I was sort of thinking about our cb position and wondering if we should invest a higher pick in the draft, or just look to supplement the position in FA.  Then that got me thinking about Melvin White.  There were a couple of games where he made some brilliant plays, and a couple of games where his lack of experience really showed up and he got exposed....as expected of a rookie.  

 

Dave Gettleman has eluded to the " answer might already be on the roster" mantra.   Could Melvin White with some more development be that answer?   Overall for an undrafted rookie FA, I think we could all agree that he had a great season and overachieved in a lot of ways.   Will he continue to grow, or does he just not quite have the talent to be our starter next year?

 

Anyway, just interested to see what you guys have to say.  Have a great Superbowl Sunday everyone.

 

Go Panthers.

Go Huddle.

 

Edit:  I sort of asked the wrong question, because he cost nothing to keep.  I mean does his role greatly diminish or should he be the starter going into training camp?

pretty sure he was on a 1 year contract, so there is no cutting him.

 

only have to decide whether to re-sign him.

 

I hope we find someone better, but if not, he was a part of a very good defense.

Why would we ever cut a guy who showed something? He is dirt cheap...wed just have to gamble on another guy like him.
