Problem with Wharton is he doesn't really fix anything. In his last two seasons with Carolina he was horrible and one of the lowest rated lg in the nfl. The right side is still a problem and nothing's been fixed, you could question that Wharton makes the line actually worse especially if Wharton doesn't move to rg or something is done there. This should be nothing more then a placement for amini when he gets back.
I don't think he was horrible.
Look at 2011. He started bad....finished very good. 2011 was also the no offseason/lockout, learn a new O season.
