Wait, he didn’t resign, he RE-SIGNED!

that or the espn reporter covering our team isn’t qualified to report on intramural softball

 

Anyway, I wish Luke the best. One of the greatest of all time.

 

Raise your hand, everyone, if you think David newton can tell the difference between resigned and re-signed.

Of course probably only half the crowd probably knows this and the other half didn't and thinks I'm a grammar nazi for noticing and pointing it out.

He reportedly resigned back before free agency even started.

I don't really think there's any intrigue to it, honestly. He probably just needs a break.

He's retired and has millions to live off of. Why not take a break for a while?

Eventually, but it could be argued we weren't ok with him here.

We knew he wouldn't stay forever. We'll start winning again soon.

Sure hope so.

He certainly was something special, though. Like Julius Peppers and Steve Smith, there won't be another one like him; they are just legendary players, not just legendary Panthers.

There will be others to come. More legends in the making.

David Newton is reporting that this actually happened before free agency started.

It has been confirmed that it's not health related.

Yes.

Probably headed to Washington or Buffalo like everyone else.

I believe he will end up in Buffalo, unless he's being courted for a network job somewhere....

Imagine it's tough being that close knowing you could still be out there and doing it at a high level. He'll be missed but I think it's better for the man to not revolve his life around football for awhile and cherish the other aspects. I'm sure he'll be back in some capacity in his middle age.

Probably so. Thats twice he left us hanging.

Quite the opposite actually. Both times he had a plan and did it with consideration for the team. First time he retired while the team was going through changes anyway with a new coach. The second time he left while the FO was going through changes with a new GM and scouting crew. That's not leaving anyone hanging. I wish Luke the best of luck in whatever he decides to do and thank him for raising the bar for MLB's.

    • Quoting from today's presser via The Athletic... “We have purposely taken the approach of developing Sam – and all of our quarterbacks this spring – as a drop-back passer and put a lot on them,” said Rhule, the Panthers’ second-year coach. “More than most teams will probably do with a quarterback – more than probably the coaches are comfortable with. “But for me it’s about just putting so much on those guys — not giving them a bunch of easy plays where they can go out and feel confident and look good,” Rhule added. “Our defense is giving us a lot of different looks. So I want to stretch those guys and see what they do well and then we can be more targeted in training camp and into the season.” The first part of that statement interests me, specifically the part about developing their quarterbacks as "drop back passers". Neither Bridgewater nor Darnold would rightly be seen as big run threats (neither are statues either, but still). And of course, the team passed on drafting a quarterback who was. It makes me wonder if Rhule and/or Brady aren't necessarily concerned with superior athleticism at the quarterback position. You'll note he talks a lot about mental preparation here, but physical...not so much. Arguing against that idea though is the fact that the team seems extremely interested in athleticism at pretty much every other position. With that said though, there are plenty of successful teams whose quarterbacks aren't amazing athletes (including the one that captured last year's Super Bowl trophy). So is this an indicator of Rhule's QB philosophy or just an emphasis they have right now?
    • We don’t need to pay monk anything big, that’s for sure and we always need shooters
    • Hard no on that. Taking dumb penalties is not smart. Especially when you get a rep as a dirty player.
