Tolbert on what his job will be

"I'd like to think that I'm the missing piece," Tolbert said. "The offense was ranked high (seventh) in total offense, and I'd like to think that I'm the missing piece to push us all the way to number one.

"Our potential is unlimited."

Tolbert said he knows what his job will entail but would only said it would include "a lot of fullback stuff" and "a lot of different stuff."

Tolbert on what he can provide for the Panthers

"If you're a ballplayer, you're going to find a way to get on the field," Tolbert said. "I've always prided myself on being able to catch the ball well and doing whatever I need to do to stay on the field – pass catching, blocking, running, whatever.

"You never know what's going to happen. Guys get hurt every day – Stew might get hurt or I might get hurt of DeAngelo. I'm not wishing that on anybody, but it's always better to have three than two or four than three."

Tolbert on being close to home

"Being this close to home helps," Tolbert said. "I don't have to buy as many plane tickets like when I was on the West Coast. People can just drive up."

Tolbert on knowing a lot of the coaching staff

"That had a big impact," Tolbert said. "It's just familiarity, coming somewhere where I knew people already. That just made it comfortable and easier to come here than elsewhere."

Tolbert on Cam Newton and the Goal Line

"You can't forget about Cam. He's the ultimate weapon – run, pass - he can do it all," Tolbert said. "If he's willing to give them up, I'm willing to take them. They call me the vulture for a reason.

"Some people say I have a knack for it. When I see a white line, I just make sure I get across it with the ball."

I think he does provide a different dimension from the FB position. I'd like to see how Chud uses everyone. Finally an exciting offense in Carolina....

I wanted to jump through my tv today when they were talking about the Tolbert signing & Cam finally having a weapon at rb to ease some pressure.

Who was saying that? I heard nothing of the sort. I heard a lot of stupidity about trading one of our backs, but nothing that ignored them.

I'd also like to know the source of this. Sounds like Mel Kiper Jr..

I was a bit taken aback with the signing of Tolbert, but he is a versatile guy and will give Cam another dangerous weapon... I like his attitude too.

I love the addition of Tolbert. Having a FB with his kind of skill set adds a body the D has to account for. I believe the running game may be the best in the league next season.

It wasn't Polian or Wiley. It was either the host or the guy beside Polian. They mentioned the Tolbert signing & I heard a comment of how it would give Cam a running game or something. I'm pretty sure it was a shot at or disrespect of double trouble but I could have misunderstood the statement.
