    Panthers | Gardner Will Cost Sixth-round Draft Choice
    Wed, 27 Jul 2005 16:42:19 -0700

    Pat Yasinskas, of the Charlotte Observer, reports the Carolina Panthers will give up a sixth-round draft choice in 2006 to the Washington Redskins for WR Rod Gardner if Gardner passes a physical with the team Thursday, July 28. Sources also noted the compensation is also conditional on Gardner making the team's roster. The Panthers will be responsible for $2 million base salary for Gardner, who is in the final year of his initial contract.

    He isn't a very good player. A 6th round pick for him is about right.

    Good move to pick up another WR. They have a nice little trio of WRs. Steve Smith could be a big target along with Kerry Colbert and Gardner.

    They were trying to palm him off to us during the Speilman era for a second or third round pick.We ended up getting Booker and that was the end of that.TG.

    Man are you kidding me?

    Gardner is a good reciever, a 6th round pick for him is a straight steal.. Great move for the Panthers

    So you are saying Joe Gibbs doesn't know what he is doing? And the Redskins have been trying to trade a "good" player for 2 years and finally settled on letting this "Good" player go for a stikin 6th round pick??

    a 6th rounder would be good for him, i agree, but they also have to pick up his salary, which he isnt worth

    The Redskins have to make salary cap room and had to move Gardner. Everyone knew it. They held on as long as they could and a sixth round pick is better than nothing.

    I agree.

    I live near Baltimore, Redskins aren't a bad team to watch if Miami isn't on the Ticket at the same time, even though they never live up to their expectations. I see many games and can say without a homer perspective or bias, Gardner is worth more than a damn 6th rounder. Sometimes it isn't always about the team, y aknow, players can just say they dont want to play their anymore. And WRs are a dime a dozen and can be found in the rough, that's why teams don't give up high draft choices.

    ...in fact, not many teams give up high picks anymore period unless they are getting a superstar or #1 pick.

    Didn't the Redskins give Mark Brunell a ridiculously large contract and make him their starter? I don't know how much Joe Gibbs was involved with that, but it hasn't looked like the Redskins know what they're doing for a while now.

    Joe Gibbs was the #1 guy that went for that. He wanted a "veteran" QB.

    To think the Redskins took him in the first round of the draft. Gibbs I think admitted that the game changed more than he thought during his time away...and his old playbook didn't quite cut it like he thought it would

    Gardner usually makes for a good third receiver for FF. That is ... when your other receivers are injured.
