Panthers pick up Moore’s 5th year

Good. With a capable QB he would be over a 1000 yard receiver every season.

He already is a 1000 yard receiver . . . he'll be a consistent all pro with a good QB.

This is all part of the QB smokescreen. 

Tells the league "see? we are thinking about 5th year options but we didn't pick up Darnold's.  That's because we are gonna draft another QB"

No point in picking up Darnold's until we see whether or not Fields is there at #8. Weird that we drug our feet on Moore's, but whatever. It gets done as expected.

Quentin Nelson just got his picked up.  Lots of good players still haven't had theirs picked up.

I read a lot of NFL teams were moving their feet slow on it because this is the 1st offseason where the 5th-year option, if you pick it up, will be guaranteed no matter what.  It used to be guaranteed only in the event of injury.  So I think behind the scenes we were probably trying to see if we could reach a long-term contract beforehand.

Won’t surprise me if we select a WR in the first, especially if we trade down.

It wouldn't be shocking. Moore and Anderson both are currently only on one year deals. I doubt we pay them both long-term.

I would still pick it up, regardless of whether we take Fields or not.  It sounds like we're making Darnold the starter regardless to start the season, and if we can rehabilitate his value and move him for close to the value we traded for him, I would prefer that.
