I know a thread is made any time a player is cut but I could see us having an interest at guard if he is willing to take close to vet minimum.

 

Get it done Getts!!

He's coming off a serious injury.  ACL tear right?

Wharton would be a nice piece. 

 

Does he have a house in the Charlotte area? He did live play here for a while, and got paid.  

 

Might increase our chances.

Is an injured Wharton better than a healthy Hangartner?

He tore an ACL in August last year.  Should be pretty healed up.  Also very possible he didn't heal good and that's why he was cut.

He's certainly worth a look and I bet we will due our diligence on talking with him.

Well I guess he got the short straw out of that contract impasse that led to him being released

If he is still injured than no.

 

Hnagartners value is he can play center in a pinch....but I guess Byers can as well

If we did sign him we would still keep Hangman I am sure. Seems like we normally keep 9 anyway. I'd rather have Brandon Moore personally.

Honestly Wharton is easily top 5 all time offensive lineman for the Panthers, but now he's old and injured I'd say we give him a shot but as the others have said vet min should be it.

Did some research... Looks like he's not ready to go yet and would have started on the pup list as well.
