little surprising to hear.
Though it's fairly apparent Tuesday's move was as much salary dump (Harris had $7.7 million left on his contract over the next three years) as about getting young players on the field, Fox made no effort to hide his feelings when asked his opinion Sunday morning.
"We've got a budget," he replied matter-of-factly. "And that had something to do with it."
The Panthers got backup LB Jamar Williams in the deal, who could add some depth which was needed. But Fox's statement made clear it might not have been his preference.

The single-best play I saw in all the sessions was by the other starting cornerback, Chris Gamble. He made a diving interception Saturday on a ball that looked like he had no chance to get. Very quietly, Gamble has been putting together a pretty nice career and I wouldn't be surprised to start seeing this guy get some more recognition.
I came away really impressed by what I saw out of Armanti Edwards, the rookie out of Appalachian State. He played quarterback in college, but the Panthers are going to use him as a receiver and a punt returner. This kid is pretty dynamic and can be an instant factor in the slot. Fox and coordinator Jeff Davidson haven’t used a slot receiver much in recent years. Might be time to change that and there could be other ways designed to get Edwards some touches. In fact, this kid could turn out to be what some people thought The Golden Calf of Bristol could be. Plus, I think Edwards’ throwing motion might be better than The Golden Calf of Bristol’s.

I absolutely loved the Norwood pick. He was a steal in the 4th round, IMO. He probably would have been gone way before then if he was a true DE instead of a DE/OLB tweener.
