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.
Absolutely. I mean guys like Tramon Williams, Antonio Pierce, Ryan Grant, Shaun O'Hara, Cullen Jenkins, and Sam Shields would never have made the Packers or Giants rosters in the last 10 years and become very good players. And those are just from the Giants and Packers. I could go on. I know the odds are against them. But to count out every single guy is just stupidity. Some of the UFAs out there will make some teams, and some will be very good players for a long time. Never fails.
