Moton or Samuel.... would you change who got Tepper's bag?


Recommended Posts

Now that both are signed by their respective organizations:

Moton's average contract is for 18mil/year x 4 years

Samuel is averaging 11.5 mil / year x 3 years

 

I take the savings of having to pay Samuel to be able to afford Moton 10/10 times and not look back. Signing Samuel would have been a classic Hurney panic move where allowing him to walk allowed CAR to focus their cap allocation this year on Moton. Give me a Top 5 RT over a gadget playmaking WR any day of the week. In fact I between drafting Marshall and signing Moore you will see way more production out of those two then Samuel would have given you especially with CMC back.

 

Curious to see others take

Samuel is (dare I say it) overrated. He reminded me of Philly Brown, if Brown had put on muscles and was a tad quicker.

This team has not had a starting tackle (left or right) since the departure of Jordan Gross.

So, paying a guy that was behind two 1,000 yard receivers make little to no sense in comparison.

The surrounding/corresponding moves tell the story.  WR is oddly a strength on this team, after having just the 1 guy for the better part of our existence.  Letting Samuel walk and focussing on Moton is the better allocation of resources.  

Signing Samuel would have meant having Anderson and Samuel making more than DJ and hes #1.  That paints an interesting negotiation for DJ's next deal. Also it would more than likely have kept Moton on his franchise tag.  Those 2 deals would have cost us 1 or more of our FA's: Perryman, Reddick, Arnold or any combo of moves.

We most likely wouldnt have drafted Marshall, and I would wager more of an attempt would have been made to get Sewell. Could not go into the season with neither Tackle spot secured for the future.

No one is going to say they'd rather have Curtis except for maybe his mother. This is a no brainer.

Before FA there was a fair amount on board of prioritizing Samuel over Moton

Yep. It’s a silly exercise. Only way it would be different is if (this is only hypothetical) say Little and Daley were studs and we had no WRs aside from Moore. Right now, we have 1 known quality T (Moton) and we have a plethora of WR options including better TEs and a healthy CMC.

I don’t recall too many saying that, but I do recall a lot saying they didn’t want to pay Moton a lot. I will say that you can’t fix stupid.

If we had not signed Moton it would have been one of the Panthers all time big mistakes.
