Maybe getting cut will be the wake-up call Kentwan needs to light a fire under him?

he won't do anything just like our other dt's, he shouldn't even be on an nfl roster. luckily the panthers 2011 defensive line might be the worst in nfl history

I'm hopeful for what he can do here as he has worlds of talent... I've stated this several times over since we picked him up.

I just hope this isn't another Devin Thomas situation, lol.

I wish we could have held onto our DL coach from the last couple years, Brian Baker. Nevertheless, here's to hoping Kentwan can turn into a D. Lewis and acquiring a vet run stuffer.

could end up being a steal, or could end up being a bust. Can't help but to have some type of hype for getting a former first rounder for nothing. The kid looks like he doesn't offer hardly any pass rushing ability, even in college he never had a lot of sacks so I guess he is just a NT?

why are negative things about a college career i.e. "not many sacks" relevant and positive things are not or "well that was college"?

He got upfield and collapsed the pocket. he also was always getting his hands up. he's quite athletic and a sure tackler. KB can hold his own in the middle. Or at least he could in college

On a serious note, I agree. One thing I am comfortable that he'll be able to do is hold his own at the point of attack. You want see huge gashes coming from his gap responsibility. He won't light the world on fire with sack numbers but he'll help the lb's sleep better at night....Reed thinks he's a lock for the 53 take it fwiw.

jsut watched a clip of KB on the local news here in greensboro NC.

You can tell he was not too happy about his career so far. He mentioned been around the block, political game, and down and out. It seems his confidence is off a bit but it also seems that he knows he has to prove himself to truly overcome whatever he feels are his misfortunes thus far. C'mon KB!

it was on wxii channel 12 if anyone wants to look for it. not on the site yet when i looked
