Hate to Bring it up...

But ever since we signed Devin Thomas and Clowney, I have yet to see any more topics about Edwards and how he needs to start or play....love it.

Its a good problem to have when you have 4-5 young potential WR's fighting for a spot

It is good, though I am curious to see how he does out of the wildcat and when he gets the ball in space.

I think we'll see him later in the year. For now, I wouldn't be astonished if we ended up with more than our usual number of WRs active, especially if one or more are primarily going to be used on special teams. I think 4 is what we'll go with, and have Clowney, Thomas, and AE all coming in at different times.

It's only a nice problem to have if last week wasn't just an anomaly. I like to believe that he is, but yeah. If the rookies prove to be more rookie-like than #2-like, we're stuck with a bunch of rookies still learning their positions and a couple of young guys who couldn't make it elsewhere... and Steve Smith. Not the worst position, but not the best either.

Agreed, if they play like they did last week, I just don't see how he can make it on the field. When was the last time the Panthers activated 5 WR's? Karl Hankton when we was the special teams captain? Who do you bench so you can maybe run 4-5 plays a game.

I think you might see it late in the season if we are no longer in contention for anything, because I suspect there will be a desire to see how AE is coming along in games. He may just end up as the #4 though.

Pretty sure Gettis will be active for the rest of the season. If Lafell keeps catching balls, he will be too, so it'll just be that last spot to rotate between them.

The reason we aren't seeing them is because our other two rookies played really well last week. Wait until they have bad games again...then you'll see Edwards threads again.

IMO, this is the equivalent of a red shirt year for Edwards. Even when they drafted him, Hurney said it would probably be a 1yr project with him (or something to that effect), so it was pretty obvious from the beginning that they weren't gonna rush the kid.

If he does end up somewhere else, I hope he does well. He has the mentality and the skillset to be successful at this level of football, not sure why so many people here can't see that because their vision is clouded by hate for the local product that isn't their favorite local product.

When he gets it going, here or somewhere else, it will be a big F.U to all the haters.

Edwards, Gettis and LaFell will all be back next year. There is no way we cut any of them. As mentioned before Hurney made it apparent that the odds were extremely slight that Edwards would contribute as anything other than a special teamer this year. And with next years 2nd rounder invested in him, you better believe they will keep him around to see what they can squeeze out of him.

If Devin Thomas lives up to his first day draft status then we will have Smith, Thomas, Gettis, LaFell and Edwards as our WR corps next season. We have the rest of this season to see if that works out, but honestly I think Thomas is the only one the front office would be willing to let go of as early as next year.
