    I was gonna say it's actually 4 more since we added Norwood, but you just forgot Tony Hills. I haven't seen the Glanton thing yet, so I'm assuming still 3 more.

    Writing has been on the wall, Norwood only sealed it. The overreactions are funny when you consider that we're arguing over a couple former UDFA receivers whose ceilings are being 4th receivers. Boykin did nothing in that role in Green Bay last year, Bersin did a little in Carolina. 
    And we always talk about Cam not having the same targets to grow with year to year, yet people want to cut the guy with whom he's played with for 4 years over someone that's been here like 2 months.

  3. jdpanther5 added a post in a topic Is Norwood the 6th WR or will he replace Bersin/Boykin?   

    Very interesting prospect, I remember really liking him last year and obviously we showed a lot of interest. We've also covered our bases with a conditional pick, so if he doesn't make it we won't owe anything. That said, only 5 days before the final cutdown is dicey...makes me think he'll make it as they can't exactly expect him to have mastered the playback by Thursday. 
    Another interesting thing about Norwood is that we have him under contract cheaply for another 3 years. Cotchery, Boykin, Bersin, Mike Brown, and Presley are all on 1-year contracts (Philly and Ginn have 2), and Gentleman has mentioned how he hated losing all his 1-year contract guys a couple years back, so the long-term nature of Norwood's deal may appeal to him.

  4. jdpanther5 added a post in a topic Colin Jones' miraculous overnight recovery from seemingly season ending groin injury   

    He would've had to have been placed on the PUP by now, he's ineligible. The idea behind the PUP and NFI lists is to accommodate players who have injuries/limitations that pre-date training camp. Once you pass a physical - and thus, return to practice - you become ineligible. I doubt we use our return designation on him, so it looks like he may be done for the year if this injury is deemed serious. 
    RE: PUP - We placed Brandon Williams and DeAndre Presley on the PUP before camp, everybody else was healthy. Williams has since passed his physical and returned to practice, so Presley is the only player left with PUP eligibility.

    Kevin Norwood? 
    I heard he was planning to use the Huddle podcast to break the news of the trade, but it leaked out. 
    On a serious note I'll guess Trai Turner. 
    EDIT: Everyone guessing Trai, I'll go with Ed Dickson instead.

  6. jdpanther5 added a post in a topic Looks like Panthers have signed WR Kevin Norwood   

    Unlikely a wideout, only a year after being a fourth round pick, falls to 25 in waivers. Likely a late conditional pick based on whether he makes the roster. Think Barner.

    Aaron Wilson official, it's a trade. No details yet.

    Only player eligible for the PUP is Presley, since he was placed on the list prior and hasn't practiced yet. Brandon Williams WAS eligible, but has since returned to practice.

  9. jdpanther5 added a post in a topic One Simple Hypothetical   

    I'll take KB back every time, hell we don't even know how Oher will do in a real game yet. With Bell in there we still have 4 good linemen, with KB out we have 0 legitimate receiving threats. 
    Like, is the drop from Oher to Bell REALLY greater than that of Kelvin to Philly?

  11. jdpanther5 added a post in a topic 2015 Carolina Panthers Final Roster Projection   

    I've gotta think there will be an outsider or two after cuts, looks pretty good overall though. Gentleman loves his pass rushers, and 4 DEs seems paltry given the talent we lack there. Plus Gentleman normally keeps 5. Also I think we keep a 6th LB, though not sure who (probably Trusnik or Jacobs). I'm also on the fence about Boykin, and I believe we'll add another receiver to the corps anyway. 
    QB, RB, DT (health pending), and CB are positions I could see us going with one less of in order to accommodate those moves.

    How exactly do two bad/invisible seasons "cancel out"? 
    The real Boykin is likely somewhere between his poor 12/14 and his solid stretch in 13.

    That's right; Lucas, Washington, and DGB were all briefly teammates in college. 
    Keep an eye on Oakland (James Dockery) and Tennessee (Byron Bell). We've currently broken even on compensatory-relevant players, but one of those guys getting cut would likely eliminate the chance of comp. picks for us altogether.

  14. jdpanther5 added a post in a topic Dean Marlowe - a UDFA who is under the radar?   

    Yeah I posted those snap counts earlier. I think they really liked Miley, he's just fallen behind in the rotation. Marlowe, however, is still getting snaps.
