, Teddy could be a good stop gap, bridge, vet backup for their rookie. They could trade Jimmy, then trade for Teddy and come out with the better picks.

Teddy, do what's right brother. Take a paycut to go to another team for a chance to start. Win-win-win situation.

No chance.

Taking a pay cut never works out for the player.

Teddy has an ironclad contract with the Carolina Panthers and I fully expect him to collect on every penny of it.

I am sure we are in the "untenable situation" portion of him being here, at this point. The dead cap sucks but we probably should have thought about that when we spent all this money on him last offseason. 

$20 mil is the just the dumb tax.

Yep. He didn't choose to pay him that money.

Allowing Bridgewater's representatives to reach out to other teams regarding a trade could help bridge the gap where contract issues are concerned.

There aren't any logical landing spots for Bridgewater where he'd be considered a sure-fire starter, but teams like Denver could use veteran options to compete. The Broncos want competition for Drew Lock, and new GM George Paton knows Bridgewater from their time together in Minnesota.

The Panthers have insisted that they can still bring Bridgewater back this season, even with Darnold in-house. The truth is Matt Rhule has been looking to move on from the incumbent since the end of the season. If a trade can't get worked out, the Panthers could cut the 28-year-old QB and allow him the freedom to select his next destination without Carolina recouping any compensation.

Yeah the team has obviously already made the rounds and hasn't found anything.

Keep him.  Make Darnold earn it.

Darnold already earned it.

Bridgewater's not competing for anything here.

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?

Why did we give Darnold a chance to start?  The culture, the coaches, the OL, the system, the play calling, etc. have everything to do with a player's chance to succeed.  It takes a village.
