I can see how he can fit on the team, without getting rid of Stewart or Williams...However, I don't understand Hurney's logic in signing him when we have other dire needs. This is just more evidence of Hurney's incompetence and how he should've gotten the boot along with Fox. His logic is old and outdated. Teams can't rely on scrubs and think they are going anywhere the following season in today's league...Hurney has a lot to prove to me this offseason before I consider him a decent GM again. Because right now at this point he's still terrible.

I don't get why signing a guy, probably on the cheap, to help out special teams and maybe contribute on offense is ever a bad thing.

I mean what free agent that has been signed so far would you have rather had? Just look at the contracts being offered to some of these players to understand why patience is much more important than just trying to go for big names.

When we already don't have that much money, it makes no sense to sign someone at your strongest position. It just makes trying to improve your weaknesses that much harder.

Free agent RB Mike Tolbert scheduled to have dinner w/ Panthers' official tonight in Charlotte, then meet with coaches Mon. at BoA Stadium.

How romantic

Since we're out of money hopefully they take him to a Golden Corral or Bojangles...

It looks like he's going to sign, expect him to sign on Monday. The question is for how much and how long the contract is.

:D seriously though, looks like it's just a matter of hours before we sign him. Not sure what all the hate is about.

No reason to not get at least a 2nd rounder for Stewart. Kid is an absolute monster.

I'm totally alright with it. I expect to see at least Mike Goodson released or moved if it happens.

His contract #s will tell us way more about J-Stew's future than useless internet speculation on a message board will.
