I've had the feeling that Gettis wasn't coming along that well. This would explain why we have a roster full of WR's.

It's so procedural that we traded for a receiver the same day. That's just how we roll in carolina.

I don't think Gettis would have been cleared for mini-camp if something was still seriously wrong with him.

There is one real reason that this is being done. To free up roster space for camp. This allows them to stash Gettis on the Pup while allowing them to keep another WR longer into camp without cutting him. This gives them more time to evaluate the 10million WR's they have coming to camp.

ACL reconstruction recovery for a receiver takes longer than for a guy who doesn't have to cut sharply on just about every play. It doesn't mean Gettis won't play simply that it takes more time. Most running backs need almost 18-24 months to fully recover. Sure they can play in 6-8 months but to fully recover it takes longer. Look at Hogan for example, the same thing applies to corners.

With the new PUP rules in place, this is exactly why we placed Gettis on the PUP.

Also pry would have driven up the value of Murphy if it was widely known we were PUPing Gettis

I whether have Gettis be put on PUP for now, then risk him getting hurt once. Ala Thomas Davis. I can dig that for now. Hopefully he can be ready to go by the time the season begin.

Fox would have said it is what it is... I like the change.
