Stinking Panthers Trade For No. 1 Overall Pick

March 10th, 2023

Carolina owner David Tepper.

It looks like David Tepper is finally going to get his man.

The owner of the Stinking Panthers has been trying to find a franchise quarterback since he bought the team. Joe is willing to assume he has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on failed coaches and failed quarterbacks and struck out each time.

Today, he damn near gave away a chunk of his franchise to the Bears for next month’s No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

So in a matter of days, Bucs competing quarterback Kyle Trask went from the possible top quarterback in the NFC South to the No. 3, pending what the Dixie Chicks do. Fun while it lasted.

Sending two first round picks to Baltimore for Lamar Jackson sure seems like a bargain now. Whoever the Stinking Panthers select at No. 1, who knows if he will be any good? Jackson is proven.

    Back to Buccaneer Cove we go

  2. Aaron Says:

    About to have the 3rd best Qb in the division…if we’re lucky

  3. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    If Jackson is so super awesome and a can’t miss championship quarterback, why would the Ravens trade him?

  4. Mike Johnson Says:

    Laugh all you want. Carolina got there eye on a QB with the 1st pick. Go after Jackson Licht. Make it happen if you want to remain in contention.

  5. Rod Munch Says:

    They’re taking AR15 at #1, think he’s the next Cam Newton.

  6. Citruscountybuc Says:

    You fellas are so negative. This could destroy the panthers for years to come if it doesn’t work out and A LOT of times it doesn’t!!!

  7. Marine Buc Says:

    I hope they select AR-15 with the #1 overall pick…

    That would be hilarious!!

  8. Parrishbucsfan Says:

    Oh No we suck again !!!

  9. RSJCheapSeats Says:

    F*ck. F*ck.

    That is all.

  10. Joe Says:

  11. Pewter Power Says:

    Kyle Trask went from the possible top quarterback in the NFC South to No. 3?

    Love the joes but that is the most insane thing I’ve heard in a while. How was he better than Atlanta’s quarterback who actually has starts? We’ll be back to having the worst quarterback in the division unless he lights it up somehow but we don’t know.

  12. Marine Buc Says:

    I actually like what the Bucs are doing this off season…

    Shed a bunch of old over priced players and dead cap space.

    “Reload” through the draft and cheap left-over free agents then head into 2024 with a top three draft pick position and more healthy salary cap situation.

    The Panthers and Saints will be mediocre for the next 3-4 years.

    Big whoopie.

  13. Goforthebucs30 Says:

    Good for them, great move. They understand that receivers aren’t near as important as a franchise quarterback and was ok with giving up DJ Moore. Bryce Young is a great kid, great leader, great thrower, and is going to be a star. Rtards worried about size apparently don’t realize he got by 300 pound lineman in the SEC. Anyway, all good. We have Kyle Trask!!!! Derrrrrrrr

  14. WillieG Says:

    They could draft the next Jameis Winston.

  15. Pewter941 Says:

    AR15 to Tampa

  16. RSJCheapSeats Says:

    “They could draft the next Jameis Winston.”

    Or the next Joe Burrow. More likely the next Joe Burrow.

  17. Miller5252 Says:

    Besides the Browns, no team is going to sell their souls for Lamar. The Bucs got their Super Bowl, so now comes the years of living off that 1 win. By the end of the year the Brady effect will be over and depending on how bad it is, the majority of the front office, coaches and players will be gone. The Panthers might be hurting for years to come, but at least the owner is showing the fans that he’s willing to do any and everything to make his franchise relevant! The Bucs did it for a few years but that went out the window quick.

    Wait? When was Trask ever the top QB, and who is he ahead of?

  19. Pewter941 Says:

    I meant Ar15 to Carolina, he’s a faster Cam.

    So they’re going to be a top 5 offense for the next-half decade? That would suck.

  21. Beej Says:

    I went back to 2010 a month or so ago, 60% of first round QB’s don’t work out

  22. Pete O'Connor Says:

    Wouldn’t it be great if Trask turned out to be a fantastic QB? Give the kid a chance!

  23. optimisticbucfan Says:

    Bryce Young…is the pick

  24. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Hedge Funder goes all in…he was getting twitchy. He’s made a lot of early blunders…jury is still out if he’s the next Snyder and/or Haslem.

    As a devout Trask Force FanBoy…I still believe he is the best QB in the NFC South if not entire NFC! Do not even think about questioning this fact.

  25. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Da Bears got a haul for that pick, glad that DJ Moore is out of the division! I have several friends from the Charlotte area, I reminded them that Baker Mayfield was also the number one pick. 😂

  26. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Even on Freaky Friday Hot Rod pulls Winny outta the glue factory! This is an outstanding way to kick off the weekend!

  27. Costa Rica John Says:

    Until we see Trask play no one knows how good or bad he will be. He does have a good track record of sitting behind QB’s and learning then when he takes the field he produces.
    I’m going to support him and hope he makes everyone choke on all the sh** they have talked about him.
    GO BUCS!

  28. Rod Munch Says:

    On a different note the Dolphins finally picked up Tua’s 5th year option, so that means they for got the word direct from Brady that he isn’t coming back. So everyone can put that fake news to rest.

    Check your sheets Munch, you had another JayMiss wet dream.

  30. Anonymous Says:

    joe should do his research on how common it is that the #1 pick is traditionally a bad pick when it comes to qb’s. burrow and lawrence are outliers majority of the time the first round qb pick especially the number one pick is usually a bad move.

  31. BA’s Red Pen Says:

    The only thing dumber than drafting Anthony Richardson is that dumb @ss nickname he’s got.

  32. Joe Blow Says:

    We don’t play the game on paper. Everybody needs to chill.

  33. Ds Says:

    Crazy haul for the bears lol and the panthers just gutted their team for so-so Qb prospects lol

  34. Joe Blow Says:

    The kitties are more than a QB away. And who does he throw to? They just traded DJ Moore, no CMC, and ‘Chosen’ is gone. Even if the QB pans out, the rest of the team is lacking and they traded away even more impact picks. They’ll possibly be good, 5 years from now.

  35. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    Gave away their future to draft,,, who? Richardson is a project, Young has size and strength questions, and this line about Stroud by NFL network analyst: “Interceptions arise when he refuses to come off primary receiver” makes him sound like JW part 2. So Joe’s great idea is to throw away the Bucs future for a great talent who is injury prone because of his style of play. Better idea- move back a few spots (and pick up more picks) and draft O’Cyrus Torrence. Use the extra picks to replenish the lost DB’s from free agency, DT, OT. Also, JTS and Hall need to step it up.

  36. Goatfarmer Says:

    Tepper wins the prize for Boob Supreme. Whoever he picks at #1 will be the next Josh Rosen or Jamarcus Russell. And he mortgaged his future to do it. Plus, his new QB will have no one to throw to. What an idjut.

    DJ Moore will make the Bears better, great deal by the Bears.

  37. Oxycondoms Says:

    Should trade evans for draft capital

  38. Tye Says:

    the fact that first round qbs more often than not are a BUST, makes it meh…

  39. Da Bucs Guy Says:

    If you think the failure rate for 1st round QB is high, try looking up second round QB’s failure rate.

  40. Tvan101 Says:

    It would be awesome if Trask balls out and I could stop hearing the Joe’s belly ache about him.

  41. xdptoddx Says:

    Watch them get Richardson… Haha!

  42. Goatfarmer Says:

    Don’t worry, we’ve got Rudy Carpenter Jr at QB, everyone hopes he’s gonna be great.

    I also hope a Brinks truck with $10 million in cash breaks down in my driveway and the driver runs away and leaves the keys in it.

    About as likely.

  43. Reality_Check Says:

    Panthers about to select a franchise QB. The Saints brought in Carr, who while not special, is a decent QB and we’re about to roll with the incapable Kyle Trask. Dark days ahead for our Bucs

  44. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    I see this aa good news. It’s a risky, costly trade Tepper is making. If they don’t nail the QB pick, it’s good. In the next year or two the Bucs should be bad enough to get their own high picks. Lose now, win later.

  45. BA's Red Pen Says:

    Yes Tvan101, that would be cool, it would also be cool if Bill Gates and me switched bank accounts.

  46. R.O. Says:

    Applauding a panic move? Car has no WRs now. They are going to run the ball 45 times a game? Bucs won their SB. Now its patience.

  47. PanthersSuck! Says:

    They will find a way to duck it up.

  48. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Here’s the thing…to get that pick, they just mortgaged any possibility of building around that player for the next 3 years…which means they are not a real threat.

    Do not make this mistake of going after Jackson and making the same mistake.

    Use our 9 picks to rebuild, playTrask, and if he socks, go after the first pick next year.

    But I have a feeling Trask will prove himself. If they fix the lines, improve the run game, keep the defense top 10, then they can ease Trask into the playback during the first half of the season.

    I don’t know how good he’ll be, but none of you do either. He may turn out to be a stud.

  49. Goatfarmer Says:

    I love it when the Panthies wallow in their own stank. They had a very good defense under Wilkes, who also got them playing hard, and they were “this close” to sweeping Bloweszo’s Yucs and taking the division. So they fire hi. For Reich and now they trade the farm for an unproven rookie who more than likely is the next Josh Rosen, or at best, Kyler Murray.

    No one is happy where we are, but I’m glad I’m not a Carolina fan.

  50. Rand Says:

    How does that make him no. 3 ?

    What a load of BS

  51. FairMinded Says:

    I’d love to see Lamar Jackson here. He’s phenomenal! The stupid Ravens should have locked him up. Since they haven’t, we should make a play for him. His salary is going to be giant. Maybe that’s why all the house cleaning? In Licht I trust!

  52. sasquatch Says:

    They’ve hired some good coaches and now they have the #1 pick. Doesn’t mean anything.

  53. Kgh4life Says:

    Makes no sense to trade Evans.

  54. Kgh4life Says:

    Panthers should’ve traded for Lamar: proven commodity and less compensation.

  55. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Great Move By The Bears!


  56. Snookman9 Says:

    Saints got carr with no cap room to improve.
    Panthers just mortgage near term future

    Tampa needs to work on developing a good young team. Let these other jokers sell out for mediocrity, we sold out for rings

  57. MadMax Says:

    @Marine, my thoughts exactly LOL…

    but whatever, theyre in the doldrums too and just cemented themselves further more into it…

  58. MadMax Says:

    Yeah LUV, cant blame them, theyre rebuilding too…and watch, they will snag Anton Harrison or Paris.

  59. Defense Rules Says:

    Bonzai … ‘Here’s the thing…to get that pick, they just mortgaged any possibility of building around that player for the next 3 years…which means they are not a real threat.’

    That’s exactly what Jacksonville did when they drafted Trevor Lawrence. Jags went 3-14 in 2021 with him in his rookie year, then improved this past season to 9-8, BUT … they had to win 5 in a row at the end of the season to get there. And now their salary CAP situation isn’t much better than ours (they rank #30 with MINUS $17.9 mil currently) and that’s with Lawrence still on his initial contract.

    Panthers aren’t a real threat because they don’t have a strong team to support their (???) upcoming rookie QB. And since they gave away several top picks in 2023, 2024 & 2025 it’s gonna be hard to restock the pantry.

  60. BucsFan81 Says:

    Let’s hope the Bucs organization has a better lan so that way we are only in the basement for a few years and not another 10-20 years.

  61. MadMax Says:

    @Goat ….o im lmao too…love love love it

  62. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    So your big fan of Anton Harrison eh?

  63. Hopalong Bucco Says:

    While he hasn’t had any starting ops in NFL, I think Trask will prove to be damn good.

  64. WillieG Says:

    Rod Munch, you can keep those BS stats. Who cares if a QB throws for 5,000 yards each season if he loses 5-6 games because of his “generosity”.

  65. Nicholas Carlson Says:

    Get Lamar!

  66. SB~LV Says:

    That is OWNERSHIP!

  67. MadMax Says:

    @LUV If we go there, oh yeah, LT position is wide open, but he wont be there for us…..he gone by the time we trade down and land TE Washington…

  68. Defense Rules Says:

    Marine Buc … “Reload” through the draft and cheap left-over free agents then head into 2024 with a top three draft pick position and more healthy salary cap situation’.

    I was with you right up until the ‘top 3 draft pick position’. Took a 4-13 record in 2022 to ‘win’ the #3 pick. We MIGHT do that poorly, but IF we play our hand right, we MIGHT do as well as about 10-7 (we play 10 teams this season who had losing records in 2022, so you never know how those will turn out).

    It all depends IMO on how well we can restock … especially the defensive cupboard … given our messy salary CAP situation. After Vea’s restructure, we’re sitting at MINUS $38.8 mil, but we’re still showing several players on our roster (Fournette, Succop, Brate) who IF released will save us $9.3 mil more. After that it’ll take 3 or 4 restructures, but we can get under the CAP by March 17th & be able to breathe a little easier.

  69. HC Grover Says:

    Young from Alabama.

  70. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    As a Buccaneers fan, it’s tough to admit that the Kitties are on the rise. With CJ Stroud likely to be their next quarterback, and a talented young defense already in place, they’re going to be a tough team to beat.

  71. Chris Cotten Says:

    Tepper is an idiot, they will draft Stroud or Young, and both will be a shitshow

  72. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    I totally disagree they gave their franchise and a 2nd Rounder and a first rounder next year along with DJ who makes Mike Evans or CG money to get a franchise QB is a no brainer. Just sucks that the entire conference has gotten significantly better and we are in cap hell and have TaTaTrask?? Wow this is going to be a looooooooooong 4 or 5 years.. Maybe JL takes some knowledge and trades one of our 19 million dollar WR or both .. CG is solid, but he’s a risk because of injuries and Mike is thirty

  73. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    First pick 9^^^ for a franchise QB

  74. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Washington’s – solid but it will still be too many good prospects on the board bruh

  75. D-Rok Says:

    While pointing towards OBP, I have 2 compasses. 1 is pointing towards magnetic North, while the other in my other hand points to South. It’s an anomaly. Additionally, my dosimeter is pegging max and my EF meter is in the 10,000 range.

    Conclusion? There are aliens at OBP right now.

    Maybe it’s a gallium deposit. More research needed.


  76. D-Rok Says:

    ^^^^I hope there are some scientists on this board to LOL with me.

  77. BUC IT Says:

    If you pay Lamar Jackson his massive contract that the Ravens decide not to match…. Then you have to give them your next 2 first round picks!! That would be idiotic and that’s why nobody is interested in trading for him. If he was Patrick Mahomes or a young Brady then sure. Outside of that it would be suicidal for the buccaneers to do that. So stop the nonsense.

  78. Irishmist Says:

    Drama queen going to Queens!

  79. Joe Blow Says:

    All you complainers are free to leave the ship. 5 years ago any of us would have traded where we are now just to get in the playoffs! A SB and two division titles in three years? I’ll take a down year in trade for that!

  80. Jerry Says:

    I dont think the Bucs will get the #1 pick in 2024. Bowles defense alone is going to keep us competitive in games. Win 6 games and may not even be in the top 10.

    Bowles is fighting to keep his job. You actually think he’s going to lay down and not try to win games?

  81. mark2001 Says:

    So let me paint this picture for you. Saints have Carr we face twice next year…Carolina, that had a decent team but for QB now had the best QB in the draft. We play twice. Chicago who we play, has a boatload of high draft picks. And GB gets Love to start, who they believe in, and some picks. Detroit and Minnesota are probably better than we are. And we are hoping a new QB can play and O coordinator can call plays. Looks kind of an uphill climb.

  82. Adam's Angry Says:

    We have gone from Super Bowl contender to “hope” …. again.

    And “hope” isn’t a strategy for success.

  83. Duane Says:

    Anxious and exciting times ahead. Just getting to the 15th is going to be interesting. A #1 pick is so radioactive. Glad to see Carolina bet the farm on it. If they had just promoted the right interim coach, they could have saved a fortune. A good case study in how a team can fail miserably at tanking.

  84. stpetebucfan Says:

    Jackson is a major talent but he lacks the most critical of all abilities.

    AVAILability. He’s a walking injury…or technically I should say a running injury.
    Too much of his game is predicated on his legs and he gets blasted too often.

    Why would any team mortgage their future on a talented guy who won’t be available for many Sundays?

  85. Usfbuc Says:

    Hey Bucs are only $5.6 million over the cap now and they can still restructure Evans, Mason, Gage, and Barrett.

  86. Goatfarmer Says:

    D-Rok , I just had to go on a ventilator from hypoxia, due to laughing so hard I couldn’t breathe properly. At least I didn’t spew the beverage.

  87. David Says:

    Wow. Go Bears. They still got a top 10 draft pick plus an extra second round pick plus a number one next year and another receiver for Justin Fields… They just need some O lineman for Fields & they could become relevant real soon.

    As for the Panthers… What quarterback are they going after? The vertically challenged Alabama guy? Stroud? Levis? It just seems like no matter who they get there are a lot of ????’s. There’s no sure thing in this draft.
    I’m sure one or two of them will hit but it’s a gamble.
    Here’s to a bust!

  88. David Says:

    As for Lamar…..

    He is constantly a knee injury away from ending a season or a career.
    In today’s game you need someone who can scramble and run but it’s got to be someone who passes first. Someone who can stand in the pocket and maneuver and pass and secondly create if needed, like Mahomes or Josh Allen.
    Lamar runs first. Their O is designed to run run run, and that opens up passes because of it. He has not shown anything as far as standing there and being able to throw from a pocket yet.

  89. Beej Says:

    Baker Mayfield gets a LOT of passes batted down at the line of scrimmage because he’s only 6′ tall…Young is 5′ 10″. (Does anyone remember Pat Sullivan?)

  90. Defense Rules Says:

    USFBuc … Good catch on the most recent Bucs’ moves. Today they did 4 more restructurings (to go with releasing Donovan earlier in the week) …

    o D Smith: MAR 7, 2023 … Released by Tampa Bay (TB), clearing $9.95M of cap

    o Vea: MAR 10, 2023 … Converted $11.42M of 2023 salary into signing bonus, adding one void year, clearing $9.1M of cap with Tampa Bay (TB).

    o Godwin: MAR 10, 2023 … Converted $18.92M of 2023 salary into signing bonus, adding one void year, clearing $15.136M of cap with Tampa Bay (TB).

    o Davis: MAR 10, 2023 … Converted $13.42M of 2023 salary into signing bonus, adding 3 void years, clearing $10.736M of cap with Tampa Bay (TB).

    o Jensen: MAR 10. 2023 … Converted $11.33M of 2023 salary into signing bonus, adding one void year, clearing $9.068M of cap with Tampa Bay (TB)

    Those 5 transactions cleared $54.0 mil of salary CAP space. Fournette is still shown on the roster, and when he’s released that’ll clear another $3.5 mil. Releasing Brate will clear another $2.0 mil and should put us barely under the 2023 salary CAP. No maneuver room yet, but at least we avoid any penalties.

  91. firethecannons Says:

    desperaate people do desperate things and this qualifies as that. Not a sure thing in this draft. Hendon Hooker is our response and we can get him Trade #19 and move down pick up Hooker in bottom of the 1st round and pick up emmanuel forbes with the second round pick that was just scored it could happen

  92. steele Says:

    If Panthers had stayed put, they would have still had a shot at one of the top QBs. Many mocks already had them landing Will Levis. Moving up smacks of desperation, falling in love with someone higher up. Stroud or Young. I don’t think any of this year’s crop are that immortal. So have at it, Panthers. Go waste your money.

    Hey Bucs are only $5.6 million over the cap now and they can still restructure Evans, Mason, Gage, and Barrett.

    Evans is in the final year. You can’t restructure without an extension, which we don’t
    know he wants.

    Mason already has dead cap in future years and isn’t worth kicking the can further down the road with.

    Gage, maybe. He still could turn out to be a quality player for us.

    Barrett.. Most non-sensical of all. He’s a 30 year old pass rusher coming off a major achilles injury. The chance of him returning to form is low… So you may be looking at a guy who is no longer a quality starter, and you wanna put massive amounts of dead money on the cap in the future for a player who may not even be around? That’s crazy.

    You could cut Mason and Gage to get about 8 million in savings. You could also cut Succop for another 3.75 million.

  94. Canabuc Says:

    Succop needs to go. We will be playing from behind too often to kick field goals next year!

  95. BridleoaksBuc Says:

    Trask showed in college that he could ball….read defenses, accuracy, protected the rock and earned the respect of his team. As a Gator fan, AR15 could run away from trouble, break fingers of receivers 10yards in front of him, overthrow wide open WR’s, and totally dictate to a defense where the play is going…Trask will prove to have the better career.

  96. Goatfarmer Says:

    The best Gator QB ever to play in the NFL is Rex Grossman. Neither Trashk nor Richardson will come close to him, although Richardson with Reich has a chance due to his raw ability.

    Trashk’s upside is Rudy Carpenter.

  97. Roc Says:

    Soo Trask is put behind a draft pick who hasn’t seen one day in The NFL?

    How many 1st busts have there been ????

    Remember we took a 1st pick and HE WAS AWESOME!!!!

  98. IE Buc Says:

    Panthers going for CJ Stroud. Panthers have made some serious moves this off-season. They were a borderline playoff team who might have put themselves over the top with an elite dream team coaching staff and a franchise QB. The Bucs have a better overall team, but they have better overall coaching.

    Wow Joe you really are looking for any excuse to hype Lamar Jackson aren’t you! I heard Tom Brady went out for lunch in Miami and had a Cuban sandwitch I bet that means he’s coming back to Tampa because we have better one’s in Tampa … Geez!

  101. Onetrickpony Says:

    Lamar Jackson wants too much money for an injury prone quarterback he will be lucky if he is still in the league 3-4 years from now

  102. darengibo Says:

    VERY nice haul for the Bears, although I firmly believe they will find a way to bumble it all away as their leadership structure is truly poo poo.

    There would be a LOT of teams bidding on Lamar if not for the silliness of guaranteed money in the two hundred million… so he can than Watson and the Browns for that one… I am all for SOME money guaranteed as it is only fair, but man, his style of play and guaranteeing 250 million??? Talk about a dead cap hit!

  103. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Terrible deal for Panthers. They are reaching.

  104. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Unbelievable haul by the Bears…..if only we had made that kind of trade when we chose Ameerica’s QB….imagine…..

  105. TOMMY MORDUE Says:


  106. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    It is said they are targeting CJ Stroud

  107. mark2001 Says:

    Mr. Crazy Caps…. We didn’t have the trade ammo to make that move. We didn’t have the 9th pick in the draft, valued at 1300. Ours is 19, valued at 875. Second round we are about 150 points higher. We don’t even have a 4th rounder. Looking at value, we would have had to give all our draft picks in this draft and more future picks than Carolina did to get up to that value. Probably the first rounder the next two years as well. Regarding listening…People don’t listen to ideas that aren’t that well thought out. And they usually start with all caps.

  108. Larrd Says:

    Trask will be better than the Panthers’ qb next season, I bet. Maybe not after that, but who really knows.

    Do they have the same owner who drafted Cam? I would not be too surprised if they took Richardson at one.

  109. SKBucsFan Says:

    Lol. Good for them. We should have done the same with our can’t miss #1 overall. Bears may still get the first overall in 2025

    Just remembe Larrd…they are both in new Offensive systems. And if Trask is a “deliberate learner” as we have heard, that perceived NFL advantage might be less than thought.

    We’ll be fine with Trask. We’ll be more than fine. Everyone relax.

    Some people are kind of funny. They think a team moving to the top of the draft with very reasonable costs will pick a guy that everyone says should stay in school, and cripple themselves for years and years. The truth is it’s very concerning because they are doing what it takes to get better and we are looking like a tank job this year.

    LOL< Chicago really fleeced the Panthers in this trade!
    I honestly did not think the Chicago GM had it in him to extort the Panthers like he did!
    IMHO, The Panthers gave up way too much to move up.
    Word is they are targeting CJ Stroud, but maybe they will reach for Richardson ?
    Whatever they do, they literally gave up the Farm to move up!
    The whole city of Chicago is laughing at David Tepper!

    Prediction: the Panthers suck, for years to come.
