Why do I feel like Rex Ryan is about to turn this joker into a pro bowler???

Anybody else have an eerie feeling that he's gonna ball out up there?

Man I hope not.... That would truly be a shame!


feel the same way.

Trading Otah at least frees up a roster spot for someone that actually play, not someone that will just mope around and complain about athlete's foot or some other injury he has.

The Panthers get a pick (albeit a late one) and open up a roster spot for someone else, possibly a special teams player; maybe someone like D.J. Campbell.

Pretty obvious he had talent when on the field, but that was a rarity. Everyone should be able to figure out why we just traded him. Rivera tried to get his act together and it didn't happen, for whatever reason. Otah was dead weight, even when coach Ron called him out nothing changed with him. So the dead weight was "cut loose." It's a statement to what's being built in Carolina, and the type of coach we have (it's a good thing.)

I don't understand those complaining about what we are getting for Otah.

No one, no matter how optimistic they are by nature, could have expected Otah to get significant time on the field this year. And if all of us know it, you think other teams don't?

We are lucky to get anything for him.

talent without motivation is worthless

Lol hop on Twitter just to enjoy the national media touting Jeff Otah as a half of fame caliber player now that he's a Jet.

Yeah, but it sucks that he's probably going to go out and become a pro bowler for them. We spent a 1st rounder plus to get him and gave him up for almost nothing.

Too bad we didn't have the Wizard of Oz here in NC for him.

Otah has got to be one of the biggest wastes right next to Brown. At least it is a wake up call to everyone else that no is immune to being cut, even a first rounder if they don't produce.

Otah was pissing Rivera off big time with his lack of effort...

Problem is some people are digesting it wrong. They are looking at it as us trading a first round pick for a 4th round pick.

Otah wore out his welcome here and would have likely walked for nothing next year. Its not hard to envision Murphy having more value to us at this point then Otah did.

If it leads to a high pick in return, that's cool with me.

We traded Jenkins to them and he was good for a year or two but we still got the best of the deal. It isn't whether Otah will be a pro-bowler there but would he be one here. And the answer was sadly, no. What he does there has nothing to do with what he would have been here.

High pick is not happening I think it will be a 4th at most and possibly a 6th based on # of snaps etc....
