When is free agency going to start? <--- big question for QB needy teams.
Well, no one clearly knows. BUT, I'd bet that a veteran QB is going to be far more ready than C Newton whenever football does start.
I agree that Carolina needs something to stimulate their fan base, etc., but I would just go about it differently. I just think that gambling on Newton can really set back their franchise even further. I suppose it's short term vs. long term perspective. Maybe Carolina is worried that they can't fill any stadium seats without Newton . . . . I understand from the financial perspective. But if Newton bombs, it's going to get even uglier.
Sounds like Denver is shopping their pick too.
To Houston, who I think would take Von Miller.
I think Denver might be trying to sell the draft for next year's Andrew Luck sweepstakes.
If he bombs, he bombs. But if not, he can really change the face of the NFC South.
That is FOR SURE
Carolina has a strong fan base....they were 6th in the entire league in attendace last season.
Furthermore, just bringing in a new coaching staff after all of these years has lit a fire under those fans.
They were one demensional with no pasing game last year due to throwing Clausen out there to the wolves. They need receiving help badly and it would help if they had a good veteran QB so they can maybe take some time too grrom the young guys and see for sure if they wasted picks on Clausen and Pike last year.
I'd take AJ Green or Dareus. I'm sure they'd love to trade down a few slots and maybe even take Julio Jones or Gabbert.
Word is they havent had any calls for the pick
