Slideshow: Byron Bell will be a free agent next year
This is a list and my take on the 2015 Carolina Panthers free agents. We know the Panthers always say the answer is on the roster so here are the free agents they have to decide on resigning or not in 2015. Keep in mind the Panthers would much rather resign their free agents than go after ones from other teams in most cases. The information on free agents on the 2015 Carolina Panthers comes from Spotrac.com.
2015 Carolina Panthers Free Agents
Greg Hardy was suspended for 15 games in 2014 and really hurt the Carolina Panthers. He is by far the most talented free agent the Panthers have but I don’t see the Carolina Panthers trying to resign Greg Hardy.
A big flop at both offensive tackles Bell will probably be resigned by the team. I have no problem with Byron Bell resigning with the Panthers as a backup. But if the Panthers trot Bell out as a starter again next year I will pull out my hair.
Edwards has been pretty solid for the Carolina Panthers but he is getting up there in years.
Cole is even older than Dwan Edwards and it may be time to put him out to pasture.
Blackburn is ok but he gets injured a lot and I think his starting days are behind him. Bring him back on the cheap as a backup and special teams guy.
Webb was a fan favorite in the preseason as a backup quarterback. I do like the fact that Webb can play wide receiver or quarterback and if the price is right I would like the Panthers to bring him back.
Dickson was a flop as the 2nd tight end and I think he needs to be gone.
Cason has been hot and cold but is in Pro Bowl consideration at the time of this writing. That means he will get too expensive for the Panthers to resign.
Jason William is a JAG (Just A Guy) that the Panthers can keep or let go and it won’t matter much.
The backup center hasn’t played enough for me to know much about him.
The Panthers love him but he gets hurt too much for a JAG.
Jacobs is a linebacker who the Panthers should try to develop more if he is cheap.
Fozzy was a preseason fan favorite who got hurt when he could have had lots of playing time early in the season. I would like to see Fozzy resigned by the Panthers.
A JAG offensive lineman.
Was released and brought back, I think he will be gone for good next year.
Bersin may be a training camp casualty if the Panthers bring in new wide receivers but he will be resigned by the Carolina Panthers.
Fourcault had a terrible showing trying to replace Byron Bell in one game. If the Panthers want to keep trying to get something out of him that is fine. Its not his fault he was thrown to the wolves.
A JAG guard but that is the whole offensive line these days.
See Chris Scott
The Panthers thought enough of Blanchard that when he was injured wink, wink they stashed him on IR.
A JAG running back who won’t be resigned.
I don’t know much about Remmers other than he is cheap.
Pressley was recently activated so he may show us what he can do at the end of this season.
A JAG wide receiver.
