Why has Clausen's name been coming up so much? Am I wrong or didnt the team cut him?

 

from the Team page on the Panthers site:

TRANSACTIONS

Placed on injured reserve with an injured right shoulder by Carolina (9/1/13)...Waived/injured by Carolina (8/31/13)...Selected in the second round (48th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft by Carolina (4/23/10).

He cleared waivers as a released player which by rule he reverts back to his original team that cut him and is placed on IR.  or something like that.

 waived/injured is not the same as waived. When he passed through waivers he was defaulted to our IR. So yes, he's been on our teams IR all year.

I have a hard time believing that Bruce Campbell (UFA,  not yet listed) would be ranked higher than the names already mentioned (except Pickles).

hmm... top probably something like...

 

1.Hardy

2.Mitchell

3.Gross

4.Ginn

5.Captain

 

#5 is hard, because I think what Mikell brings to the defense is underrated on this board sometimes, but Captain is too.

 

#3 is primarily because of our how many FAs we have on the OL as it is and how weak it is.  The draft could change this, and I think losing Ginn would be a huge mistake.

 

#4 I think is a lock to come back, along with #2.  The others, I'm not sure on.

 

I put Gross at number 1.  He's a quality LT and we have NOBODY to replace him, nor do we have the $$ to sign a top LT.  He wants to finish a Panther and will probably sign for less than he deserves.  Get him signed now.

I would rank Florence higher at this point simply based on our need at the position.

If he's seriously considering retiring it will be hard to bring him back.

1 GROSS

4.Gano

5.Cole or Hixon

Finding a replacement for Byron Bell gives the offense an automatic boost

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
