Oh my.. Florida would never touch this.

People need to realize that the fact that Carters contract has 10 years left is gonna hurt his value. It will look good now, but who knows what will happen in two, three or five years? That contract is dangerous!

That risk lowers trade value far more than a bargain contract for a player of Carter's caliber.
We know that most proposal fail, so we chose to not propose something retarded and look like douchbags.

"Fair" value, if two of three would work out well, then the Panthers would be ****ed so hard. Don't you get that a 10 year contract hurts a players value, because it involves a big risk. Maybe the player get's hurt or is over the top.

Florida in a rebuilding would never give up three massive assets for 10 years of Carter (which is a very risky move). Carter isn't worth it when he got a contract like that. No GM in their right mind would trade one of this assets+ for Carter because it ruins the rebuild! And I'm gonna say it again: Carters contract is dangerous and will ruin a lot of his value in a trade.
