I have to agree, how do you let a 15 sack DE walk in his prime?
Panthers Preparing to Use Franchise Tag on Hardy - Bill Voth
A league source said the team is preparing to use its franchise tag on defensive end Greg Hardy. The fourth-year player tied a team single-season record with 15 sacks in 2013. He would be one of the league’s most sought-after free agents if Carolina lets him hit the open market. The deadline for teams to tag one of their players is Monday at 4 p.m. ET.
Let's hope that cap number is closer to $29M in order to not limit what we can do in free agency. I assume Gettleman is putting the final touches on his various options and offers with that ace of tag up his sleeve. He has until Tuesday to make his mind up but it sounds like we will hear something before this weekend is over.
So do you think Hardy deserves the franchise tag or should they let him test free agency?
