we already know that Teddy sucks. at least Darnold is 5 years younger than him and has a higher upside.

also my guess is that we'll keep teddy around for at least another season, but i could be totally wrong about that

Yeah it's not exactly egregious but it's a bit much for just taking a flier on someone nobody else would seem to want

I think it's a bit strong to say nobody else would want Darnold. If nobody else wanted him, the Panthers could have gotten him for peanuts.

I also wouldn't be surprised to see Teddy stay with the Panthers this year. Darnold is incredibly cheap this year. There's 0 chance they're both on the roster next year though, as Darnold's 5th year option is big.

Put it this way. I think there are plenty of teams that would take darnold as a backup and hope for more, virtually none that would take him as a starter.

This deal is actually pretty good if he's a replacement level starter but too much for your backup. So the deal seems to be this weird middle ground where it's only good if Darnold shows something he hasn't yet and most people would say he's more likely to not improve.

Ian Rapoport said the Panthers were the only team actively trying to trade for him.

Also Panthers Twitter seems to believe Teddy won’t be on the team next year

I mean if the Panthers don't think bridgewater can start, there's no reason for him to be on the roster. But it's not because they can't afford both him and Darnold this year because Darnold is cheap as hell this season.

^Yeah I think that is one point in favor of this trade is it is good from a cap standpoint. Try to grab a late round pick for Teddy and then just bring in some veteren camp arms and maybe a late round stretch pick like a Newman or Costello and just see what happens maybe like what the Seahawks had when Russ came into the league.

^^ no need to bring in a veteran backup when PJ Walker is still on the roster

his one start was the perfect example of why Teddy wasn’t it

I'm actually really happy with this trade. Improvement to lengthen the field, we've got a great receiving corps so might as well air it out. Not giving up anything huge. the only thing I don't like is the amount of money we've got in qbs now (Darnold and Teddy add up to like 41 mil IIRC).

I've heard a quote from Fitterer that makes it sound like we *really* wanna trade Teddy away. The most logical situation would be sending him to Green Bay/Vikings/Broncos, one of the teams with no clear answer at qb for the future, but we'll see. I'll be surprised if we can get much for him, we don't really have much leverage.

I agree with Justin though about Pitts. 8 is a good range to grab him, most people think at least 3-4 qbs are coming off the board in the first 5-7 picks, so that frees things up for us. If not him, I'd go for either Patrick Surtain or Shaun Wade, then grab an OT/OG in the second. Maybe some guy like Dillon Radunz or Alex Leatherwood.

Aaron Rogers is a last year goodbye tour deal, Jordan Love is not a known quantity

They may want Love to be their future but they've got no clue. Teddy's contract ends in 2022 which gives them another year to figure Love out.

DJ Moore and Robby Anderson is a fine WR group. Not great.

That's fair but what they definitely are is speedy, which is good for getting deep

this would obviously be the most hilarious landing spot for Bridgewater

I mean you're like $14 million off, but close enough. Teddy has a 22.9 million cap hit and darnold is like 4.7 million.

But yeah obviously they'd like to trade him because they view Darnold as the starter and trading him frees up $17.9 million in cap space (if the trade is post-june 1) I just don't know if they'll get any kind of return they want for him. The only thing for sure is he's not getting cut this season.

Same, now all we really need to go after in the draft is TE and OL (and 'need' is a strong word for both since they're both ~decent~ but not great). Leaves us in a great position to be flexible with picks. I wouldn't be surprised if we end up trading down once or twice to try and get back some of the picks given up for Darnold

had a dream last night that I got emotional over Pitts falling to 8 and us drafting him

confirming that I was wrong about being skeptical over taking a TE so high
