Probably like most of you, I believed that the only remaining FA's were marginal talents, until I reviewed a 6 week old article at ProFootballFocus.com. Surprisingly, I found 4 very highly rated players at positions of need for the Panthers, and here they are.
PFF Grade - Position - Name - Height - Weight - Age - 2012 Team
+21.3 - RG - Brandon Moore - 6'3" - 305 - 33 - Jets - allowed no QB sacks or knockdowns in 2011
If the Panthers could sign both Winston and Moore for the right side of their O-Line, I believe it would push the Panthers into the playoffs this year. Winston is young enough to play well for the next 3 years, while Moore would be a great 1 year stop gap, to help train rookie RG Edmund Kugbila. Rhodes is a much better S option than Woodson, because he will only turn 31 in September, and is still playing at a very high level. Winston and Moore should be the top 2 targets, with Rhodes 3rd, and I only included Smith in case Beason or Davis injury problems pop back up, but what do you think?
