    Despite recent trade, Panthers still in need of receiver help
    Yesterday the Panthers traded a conditional draft pick to the Seahawks for receiver Kevin Norwood. Norwood is a second year player who was drafted in the 4th round and had a pedestrian college career at Alabama. 
    Not quite the news most Panthers fans were hoping for. 
    If the Panthers hope to compete for the playoffs again this year, they will continue to look for help as proven veteran receivers are released this week. 
    The Carolina Panthers do not have a single wide receiver on the team that will demand more than single coverage. Without a premier player that must be covered by a safety and a corner for containment, opposing defenses will key in on the Panthers run game and neuter their attack from the start. If the Panthers cannot run the ball, they are looking at once again having one of the most lackluster offenses in the NFC. Cam Newton will be forced to be 80% of the Panthers offense with his improvisations, increasing his chance of injury. Not good. 
    Currently on the Panthers roster, possibly making the final cuts... 
    Ted Ginn - Probably the closest thing to a player that requires double coverage on the team. Has proven he can get behind corners which could cause concern for defenses on occasion. 
    Corey Brown - Also has proven he can break free from a corner, but until he starts catching the ball he is a lot like most NBA centers outside the three point line. Sure, you could cover him... but what would be the point. 
    Jerricho Cotchery, Brenton Bersin, Jarrett Boykin, Kevin Norwood - All possession guys that won't demand much extra attention from defensive coordinators. Reliable targets that should not be more than the third read on any given play. If any of these guys are asked to be the leading receiver on a team, something is very, very wrong. 
    Devin Funchess - A rookie that can't seem to stay healthy. Has had 3 hamstring issues in as many months. Missed time in OTA's, training camp, and now preseason due to injury. Could he contribute in a real way this season? Sure. But for the Panthers to rely on that is lunacy. 
    I would have more hope for the passing game if the Panthers had a high level offensive coordinator capable of changing and improving on the fly through creativity. Unfortunately, they do not. 
    Yesterday, Ron Rivera made it clear that if the current group of men did not show improvement in this week's preseason game that changes would be made. Yesterday's trade was a good start, but it isn't enough, not by a long shot.

    Seahawks Fan Reactions to Norwood...
    Always interesting to see how the fans of the other team react, says a lot IMO. 
     
    http://www.seahawks.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=112656
     
    "Another useless WR draft pick to add to the pile for this regime. Won't be surprised to see PRich added to the pile at some point this year or next offseason. This team's inability to evaluate WR talent is fairly astounding."

    "He might catch on somewhere else, but this team doesn't really go for possession receivers that aren't vets. Had less "pop" as a prospect than P-Rich, and P-Rich didn't have all that much."

    and probably the most positive comment ...

    "To me, he looked perfectly alright in very limited opportunities last year. There was really nothing to judge him by this year as he was mostly playing with Archer, and I'm not sure that dude completed a pass beyond 10 yards. Norwood had some injury issues and never really caught on with special teams; that's probably why they let him go so early. As a receiver, he made a few nice plays last year in a small sample size and didn't get much of a chance this preseason. I think his limited ST contribution probably sealed his fate more than anything else."

  8. Jeremy Igo added a post in a topic Is Norwood the 6th WR or will he replace Bersin/Boykin?   

    This is Gettleman's only player trade as a GM. 
     
    One has to think this kid has a roster spot for Gman to initiate his first trade.

    Is Norwood the 6th WR or will he replace Bersin/Boykin?
    Now that he is signed, he has to figure in the roster somewhere. 
     
    Does G-Man keep 6 receivers, or does he keep 5 and Norwood replaces Bersin/Boykin? 
     
    Would you rather see Norwood and Boykin both kept? 
     
     
    inquiring minds....

    Sounds like Gettleman landed a kid he would have drafted last year if not for the 2014 draft day trade.
