The way things look now, If AE was a UFA< would he make even the practice squad?
Probably not. He would be one of the many players cut from the team outright. Has shown nothing on special teams and can't seem to hold onto balls against 3rd string DB's.
He would be given another chance next season.
That said, his cost in the draft probably assures him a roster spot, which is a shame. Does he have potential? Maybe. Can we afford another roster spot for a pure project considering we have to use up 2 roster spots because our field goal kicker can't do kickoffs? Nope.
Thank gawd you are not on the Panthers coaching staff then :out: One freaking preseason game and he's a bust? :rofl: seriously, some of you guys need to take a break and ENJOY the game because we don't have any control over the FO decisions.....we are FANS not coaches or executives. None of us get paid to evaluate players, and if we were THAT good at scouting, I seriously doubt any of you would be posting on this message board.
So all of you/us who are defending AE to these know-it-alls, just take it with a grain of salt. Mr. Brewski was correct in an earlier post, some guys (Zod & Panthro come to mind) are just trying to bait you....don't give in
Now, flame away at my post AE haters
I think he will be just fine after a few weeks of learning what he needs to do.
