I don't know if he will, but I hope the guy finally does something.

he's like dwayne jarrett in a way, good enough to bring back every year just hasn't worked out yet. If he can't succeed with the guy who made gates a star then he just isn't cut out for the NFL. I think there is certainly potential there though.

That's good news, hoping Barnidge can take on a Shockey-esque roll for us this season and be a receiving threat in the red zone especially. Kid needs to step up and he will get his chance to do so.

We need to find a solid #2 TE before week 1.

I think Barnidge can be that solid #2. I remember a few good catches by him a couple seasons back and he seems to be good after the catch. You'd be surprised at how good a franchise QB and talent like Cam can make people that are average players look.

Except that Dwayne has 1 td and 2 duis. Hah.

He's nothing like Jarrett

He was a 5th round pick

John Fox does not use TEs and he was put on IR last season after an injury

When on the field he performs

Barnidge will be Carolina's offensive breakout player of 2012

People asking for a solid #2

Really how many teams think the #2 TE is a priority?

lol that's a pretty big statement. He's always looked stiff to me but in a vertical passing attack that's not a huge weakness since he's snuck up field pretty well. He looked good on that screen in the 1st preseason game last year.

We have too much talent for Barnidge to put up much stats. But if by "breakout" you mean like around 300 yards a a few tds i can see that happening.

like my original statement said, just like Jarrett he's around every year but never works out. People talk about his potential but it never works out. The reasons things don't work out are different. But in the end the result is the same. Hopefully he stays healthy, gets "a fair shot", and achieves his "potential".
