Excellent pickup. And an obvious one. No other O-lineman out there was better than Travelle.

I get that they were waiting to see if there was a miracle cut this weekend they could sign, but it certainly would have been nice if they signed him 2 weeks ago so they had more than preseason week 4 to evaluate and see where he fits.

 

Vet who is very familiar with the scheme and his Line mates. Shouldn't be that hard of a transition.

This actually pisses me off that it wasn't done sooner. More of Gettleman and his arrogance


PFT said in this way Wharton didn't had to go through TC. Made plenty of sense to me.

I hate to be a "kill joy" but Wharton left Carolina in disgrace. He couldnt stay healthy. He missed the last 3 seasons of his career on the sidelines.

I hope he comes back strong b/c we need it, but I'm far from thinking he will do much on the field

Who would have thought that a year after letting him walk we'd be so happy to see him again?

Tells you just how atrocious our OL has been. Good needed signing nonetheless.

Didn't like the idea of letting him go in the first place except for money wise.

Question now comes down to is can he keep healthy through the season with that leg of his. Is he in good enough of game shape to start right away or will he play as a back up roll for the first a few games of the season before he earns the starting spot. While he got sign to come in and help the oline out. Doesn't make him an automatic starter. His role for a while will probably be as a back up and come in on certain downs and stuff like that. We have to wait to see if he will make the final cuts. Guys have been know to be signed and let go a week or two later. I really hope Wharton comes in and makes a big impact and help this oline. But there are just to many questions still out there that needs to be answer at this point in time about him.

He played 16 games Cam's rookie year...which is why DG should of brought him in earlier if he was going to get him.

He is probably really out of shape I would assume though....

We asked him to take a pay cut, he refused and was cut IIRC.
