My Thoughts on Greg Hardy

So yesterday the Panthers decided to keep The Kraken by tagging him, costing us $13.11 Million towards the 2014 Salary Cap. While I think it was the right move, I dont think it is for the same reason most Panther fans have. There was a growing market for the services of Greg Hardy in Free Agency and there was no way the Panthers let him go for nothing (or a compensatory pick). There is a slim chance this team can be effective when you have ONE player taking just about half of the available salary cap space left, when you have ~19 Free Agents left. While I love Greg Hardy, I think one of the following needs to happen:

1.) Figure out a long term deal that reduces his cap hit and does not cripple us in the future

2.) Trade Greg and get more draft picks

We have a HUGE hole on the offensive line and Rivera is thinking about placing Byron Bell at LT (cringed while typing). I would rather that $13.11 Million be used to sign a LT to protect the most important asset the Panthers have. I like what Gettleman has done so far, I just hope he has something up his sleeve.

KEEP POUNDING
