Ready to run after year of broken promises
“Last year was a lot of broken promises, shall I say,” Tolbert said. “But now we have a new offensive coordinator and things are starting to come to light.”
Tolbert signed with Carolina in 2012 after his first four seasons in San Diego, after he says he was told he would run the football and also catch balls out of the backfield as a hybrid-type back in two tight-end sets.
He finished with 183 rushing yards, his lowest total since his second year in the league, and went from 54 catches and 433 yards with the 2011 Chargers to 27 catches for 268 yards with the Panthers.
The more I hear people speak after his departure, the more I think Rob Chudzinski wasn't exactly the most popular guy in the Panthers locker room.
