Just heard the same on Redskin radio. D.J lands deal with the Panthers.

I'm semi surprised if this was the guy the Skins wanted they didn't land him. But, I don't know what the contract details where that the Skins offered?

However, it seems to be a reasonable offer for D.J., and IF he stays healthy it's a really good deal for the Panthers.

If this turns out to be accurate, the folks in Seattle & Zorn must not be very impressed, even though he put up some good numbers when healthy. Or there's a lot more to the recurring ankle injury.

Good he would have been a injury risk anyway & that's more money in our pockets

Re: Report: Hackett Agrees to Terms with Panthers

I may be in the minority but I am very happy Hackett will not be getting paid by the Skins next year. His injuries are too much of a concern, imo. Still, the panthers definitely got him for a good price.

Re: Report: Hackett Agrees to Terms with Panthers

3.5 mil for 2 years?
hmmm...I thought we'd offer him at least 2.
Oh well...looks like one of the below needs will not be addressed in the first 4 picks
DE, DT, OL, CB.

ouch.

The Panthers got a steal in my opinion.

Re: Report: Hackett Agrees to Terms with Panthers

I would think JZ is on the inside track with this guy? I would prefer them to be to conservative rather than pissin' away more B Lloyd deals

This aint no Lloyd player...nor was it close to Lloyd money.
We may be kicking ourselves with this one....hard to know.
But we may get lucky paying a rookie this much and hoping our existing lines can hold up another year.

I dont see any other possible FA WR that can help us....

I guess we have 2 options now....use a draft pick, or trade a draft pick for a WR....in either case, we are down a draft pick

Re: Report: Hackett Agrees to Terms with Panthers

When I was listening to Redskins Radio at 1200, it seemed as if the injuries were not a concern for us. In fact the phrase used was something like " Zorn and the Redskins didn't even work Hackett out because they were not worried about injuries and they already knew what they would be getting". That is not the actual quote I am paraphrasing what Larry Michael said on the show.

For the sake of draft picks...I am now officially on the resign caldwell bandwagon.
I dont want to waste a top pick on a WR

Re: Report: Hackett Agrees to Terms with Panthers

According to Hacketts agent and ESPN, he chose Carolina over Seattle, Washington and Tampa Bay and that Hackett recieved only a "minimum salary offer from the Redskins."

ESPN - Panthers agree to two-year deal with WR Hackett - NFL

There were a couple of people that were under the impression that the Skins were worried about him being injury prone when actually they were not.

I'm not sure what promises other teams made to him, but I believe the Redskins made it pretty clear to him he wasn't going to be brought in here to be the main guy. Not even necessarily #2 either.

I'm sure that is a factor...they couldn't say he'd be #2 because they'd have to pay him more than Randel El...who makes like 4 mil a year.

He was probably looking for a #2 opportunity.
I think he has that in Carolina...with Muhammed being 35 and all.

But that kind of money is pretty cheap...offering even less than 1.75/yr....he may have been insulted and said BUH-BYE.

Its not like the Skins didn't have the cap room to make a decent offer.
Same with Tampa....something must be wrong with him other than injury that the Skins and Tampa and Seattle didn't like. I am truly suprised at the low ball offer considering he was our only FA target....I'd think most here who wanted him would have been elated at a 2 mil/yr deal
