You're acting like we chose Martin over Collins. That's ridiculous. We claimed Martin off of waivers on March 27th, before the draft even happened. We pursued Collins just like every single team did and he signed with the Cowboys. Oh well, move on.
DG seemed really pissed about that when he spoke this morning. "Not going to go there" regarding whether Martin had an injury or not is interesting too. Seems Martin never told the team anything then out of nowhere he's like "I'm retiring and I have a back injury." Actually I kind of doubt he has any injury at all...
If you look back a bit there's a thread Jeremy posted with all Training Camp info. The times are posted on the Panthers website. Unless you're looking for autographs you don't really need to get there much earlier.
If we had Hardy, yes. But I don't see Frank or Ealy or anyone else stepping into his spot and playing nearly as well as him, so probably not. If one of them does though, it could have that kind of potential. Coleman/Boston with Norman and Peanut/Bene could be a pretty solid secondary. Front 7 is elite.
