He got literally triple the guaranteed money than the Steelers offered him. He also got more per year. The only way the Steelers offer was better was if he played all 5 years of the deal, which for a running back isnt a sure thing at all.
Yeah he obviously would've made more if he played last year and got his 14 million on top if it, but he could've gotten hurt too. Its hard to say this didn't work out for him.
In the meantime, Le'Veon absolutely torched us with Pittsburgh so I don't love playing him twice a year.
Yeah, I know. It's just frustrating to watch the team implode like they did last year and seemingly not having much being done about it.
Funchess is gone, he's a good player, but yeah probably not worth what the Colts gave him.
Thomas Davis is gone, I'm thinking mostly due to the domestic violence suspension he had and less to do with his production. Panthers have always been big on their players' personal conduct since Rae Carruth. And Marty Hurney has never been sentimental, letting the likes of Steve Smith walk and end their careers in other uniforms (which I still maintain should be fixed, they should sign Smitty to a 1-day deal so he can officially retire a Panther).
We had a pretty depleted secondary and we let almost all of the veterans there go.
Greg Olsen says he will be back, but he's getting some pretty serious offers from networks for him to go call games. With the injuries he's had the last couple of seasons, those are going to start looking better and better.
Cam Newton has also had his shoulder fixed again and he says he's better and will be ready to go, but he said he was fine last offseason too.
