    Wanted the texans to look at him earlier in free agency so this is not a mock splash gif.

    Really scraping the barrel.

    PFF:
    "Matt Kalil’s $55 million deal is shaping up to be an all-time bad signing. He earned a 63.1 overall grade in 2017 before missing all of 2018 with yet another injury. It will cost them more to cut the soon to be 30-year old tackle than to roster him in 2019, but either way, you likely don’t want him starting."

    PFF Most Improved OLs
    "The move to cut Matt Kalil itself might have been enough for Carolina to make this list, but when you pair it with signing center Matt Paradis and re-upping right tackle Daryl Williams, Cam Newton can rest easy. Paradis was a top-three-graded center before he went on IR last year and has been consistently one of the best centers in the NFL ever since the Broncos won the Super Bowl. To get him for under $10 million a year was a steal, and he’ll be a significant upgrade from the now retired Ryan Kalil. Williams’ injury woes look a bit more serious, but he was a top-five-graded right tackle his last full season of 2017."

    Panthers released OT Matt Kalil.
    It's a post-June 1 designation, which creates $7.25 million in cap space. It was a necessary, expected move after Kalil missed 2018 with an unexplained knee issue. The injury washout came on the heels of a truly dreadful 2017 where Kalil's play regressed even further, and he was one of the worst tackles in the league. Kalil's 2017 signing was an abject disaster for ex-GM Dave Gettleman. The Panthers will be moving forward with Taylor Moton and Daryl Williams at tackle. Four months shy of his 30th birthday, Kalil is in danger of washing out of the league

    They like Davenport more than any tackle in free agency and were not willing to give Penn the starting job. While I agree that Penn shouldnt just outright been given the position, they shouldve given him the opportunity to compete with Davenport for the job. Signing Kalil is a sure fire sign they are looking at tackle early in the draft, we already knew this. I for one will be shocked if Kalil is on the roster week 1. He is not good and coming off an injury.

    Travis Johnson was on sr610 and he's buds with Penn. He said Penn wants it to happen.
