Zod

4 TE's

Shockey, Barnidge currently have contracts.

King, Rosario have been offered contracts.

If both King and Rosario sign, someone has to go.

IMO, because of Barnidge being a special teams beast, he stays. So it's down to Rosario or King. Hopefully King signs elsewhere because I am excited to see what Rosario can do in an actual NFL offense.

I think it's a given by this point that King is gone, if not Rosario too, despite the tenders. They can be pulled.

I actually think Rosario can be a star in Chud's offense if we re-sign him.

Hopefully you're right.

King gets the boot. He is a horrible pass catching TE where as Rosario is multi-talented and Barnidge seems to be more of what Rivera and Chud are looking for

king isn't horrible, he's just slow.

I would think Fox would want King over there in Denver. He is the ideal Fox player. Veteran, decent at everything, great at nothing, isn't a risk.

Maybe they tendered King so they can get a 6th or 7th round pick outta fox for him :)

Zod, you are around the team and know the players personally (I assume). I go to OTAs and Spartanburg once a year. My observation about King is that he is a leader. I also think everyone here should not discount the fact that he is a (Y) "hand in the dirt beside the tackle" blocker.

I do not know how important that is now (opposed to a TE who can split out, motion into block, or h back lead block). Frankly, I do not know if Shockey isn't better than King on the LOS..

Rosario is a player. Barnidge will be if given the opportunity, I think. Shockey will probably

when you have check down happy qb's you fill the stable with TE's, and RB's who can catch and block. Variety one way or the other to keep the defense guessing does not hurt either. I think this is just part of Clausen's development. Give him big sure-handed targets on the short routes and run the poo outta 4 WR's until he gets comfortable enough to air one out.

    • I honestly thought this was going to be a McCaffery thread. 
    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
