Holmes is now a Jet....

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 … -the-jets/

Not panther related just big news in the football world. Both their receivers to start the year will be suspended it looks like. Jets this year are really stacking up for a run; bringing in aging vets, and both their receivers are only signed until the end of 2010.

Re: Holmes is now a Jet....

It just burns me up how the Panthers are sitting on the A$$ while the other teams are getting better at WR.  Is it possible to get Brandon Marshall for our 2011 1st round draft picks?

Pretty much seems like a steal for a 5th round pick, Holmes must've really disappointed Steelers ownership.

Why pay for an over-ripe apple from the street vender, when you can pluck a fresh one from the tree? I think that's our philosophy on the WR position. (On all positions right now, for that matter.) Seriously, though, the only way I see us going after a veteran receiver would be if we traded our 2nd rounder to Denver for Marshall on draft day. (Don't laugh about the 2nd round compensation, that could seriously happen.) We won't trade out of the first round again. We've done good in those trades, but it won't happen three years in a row unless there's just someone we can't live without, and right now, there's no one that fits that bill, not even Marshall.

I know baggage is baggage...but just for the sace of the conversation and for Sh!*'s -n- giggles...Were it not for his personal baggage and if i were the Panthers GM I would once again trade the 2011 first round pick for B Marshal in one-single heartbeat...than I would have Marshall, 89 and 3 out throwing pass routes by 8:am tomorrow morning!!!!! (Marshal is a proven vet and does not bring with him the 3 yr rookie WR learning curve or the gag-gone totall blunders the team has had in drafting WR in most resent histroy---if not for the baggage I would go with the sure thing as a player that BM is)

I understood the moves we made, releasing older players but I don't understand sitting back and not getting Holmes or Bryant. I do not want to see Smith alone for six years. And Marshall is worth a 2011 first round pick, he been in the league for three years and each year he had over 100 receptions. 2 out of the 3 he went to the probowl and this last year he did it without Shanahan and Cutler, he also have the record for most catches in a game. And he's only 26.
