How bout Carolina ?

I love Ekeler the player, but he's asking for a trade because he wants an extension and the Chargers don't want to give him one.

In a vacuum I'd be fine with it, but not a few months after we traded away a better and younger player in CMC.

If we secure Foreman for a few years, I would absolutely love to land a guy like Achane or Spears in the draft. Get a home run, pass catcher and Hubbard can fill in when needed.

Takes away the need to reach on Charbonnet or Gibbs at 39 and be patient at the spot come late April.

If we land Spears I'd trade Hubbard for a late round pick and roll with Blackshear as RB3.

@rayzor, here are some of the names and info from Person's article on potential free agent connections...

S Jessie Bates (Bengals): With Jeremy Chinn likely moving closer to the line in Ejiro Evero’s 3-4 scheme, Bates would be a great complement to Xavier Woods on the back end.

ILB Tremaine Edmunds (Bills): Edmunds is the middle linebacker in Buffalo’s 4-3 base, but would look good in any defense.

DL Dre’Mont Jones (Broncos): Jones started a career-high 13 games in 2022 during Evero’s lone season as the Broncos’ defensive coordinator...Jones could slide into the other defensive end spot opposite Derrick Brown.

WR Jakobi Meyers (Patriots): Meyers should cash in. Because he’s young (26) and coming off a productive season (67 receptions for 804 yards and six TDs), Meyers likely will price himself out of the Panthers’ plans.

TE Dalton Schultz (Cowboys): It makes more fiscal sense to draft a tight end, but Schultz would be a huge asset for a young quarterback.

Edge Yannick Ngakoue (Colts): The 6-2, 246-pound Ngakoue spent his first four seasons in Jacksonville under defensive coordinator Todd Wash, the Panthers’ recently hired defensive line coach... Ngakoue then bounced around four teams the past three seasons, including last year with Reich in Indianapolis.

LB Bobby Okereke (Colts): This seems like a no-brainer. As mentioned, the Panthers could stand another inside ‘backer And the 26-year-old Okereke was with Reich in Indy the past four seasons, ranking among the top 15 in the league in tackles each of the past two years. One obstacle blocking a reunion with Reich in Charlotte: Bears coach Matt Eberflus

TE Mike Gesicki (Dolphins): Gesicki saw his targets decrease by a stunning 54 percent in Mike McDaniel’s first season in Miami. But Gesicki caught at least 50 passes in the three previous seasons and is still only 27.

WR D.J. Chark (Lions): The Panthers needed a receiver who could stretch the field even before sending Moore to the Bears. That’s where Chark comes in. 

Edge Ogbonnia Okoronkwo (Texans): Fitterer identified Luvu and Reddick as two athletic pass rushers whose best years were in front of them. Okoronkwo looks to be in the same category:.

WR Mecole Hardman (Chiefs): The Panthers are among the teams interested in the speedy Hardman... He was headed toward his best year last season — with six touchdowns in eight games — before injuries sidelined him.

WR Parris Campbell (Colts): Another fast guy! And another player with ties to Reich. There’s a trend developing here. Campbell was injured his first three seasons, but stayed healthy during a career year in 2022. 

RB Jamaal Williams (Lions): Williams could rejoin former position coach Duce Staley in Carolina

WR Mack Hollins (Raiders): Hollins was pretty far down the Eagles’ depth chart when Reich was in Philly. But the 6-4, 221-pounder tripled his career best with 690 receiving yards last year in Vegas, plays special teams and is a “glue guy” in the locker room. He also shouldn’t cost much.

G/C Daniel Brunskill (49ers): With guards Austin Corbett and Brady Christensen recovering from serious leg injuries, bringing in an experienced interior lineman such as Brunskill seems prudent.

C/G Evan Brown (Lions): Like Brunskill, Brown is another interior lineman with position flexibility.

LB Alex Singleton (Broncos): The former Eagles linebacker was one of the league’s best values last year. After signing a one-year, $1.1 million deal, Singleton amassed 163 tackles — the most by a Broncos defender in 15 years — as an inside linebacker for Evero. Insert eyeball emoji here.

RB Boston Scott (Eagles): Scott was a rotational back under Staley in Philadelphia. He also can return kicks: His 27.1-yard average last year would have ranked in the top five in the NFL if he’d had enough returns to qualify.


Also mentioned as possible signings:

QB Jacoby Brissett (Browns)
QB Andy Dalton (Saints)
Edge Leonard Floyd (Rams)
LB Bobby Wagner (Rams)
S Nick Scott (Rams)

We don't have the cap room for big splash names, not to mention a ton of holes with fewer and fewer draft picks.  Mid-level guys are where we are at this FA.

Do we not have about $10m from Moore and another $??? from Shaq--so it could be about $35-40?  I do not get into this stuff, but if we spend a lot on a potential #1 WR, I dunno.
