@josephperson
Panthers GM Marty Hurney says he had a good meeting with Jeff Otah, who took part of his physical in Charlotte, but has to finish it tmrw.

@SteveReed_AP
GM Hurney says he met with Otah for about 45 minutes in Spartanburg and then the Otah went back to Charlotte for physicals.

By the way, I have pulled for Edwards since he was drafted. I am probably one of the few that own an autographed Armanti Edwards football card, but he frustrates the hell out of me.

It's tough to understand how a player can show up in training camp but disappear in games (even preseason games). My only explanation is that the defense in training camp doesn't go balls out as where during the preseason players are flying all over the place trying to make their respective teams roster.

So if we aren't keeping Otah, why the hell does he have to come in for a physical?

It takes Otah that long to finish a physical

Because if he passes it, we are keeping him.

To see if he is making any progress and then perhaps we will still be able to trade him instead of release him.

Last year, it looked to me like he was afraid of contact in pre-season games. Maybe he has gotten over this. I'm skeptical, but we should just watch this play out rather than rushing to judgement now.

Joe Person ‏@josephperson
Rivera getting a little frustrated with all the young guys on the sidelines, particularly Norman and Hogan. Said Butler has stepped up.


Steve Reed ‏@SteveReed_AP
Otah expressed to Panthers he wants to keep playing. No decision yet on if he will go on PuP list. Stay tuned tomorrow.


Steve Reed ‏@SteveReed_AP
So no decision on Otah's future yet. They will see how the physical goes. Physical isn't complete.

I wonder if Otah sees his career ending before his eyes and if he's okay with that...

I'd love to know what's going through his head and I'd love to know what was said when Hurney and Otah met behind closed doors for the first time since the initial trade.
