Moton signed to 4 year, $72M deal


Recommended Posts

What is this strange modality? Retaining talent we've developed? Investing in our offensive line? Securing talent to protect our QB?

What team is this, even?

This is so goddamn refreshing compared to the many years of letting homegrown talent just walk. It's the changing winds in Carolina, and that is going to come with a lot of winning in our future.

There's a new Sheriff in town...

Yep, way to much money for him to gamble on.  Take the massive guaranteed amount and move on down the road.  He still has an extension in him later if he continues to play well.  Too much risk of him getting hurt on a one year deal

You guys notice how tight lipped this FO has been so far?:

  • Horn wasn't really on anyone's radar for us to draft
  • Darnold Came out of Nowhere
  • Nobody thought we would sign Moton long term until basically 20 minutes before it was announced. 

The stuff with Teddy was all Tepper's doing, that's why everyone knew about it, and everyone knew we needed a QB so we were obviously in the Watson discussion. 

But yeah. It's a new time. I like it. 

Horn was who everyone thought we’d get if Sewell wasn’t available, especially after we got Darnold. After Sewell went at 7, there was 0 surprise when we took Horn. I don’t think we’ve been crazy tight lipped. Darnold was definitely a surprise when it happened but there were rumors linking us to everyone and it wasn’t like we didn’t try to get Stafford or look into Watson first. They’ve been pretty up front about being in every conversation.

Very interesting point.

There's been a pretty big disparity between what was predicted to happen and what actually ended up happening on a number of fronts. That's one of the reasons I believe all the hyped up Watson talk was probably bullsh-t. The Fields talk certainly was.

It may indeed be that what David Tepper wants might find its way to the media, but history so far has taught us that what Tepper wants isn't necessarily what Rhule and Fitterer are going to do.

Mind you, being able to keep your plans quiet doesn't automatically equal correct decision making, but it's still a good thing on its own.
