    I guess they expect to re-sign Jonathan Stewart next year.

    Doubtful. How many 43 million dollar running backs can one team support?

    Yeah, that's what makes it weird to me. Mike Goodson was a decent RB3, but Stewart could be a #1 somewhere. I doubt they retain him, given that he's making 1 mill this year and it's the last year of his contract. I thought Stewart would get traded, probably for a 2nd or 3rd round pick. I know the Browns, Giants, Raiders and Packers are in the market for RBs, so whatever. Seemed like a good time to cash in on Stewart.

    We'll be having this exact same discussion about Ben Tate in a years time. You can't pay 2 great RB's #1 money, even if you can get 1000yd seasons out of both.

    I know the Raiders got a ton of compensatory picks this year, but I thought they couldn't be traded? So I guess its either a 5th or 6th? In which case it isn't a lot if that guys going to make a contribution.

    They updated the trade details:
    http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/7756700/2012-nfl-free-agency-carolina-panthers-trade-mike-goodson-oakland-raiders-bruce-campbell

    Personally, I think the Panthers got a steal here. Bruce Campbell was one of the greatest actors of the 80s. Evil Dead has such a great cult following that even having him on the bench will bring in fans just to see if he plays. Problem is that I don't think the NFL will allow him to use a shotgun on the field, so he may not be as good as he was projected.
