gave up on this guy 2 years ago.

I know Rivera wont stand for it. I am 100% positive he will never play a game for the Panthers again if he is not ready by training camp, with a new attitude.

I'm not suggesting that he wastes a roster spot. What I'm saying is that he should be given a chance to prove himself through OTA's and Preseason if he's still healthy. If we decide not to keep him at the end of the last Preseason game, we'd still have untill Wk 6 to trade him or cut him.


Its not like he has anything to prove except getting on the field. If he does that he is golden if he does not he should be cut. Also he has no trade value so thats gone.

He has to prove not only that he can get on the field, but that he can stay on the field. Also he has to learn the new offense and even fumbling Goodson had trade value, so I know Otah does.

Huddlers will vehemently defend Otah, right up until he gets cut. Then, all of the sudden, people will act like they knew from the start that he was a wasted effort.

Same thing happened with dwayne jarret (though he was lazy, not injury prone), and will happen to Armanti as well. The only time this doesnt happen is when one guy completely sucks and another guy comes in and does much better at that position (Clausen to Cam)


It's not that it is the same people changing their minds, it is that posters will post in threads and reply to other posts they feel are relevant to their opinions.

There are very few knowledgable and rational posteres left.


There were few to begin with. And quite a few of the smart ones rarely make serious posts.

He's making every effort to heal. If he does, we will see some stellar games, he is a definite motor grader. If his knee stays inflamed, his play time will be limited. Otah's in good hands. I hope his genetics let him heal.

I'm not sure why we make weekly posts about Otah, Carolina is in a perfect situation with the dude. If he doesn't perform, we are done with him at the end of the season. If he performs outstanding, we trade him because you never dude who only performs well in his contract year, and get some value for him in a trade or let another team buy him outright. And for whatever reason you don't believe that Bell can't improve, which I guess means that Cam can't improve either.

This being his last season, how would we trade him if he plays outstanding? You suggest resigning him and hoping another team would trade for him?

Do you understand the concept of Free Agency. As chef17 stated, if we don't re-sign him HE WALKS. There will be no trading of Otah, unless we sign him to a big contract and then trade him....which is highly, highly unlikely.

Ok, my bad, I misunderstood, but either way if he performs well this year. I would still get rid of him. There is no way I would sign him to a big contract if I was Carolina. I've seen it in too many sports, where the athlete, who is not performing up to his potential, has one great season at the end of his contract, the local team and several others offer up big dollars, the player goes to the highest bidder and sucks for the rest of his career.

If he doesn't practice in training camp we will likely cut him to save the salary given we won't be resigning him to another contract. Chances are we are giving him every opportunity to be ready for camp right now. Hopefully he is cutting weight and working out so he is ready. If he can't get motivated in a contract year, he can't be motivated, period........
