Panthers Add DT Ed Johnson

Recommended Posts

The Carolina Panthers have reached an agreement with former Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle Ed Johnson to bolster depth along their defensive line, a source told ESPN.com's John Clayton.

The 6-foot-2, 296-pound Johnson was an undrafted success story who started 16 games as a rookie in Indianapolis in 2007. He was released by the Colts in 2008 but re-signed in 2009 and started four games before the 26-year-old was released again.

We don't have room for all these DTs, Hollis Thomas may be on his way out. I like Thomas, but he's getting up there in age. Maybe he can come back as a d-line coach.

I don't think this means we're cutting Kemo or Lewis, just that Hayden is on his way out.

Hopefully but Fox and company drafted Hayden. Plus as much as we all know he sucks he is younger than both of them, and I heard somewhere (probably on this board) that Kemo's tendon didn't quite right.... Let's just hope your right and I'm wrong

they're not going to get all sentimental over a 6th rounder. Hayden has BEEN gone since the end of the season.

A feeble kemo or old lewis is 10 times better than hayden.

I think Kemo is done here. Plus, last year he was hyped into being a much better player than he really is while hurt. People totally ignored how him being so extremely one dimensional hurt them in 08 often.

Assuming Hayden is going to get cut, we still have 6 DTs. I dont think Kemo's chances of coming back are that great.

I still think either Thomas or Kemo will be back.

Even with the other DT's on the roster, outside Kemo and Thomas, we do not have that Big Fat Guy. We need that Big Fat Guy...as evidenced to how bad our run defense was before Thomas...and how much it immediately improved after bringing him in.

I think Kemo is done here regardless of this move, we owe him too much $ for the value he provides to us and we have to make some space at DT.

You need to have a solid rotation at DT in this day and age of the NFL, and that means you need depth, that's what this move is all about. Ed Johnson is a Meeks guy, fits into Meeks scheme, this move demonstrates the influence Meeks has over the defensive personnel.

Leonard is 325 and Tank is 306 but we know he has the ability to get bigger.
