Just bc he was a nice story doesnt mean he is any good....he could get someone hurt.

Okay he was as good as it gets for an undrafted rookie being put in a starting role. Who you want ? Who? Tell me who. Shut up and let the kid play.

As soon as Rivera was inked, I had a very good feeling about our culture. It has grown into a neverending volcanic eruption of optimism...caint hep mysef

Just to counter the OP...What could we get for a guy who has a history of one of the most serious injuries(Thomas Davis and ACLs)?

I see what you are getting at, however it is more about the simple fact of being a Carolina Panther.

Otah did not exemplify what it means to be a Carolina Panther, so he was shipped out. Traded, cut, anything... If you play the Panther way, D-Will, Beason, Kalil, Johnson, you will be retained, rewarded, and even arguably overpaid.

I understand TD's trade value is not the same, but how many teams would even give a guy with 3 ACL's surgeries an opportunity? We did, because he 'keeps pounding' :)

I agree. I'd just lol if I were a gm and got a call about trading for a guy with TDs history.

They attempted to make Peppers the richest defensive player in the NFL a season after looking like he was in la la land and didn't give a poo per 95% of the board.

Hurney magic?

Rivera is no joke. Otah had his chances for years. He had to establish himself to rivera, clearly he failed miserably.

In speaking with a player I know several months ago he stopped short of saying Otah was lazy but inferred that he could have done more in rehab to prepare. He then said T Davis was one that went at rehab like he was playing the Superbowl. I guess his point was Rivera wants to see effort and Otah did not show enough of it.
