Rotoworld says otherwise.
hmmm, rotoworld is generally on top of their stuff but they might have this one wrong. all i've got right now is the story on panthers.com posted today and my memory (for what little that's worth).http://www.panthers....23-c6e3850315a5
"As I had time playing with some great guys like Ron (Edwards), Charles (Johnson) and Greg (Hardy), we definitely put something together," Edwards said. "And we should be able to going forward."
Best I can tell, his contract with Buffalo was due to finish at the end of this season, but he was cut and was a vested veteran, so the Panthers did not assume that contract when they signed him. perhaps rotoworld is going off that info, which is still listed on spotrac.com as his current contract (it's not). or perhaps i am remembering something totally imaginary and he's a FA.
