Linebackers James Anderson and Thomas Davis, defensive end Charles Johnson and running back DeAngelo Williams all decided to stay in Carolina, and the Panthers also gave linebacker Jon Beason a five-year contract extension. Somehow, they also found a way to trade for tight end Greg Olsen and sign kicker Olindo Mare, defensive tackle Ron Edwards and safety Sean Considine.
He's not even counting Kenny "Bring the' Payne at SS...lol. Seriously the Olsen trade has to be what got us over the top. Plus I like the fact that though the Panthers had the inside track on their own players they still did what it took to keep them from looking around seriously.
Of course Clayon liked the Eagles moves the best and then the Cardinals once they landed Kevin Kolb. Though I think the Cards took on too many cast offs like Richard Marshall and Jeff King. He also gave props to the Jags.
We will look at Clayton's losers ...after the jump...

For all their cap space the Bucs did zilch; well they signed a punter. Ha Ha Ha!!!
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs opened free agency with $52 million of room, but all they have done is re-sign offensive linemen Davin Joseph and Jeremy Trueblood. Their only free-agent addition is punter Michael Koenen.
They're going to need him! The 49ers are taking some flack too:
San Francisco 49ers
The team went backward in the first six days. They needed to re-sign offensive lineman David Baas to replace Eric Heitmann at center, but they lost Baas to the Giants. Linebacker Takeo Spikes left for the Chargers. They cut cornerback Nate Clements and failed to talk him into re-signing.
