Teddy will likely get cut if we can’t trade him.


Recommended Posts

Teddy Bridgewater's contract guarantee goes from $10 million to $17 million if he's on Carolina's Week 1 roster. 

Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said the team -- which recently allowed Bridgewater to seek a trade -- is taking a "wait and see" approach with the veteran QB. While Bridgewater could take a pay cut and stay on as Sam Darnold's backup, it's most likely the Panthers will cut ties with him this spring or summer, unless a team engages in trade talks. That's a long shot. The Panthers are expected to pick up Darnold's fifth-year option as part of the team's commitment to their new franchise quarterback. 
 

His days on Panthers roster are numbered.  He will likely be gone within few weeks.

Yeah, I think most of us have been expecting that for a while now. The vibe was that it didn't seem like he was a part of the future plans and Teddy hasn't really seemed to be particularly enthusiastic about the Panthers after we have been scouring the earth to find an upgrade.

I really hope we use the cap savings to nut out an extension for Moton 

We already have plenty of money set aside for Moton since we tagged him.  Doing a long term deal will likely yield cap relief this season.

I think a team like Denver will trade for Bridgewater eventually.  Carolina and Denver swap 1st round picks.  Carolina gets a 4th round pick and pays half of Teddys salary.

I expect Teddy will solidify his spot by Week 1, but not sure it will make sense to cut Sam since his salary is reasonable for a backup.

lmao

Teddy won’t be on the team week 1. No one wants him. No Panthers fan wants him. He sucks. Deal with it.

LOL Teddy will be lucky to still be on team by draft night

I don’t think he will.  I think this is his last week on the team as off-season programs start soon.

Dumb to cut him. Too much money. Make his cocky ass a backup. And make him shut down his dumbass burner accounts 

I 100% agree.  You cut him and the Saints scoop him up, never just give a divisional rival a deal like that. He can stay here as a backup, and we continue to seek a trade.

If not traded now, teams will still be looking for QB depth after the draft and before camps start.

If you don't trade him by then, you simply stay patient. There are always injuries/situations that will have teams needing a QB during the season.

There's really no point to keep him.  We've got our new QB and we still have our primary backup in PJ "tank commander XFL" Walker if Darnold isn't the guy.

I suspect he goes to Houston or Denver.

If cut post-June 1st, we're still eating $15 mil but we're also saving $8 mil towards the cap.  Without a cut we're just wasting all of the money.  Then next year it's just $5 mil dead cap to eat and we save $21 mil. 

We've already made our big FA moves so just cut the kid if we can't ship him.  We seemed to have worked our cap situation to work with or without his contract.
