Assuming Darnold proves to be extension worthy, I’m not sure he’ll break the bank. While he will get paid, it’s unlikely he’ll warrant a huff deal by the time we are extending him and even if he’s coming off of a monster season, I would imagine he would prefer to stick around in Carolina after we revived his career, especially after experiencing the NYJ and how important it is to find the right fit.
DJ will be paid elite money. Burns will be paid elite money. Reddick will be paid close to elite but similar to my hopes for Darnold, he may take a little less to stick here with Rhule and Snow who he obviously loved playing for.
We are one of the most cap abundant teams. I think we will manage to work this all out.
Very good point.
Having a talented secondary helps our defense so much. Just the coverage we were able to do against the Saints allowed for our front to feast and the whole defense to crank out their fury.
Jaycee shutting down his part of the field is critical to their success.
