Where's the basis for the too many leeches argument if I could ask? That gets thrown around plenty when the idea of somebody returning to their hometown gets brought up, especially if they have a cloudy past. Just want to know to what degree he should be trying to avoid home.
Clearly this offense doesn't need guarantees, it just needs bodies. Hakeem Nicks, somehow, has two seasons over 1,000 yards receiving. You wouldn't take a flier on that with the idea that they'd be using him PLENTY more than Indy is right now when you look at what they throw out on the field right now? Come on.
The Cowboys will either work it out or franchise him so I don't even know why I'm asking, but would the Panthers be a player for Dez Bryant? Newton is clearly just a product of his environment at the current moment and has the arm/legs to work his way into the Top-5 QB in the league category some day. When you suddenly throw him into the mix Cam-Kelvin-Dez changes the Panthers passing game from hideous to one of the best 1-2 punches in the league.
They have to fix that offensive line of course, ideally the first round of next May's draft.
