It looks like I was wise to leave Kenjon Barner off of my roster last week. After speaking with Jonathan Jones on the Huddle Podcast last night, he almost has me convinced the Panthers keep Joe Webb, mainly as trade bait. Could be, but I'm not there yet.

 

 

QBs - 2

 

Cam Newton

Derek Anderson

 

No change here. Joe Webb could make the squad, but I still have doubts.

 

 

Recievers - 6

 

Kelvin Benjamin

Jericho Cotchery

Jason Avant

Brenton Bersin

Tavarres King

Philly Brown

 

No change here. Bersin solidified his position on Sunday night with a couple of great grabs, including a TD. Philly Brown is probably our new punt returner.

 

 

Tight Ends - 4

 

Greg Olsen

Ed Dickson

Richie Brockel

Brandon Williams

 

No change here. McNeil's is back at practice but will be one of the first cuts.

 

Running Backs - 4

 

Jonathan Stewart

Mike Tolbert

Deangelo Williams

Darrin Reaves

 

The Huddle is big on Fozzy Whitacker right now, and I am too, but I don't see him making the squad over Reaves just yet.

 

 

Offensive Line - 10

 

Nate Chandler

Trai Turner

Ryan Kalil

Amini Silatolu

Byron Bell

Garry Williams

Chris Scott

Brian Folkerts

Fernando Velasco

Andrew McDonald


No change here.... yet. Once other teams cuts happen there will be.

 

Defensive Line - 9

 

Charles Johnson

Star Lotulelei

Dwan Edwards

Greg Hardy

Kawaan Short

Colin Cole

Kony Ealy

Wes Horton

Mario Addison

 

I said last week that Wes Horton had been playing well, and low and behold he gets in reps with the first and second string. He looked solid again. Keep an eye on this kid.

 

Linebackers - 6

 

Luke Keuchly

Thomas Davis

AJ Klein

Chase Blackburn

Jason Williams

Ben Jacobs

 

No change, best in the NFL.....still.

 

Corners - 5

 

Antione Cason

Melvin White

Bene Benwikere

James Dockery

Josh Thomas

 

I now have Josh Thomas over Josh Norman. Norman's bone headed penalty drew the rage of coach Rivera. I like Josh Norman, but I feel like there is no more room in the Ron Rivera Doghouse for him. Sometimes players just can't get out of their own way. Norman can prove me wrong Friday night, and I hope he does.

 

 

Safeties - 4

 

Roman Harper

Thomas Decoud

Anderson Russell

Colin Jones

 

I now have Anderson Russell over Robert Lester. Lester has struggled as of late, but Russell is rising to the task. Keep a close eye on this competition Friday night. It is very fluid.

 

 

Place Kicker

Graham Gano

 

Punter

Brad Nortman

 

Long Snapper

JJ Jansen

 

Practice Squad

Marcus Lucas

Andrew Norwell

Carrington Byndom

 

Now that 10 players are allowed on the practice squad, I have a feeling a few more offensive line prospects from other teams may be on it.

Some of these tight positions, such as RB, you have to think about special teams. With your current roster, only Brown can return both kicks and punts and Cason can only return punts. This is why I believe Fozzy makes it. That and plus he has looked like the best RB after Stewart and Williams.

As far as Norwell, I'm not sure we want to risk him getting picked up by another team while on the PS. His ability to play all positions on the line besides center I think gives him a roster spot.

I can see Boston going to IR. Not sure why it hasn't happened yet. I kept him on my roster because I'm not sure what the plan on him is and also no one else has stepped up. Both Lester and Russell have looked equally bad.

I also can see Frank getting traded with Wes Horton stepping up. Until that happens though, I'll keep him on mine. I don't really like to make too many predictions because a lot can happen during final cuts. I just like to work with what we currently have.

And even though Norman lost his cool last game, he is still our 4th/5th best CB on the team. Thomas and Godfrey are terrible.

If Boston goes to IR before Saturday, you run the risk of losing him like Tyler Gaffney

Could we maybe stick Boston on the 6 week ir rule and bring him back into the season?

Really hard to argue either of these.   Once you reach that 53.  Every team is looking at every other teams roster of PS and waived players.

 

I would imagine that ever preseason game there is someone from just about every other NFL team.  Scouting potential steals.

No point really. Lets be realistic, he is a 4th round rookie who has missed OTA, Training Camp, and Preseason.

 

 

If we are counting on him..... we are worse off at safety than I thought.

Could Norman go the way of Barner.  He would have decent trade value.

Thats the right question.

 

We are so deep at DE, and other teams know it. I feel like there will be a trade at some point. Hell, Addison is a baller and could get us a late rounder at least.

I really dont wanna let Addison go tho. I kno with the addition of Ealy, and Horton progressing, we could let him go. Especially since Alexander seems to be safe. I still feel meh about it. However, i just keep thinking there is a good chance Getts grabs another DE in next year's draft anyway. Haha! So why not......for the right price of course.

I'm not sure we would trade him right after extending him.

It could be they played Wes Horton more early in the last game to make sure other teams had plenty of tape of him going against legit NFL players.

 

 

Think about it.

I know Lester has struggled, but I want the guy on the team. He seemed to have a nose for the ball last season, and if our safeties are expected to be decent at best anyway...give me one who finds the ball and gets takeaways.
