Teddy B to the Broncos for a 6th!

I wasn't reading 22 pages to see if this had been mentioned, but this is a HIGH 6th rounder for Teddy.  We lost a comp pick 6th for Darnold.  This is essentially like a comp 5th rounder as only 6 teams pick ahead of us at the top of the round compared to next to last in the comp section of the round.  It's a difference of like 35 selections, which is equivalent to an entire round.

Two weeks ago the Huddle said Teddy’s contract was untradeable. We got something for Teddy, this is a win. 

FIFY.  I wasn't one of them, by the way, and I have the receipts to prove it.  While Teddy failed our expectations, he is a legit backup.  Chances were if we let him go for peanuts, someone would bite.  Denver was the likely choice and they made it happen.

It was great we got a return, but Breer was right to a degree. We had to eat most of the contract for this to work.

His contract WAS untradeable - Teddy had to restructure/adjust compensation by cancelling the 3rd year and Carolina still had to eat money to make it happen.

Guess what?  A re-work was always an option and had been discussed in that thread several times, but people just thought Teddy sucked too bad to be traded.  It wasn't the contract, but their personal bias about Teddy that they thought made him untradedable.  Contracts are not set in stone.

Point being, Teddy is gone and the contract wasn't a major obstacle.

You said the contract wasn't untradeable and that you 'had receipts', not that it 'wasn't a major obstacle', it was pointed out that the contract had to be reworked to facilitate a trade, and now you're saying it was all bias against Teddy and you never said the contract wouldn't have to be reworked. Every player has a contract so yeah, the one he had was by definition untradeable if it had to be altered to make a trade happen.

Whatever though, the team has moved on and that's a net positive.

Chalk it up dude, pat yourself on the back, you won! I have a job to get to in a few minutes and don't have time to argue freaking semantics.  I hope you have a wonderful day!

He wasn’t here for the buying portion. He is more of a cut your losses and move on kind of guy.

For that crap contract and Bridgewaters playing level a 6th and splitting the cost was a win. Thank god Hurney will be negotiating WFTs contracts from now on.

    • But seriously, we gotta stop running Howell so much. 112 yards is nice, but 15 carries is too much. He's had double digit carries every game so far. I know he said he wanted to run more this season, but honestly 3-4 designed runs for him to keep the D honest is probably the right number. Another 3-4 scrambles. That's 6-8 carries. That feels about right. He's more athletic than most gave him credit for being coming into this season, but he's not Lamar Jackson by any stretch of the imagination. We're running him too much.
    • I agree that ESPN is anti Panthers, but I think the reason has little to do with politics or morality. ESPN like most media companies when covering sports, treats any smaller media market team without a big media star like dog poo. I am so sick of ESPN sucking the dick of the NFC East with wall to wall coverage of their team's practice squads when the entire division has basically been garbage for over a decade, meanwhile if we're not sporting the likes of a Cam Newton, the Panthers get David Newton attempting to do whatever it is that he does every so often, but not so you'd really notice. If you ever really wanna know which teams ESPN gives fug all about, just watch the draft and take note of which teams are drafting when they go to commercial.  Those are the teams they don't care about, one of which is almost always us.
    • that was clearly downed by 1 at the 12 yard line.
