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
No change here. Joe Webb could make the squad, but I still have doubts.
Recievers - 6
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
No change here. McNeil's is back at practice but will be one of the first cuts.
Running Backs - 4
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
No change here.... yet. Once other teams cuts happen there will be.
Defensive Line - 9
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
No change, best in the NFL.....still.
Corners - 5
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
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.
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.
