..by us, per ESPN... RR & Co knew who they wanted.. I dont recall seeing this kind of thing in past years, did I miss it or is it not normal? Anybody know about any of these players? Mostly special teams filler or camp fodder?


3 RBs?????? Oh fffuuuuggggg, now JStew's definitly gettin traded, we got 3 people to cover his production..

I don't know about being traded. Maybe walk away, but I don't think he'd be traded. Especially now that the Draft is over.

You would think one of those RB will make the team. Josh Vaughan is a special teams guy only and certainly upgradeable.

I think they are hunting for that scat back that Rivera wants and are just bringing in lots of candidates to evaluate.

not necessarily. We may see some guy better out there that a team releases after preseason that we decide to go get and lose these guys. I'm excited about that Princeton guy. 5'7 with 4.3 speed. From the youtube videos he definitely seems like that Darren Sproles type. Doesn't mean he will be as good.

Some comments like these piss me off. These kids have been given a shot. Their parents are proud of them right now and they are excited to get a chance. Just to write them off and say they suck before they even step foot on the field makes you look ridiculous and demeans each kid. Right now they are Panthers.

Undrafted gems are found every single year. Every. Single. One. Let these guys go out there and give it what they have got. Form your opinions about them later. The competition of the underdogs fighting relentlessly to beat the odds are what makes teams better. Rivera preaches competition. The fans need to embrace it too, no matter how much each player we bring in appears to "suck".

That's great that it pisses you off and good for them that they have been given "a shot." However, this is a business first, and a sport second. If you don't get drafted, you instantly have a slimmer chance of making the roster than the players that were drafted. These "undrafted gems" you speak of don't show up very often and for every "undrafted gem" you can mention, I can mention a first round player that is considered to be one of the best in the game. The fact is most of these undrafted guys if any of them won't even see the third week of the preseason. No need to get offended, they are getting there chance and I'm sure they will make the most of it but don't expect them to go out there and make the team.

If you want to speak on "business", you should know a businessman leaves no stone unturned when looking to make a profit. Not saying they will make the team, but we had 3 of our UFA make it last year and helped this team in some way. It's possible it will happen again.

Also teams look for a chance to sign the cheaper guy to do the same job equally, if not better than the guy making more money that he's competing with. That would be the business aspect.

Last year was also a rebuilding year for this team and through countless injuries UDFA's among with other players that wouldn't be on teams like the Packers and Giants rosters were able to find refuge with the Panthers.

If you think that any of these guys is more than a camp body you are highly mistaken. These guys are brought in to fill out a roster and if one pans out great but if they don't then the team has the "who cares" attitude. The players got a nice little stipend for participating and now they will move on into the next stage of their life whatever that may be.
