so we haven't picked up the option?

edit: sorry, didn't know about linking certain sites. My fault. 

i swear i heard we already did. If no, that's a spicy meatball. Panthers finally trying to keep people guessing on their plans.

We aren’t in any rush to do so. It’ll happen though. 

i just like the idea of waiting until after the draft, so teams still think we might draft a QB.

You can learn a lot about a person in just a couple of weeks. Like if the last team left him with any lingering traumas. 

They may also look at negotiating an entire contract now while his resume` looks less promising, offering incentives rather than guarantees.

Will depend on:

1. How well Sam performs this year, 2. If Fields/Lance falls to us and he shows he's ready by next year. 

 

We only have until the day after the draft to claim the option.  If we don't he's a free agent after the 2021 season.

Didnt know that info, thx. Still works for draft leverage i think. Really after the first round, they can extend him if thats the plan.

I don't see a reason to do so. If Darnold flies off the handle and becomes Mr. Franchise QB the team will have no problem opening their pocketbooks for him. In the more likely event he sucks a big fat twinkie, the team owes him nothing next year.

I kind of doubt we traded away a second round pick just for a one year tryout.

That'd be pretty dumb, honestly.

I would think having another failed QB with a 19M guarantee would be much dumber. Even if he goes Tannehill his first year wouldn’t be that much. What possible reason would a team guarantee that much to a QB in hopes he becomes something he’s never been before? Especially for the 2nd year in a row.

They can restructure the contract to spread the hit evenly.

Speculation has been that this is the plan.

In what way won’t they be paying the same amount?  How does this restructure work? Is it kicking money onto this year? Because I keep hearing this but not one person has explained how it works.
