Sprung the key block for Stewart to set the tone in the divisional playoff game in January 2016. The Panthers took a calculated risk by not placing a 1st Round tender and instead used a 2nd Round tender. But for a team with a pick late in the round looking for a sure thing, you couldn't ask for more out of a player or teammate. Given the crazy OG salaries this offseason it's unlikely the Panthers would match a competitive offer for a 2nd Round tender given that OG Trai Turner is looking for a new deal next year as well. Could help the Hawks tremendously and certainly hurt the Panthers, the 2nd Rounder being the wildcard on both sides I'd say. Thoughts?
Hope we give a good offer but it shouldn't be anywhere near what we offered Lang. We could make an offer just to screw you guys and make you up your RFA offer. That makes my black heart warm for some reason.
He's younger than Lang. If it's not that much then you may actually be doing us a huge favor. He's a guy any team would love to have long term.
I don't know anything about him but if he's breathing we should try. I have no idea what your cap situation is. I have a good idea what the Seahawks is. And Lang was a huge play for us. The FO knows we have to upgrade the OL because it's not even giving Wilson a fair chance to be Wilson let alone actually run the ball and control TOP and the game. Wilson isn't a 60/40 pass/run quarterback. Seattle has to stop the insanity and get average tackles that have a clue. It's okay if we go 55/45 pass/run though. Wilson is good enough for that even injured.
I understand. As a player Norwell is equal to or greater than Lang. The Panthers cap is comfortable but currently ever so slightly below the league average if one is solely looking at 2017 in a bubble, although multiple cuts to players like Stewart, Anderson, Dickson, or Gano could free up more space. A decision (to let go) may have to be made next year regarding Norwell, Turner, Lotulelei, or Short however. A competitive offer with a 2nd Round pick in play would at the very least make things extremely interesting. Could be a win/win, or a win/loss for one side or the other, depending on the terms. On the field having him is better than not however, no doubt about that.
