Panthers Using Fa's To Fill Needs.

Recommended Posts

I liked ts article and the quotes in it.

Not really anything we didn't know already, but the quotes are nice to read. they are informative quotes and not smoke screen deflections like Fox used to give.


On Tolbert:

“If you look at what happened last year with our offense, we didn’t have a pure, true fullback in terms of a guy that has the ability to not just block, but go out into the routes, run the flat route and catch the ball, run the pivot route and catch the ball, pass protect on a consistent basis,” Rivera said.

“Everybody keeps saying he’s a tailback. But he’s a fullback to us. Because again, we saw how we had used him in San Diego. We just thought this is a guy we’d love to have. ... If you can put an athletic, play-making fullback there, I think it helps you.”

On Punters:

“We’ve got some options, whether it’s in veteran free agency or the draft or rookie free agency,” general manager Marty Hurney said. “We feel like we’ve got some options there that we can be patient.”

On the Draft:

“I think we can use help in a variety of places. Obviously, we need to improve our defense to make that stronger,” Hurney said. “But we also want to constantly put weapons around our quarterback and make our offense as strong as it can be in a time where offenses sort of dictate games. You have to be able to score in this league to be able to compete, especially in our division.
