A league source tells us that, earlier this week, the Carolina Panthers terminated the employment of long-time scout Pete Russell.

Russell, widely respected in league circles, will now have trouble finding work, given that the firing occurred more than a month after the draft.

I seriously doubt they fired him because he was old.

And you can view firing him after the draft both ways. They did use him and dump him, but they also gave him work. Then you add in that he could have told other teams our draft plans. It makes sense to let him finish out this year and then let him go.

I think JR should release a public statement or something so crazy theories like those don't get any legs to stand on.

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
