Panthers give Teddy permission to seek a trade

obviously the team wants Teddy to see what his real value is and then ultimately restructure and release.

I think the renegotiation is to keep him at a reasonable rate if he can't find another team  That sets the price. I wonder if new Orleans is interested now that Teddy knows our whole system. Not sure we should be ushering him out so quickly. We could use a cheap vet to mentor these guys. Just not 22 million for a timid starter.

While Teddy might end up being cut this June, I believe there is a good case for keeping him 1 more year as a backup.  Then trade/cut him after the 2021 season.  What would be the cap hit for 2022 if Teddy were cut next year, 5 mil?

That would be my fall back position. Because unless you can trade him and only be on the hook for signing bonuses and guaranteed money, you end up eating a ton of dead cap if you cut 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?

Because every team differs in scheme. What wasn't good for the goose could be great for the gander...

Ultimately I think Teddy will be cut and designated as a post June 1st cut. He would be a $15 million dead cap this year but we would save almost $8 million in cap.

Yeah I think Teddy will end up with the Saints again after we cut him. When Teddy is on a loaded team with brilliant coaches he can come off the bench and really do well. I think he'll wrap up his career as a top quality backup.

Speaking up backup quality QBs, Darnold should be facing the same situation soon enough as well.

Yeah, apparently we are a big payday for every future journeyman backup QB now.

    • 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.
    • Seeing Brandon Beane in the top 5 of GM's that are drafting makes me die inside. fug JR, Bean would have been amazing here. Sigh. 
    • I mean it's the same for any of these professional talking head analysts.  Jeremiah, Brooks etc would all fail as GMs. That's why they're talking heads rather than in actual Front Offices.
