Before Dave Gettleman began collecting defensive tackles in Carolina, former general manager Marty Hurney used the Panthers' two picks in the third round of the 2011 draft on defensive tackles Terrell McClain and Sione Fua.
Fua is still in Charlotte. McClain is in Houston, trying to make the Texans' roster and show the Panthers they made a “terrible mistake” in cutting him last fall.McClain told Dave Zangaro of CSNHouston.com this week he “absolutely” wants to prove the Panthers wrong.“Every day I come out here and try to get better, trying to prove myself, that they did make a terrible mistake. Everything happens for a reason,” McClain said.“I don’t really want to harp on it. Whatever happened, happened,” McClain added. “The fact that it did happen, I can’t really complain. I ended up here in this great organization. I’m thankful for what they did, letting me come here that I can prove myself and can be in the NFL.”--Joseph Person
I can't hear McClain over me fapping to Star and Short.
In all seriousness, McClain is right. We made a terrible mistake by not releasing both him and Fua.
