Keep thinking that. Teddy is as good as gone 

Don't get me wrong if I'm GM I'd trade him for a bag of Doritos to lose that contract of his but every team probably figures we are desperate and will just wait to hope he is cut. It's not like he is a hot commodity so.if he isn't cut I'm sure teams won't be losing sleep over it and talking about the one that got away if they don't get him. Damn, you could replace 15 TD's with almost any QB. I bet Will Grier could even sling the piss out the ball all season and luck into 10-15 TD's.

I bet there'd be plenty of teams that would have TB as a backup for backup money but yeah, no one is eagerly awaiting offering him a starter job.

Makes no sense to release him. Trade him or keep him as a backup 

I suspect keeping him is no longer an option. I don't think the relationship between the current staff and Teddy appears to be the best. 

Also, cutting him post 6/1 saves us $7.9M. That ain't chump change.

I think your thread has brought forth some interesting discussion-rework his deal and trade him.  I am not certain teams will wait for him to be cut because there are others interested.  Still, you will have a bigger market after the draft for trades (Minshew, possibly, Garropolo, etc.  But some teams and players seem to be quite content with big name backups (Raiders, Bills, for example).  To be honest, If Atlanta does not draft a QB this year (and they shouldn't) Teddy would be a great backup for Ryan.

Pretty sure TB wanted him to back up Brady last yea before we overpaid him and let him start. That hasn't changed. They have Blaine Gabbert as backup now, but Bridgewater would be an upgrade if he's cool to restructure.

    • Tepper could certainly do that without worrying about the cost, but I believe it would be at least a season too soon.  Especially, for an owner that kept Rivera and Hurney around as long as he did.  I see Rhule getting 3 seasons minimum before Tepper begins to get impatient. Darnold was a clearance aisle special in comparison to what some teams are willing to give up for a franchise QB.  If Sam crashes and burns, Rhule will likely get at least one more bite of the apple before being dispatched by Dave.  
    • I'm one to give us a reset on the back to back winning season narrative.  This is a new regime with a new owner.  The days of Fox and Rivera are gone and so should the whining about back to back winning seasons. If Rhule and Co. come out and have a winning season I won't be crying about waiting until 2023 for another winning season.  I believe we'll continue that success. If we start 4-0 It will give this team some great confidence for the rest of the season.   IMO it all lies on our O-Line and Darnold.  If the O-line gels together and Darnold limits the mistakes we'll score enough points to win.   Our defense is going to keep us in games and might even win one or two. 
    • I happen to enjoy listening to 89.  His takes are usually pretty brutal but accurate.  I think this is a next step for him and he'll move into the booth full time.  Hopefully for the Panthers. He is and always will be a Panther.   He may have had some wounds from being let go and he exacted his revenge on us.  Quite brutally in fact. His heart has softened and he is where he belongs. He'll be our first drafted HOFer.
