    well DT Shaun Rogers was delt to the Cleveland Browns for a 3rd round pick in the draft and for former Browns starting CB Leigh Bodden… also the Raiders have signed former Giants Safety Gibril Wilson to a six-year, $39 million contract… more players gone from the alrdy dwindling FA’s out there.

  • onemanrecords

    i really don’t understand why we didn’t go after crumpler…i mean obviously our TE’s aren’t cutting it…king looks to be an ok come up but we’ll have to see about that

  • Walker

    I’m glad we didn’t sign Alge. We don’t need him.

  • Justin

    only person i want is Michael Turner

  • kfields

    we really didnt need alge i mean he could help but with Rasario who showed some promise with his hands and Jeff King who is showing he can be somebody in the future and also we have Fauria who is a solid vetern so teach these youngsters…. yes Alge could of helped but locking up a solid #2 reciever would do a lot more how about Bernard Berrian, David Givens, Donte Stallworth, Justin McCariens and even possibly Javon Walker if he can pass a pshycial and show promise thats wat i feel is important and like ive been saying grabbing a nice OT would help a lot that way we can grab a RB in the draft…  RB’s always have a chance of having outstanding rookie seasons.

  • Mike Houston

    kfields, I agree with your points, especially the one regarding an OT( on the left). Now regarding the #2 receiver, the Panthers feel Moose is it right now, and they’ll probably try to get a young one in the draft( Mario Manningham would be perfect). And knowing the Panthers, they’ll trade down in the draft for a lower pick to pay less. They lucked up last year with Beason, but they better stop that shit

  • kfields

    we cant take another rookie WR we alrdy have robinson and Jarret is basically a rookie still we need a solid #2 who is young.
