Cotchery a panther

Recommended Posts



Cut 35 year old wr#3, sign 32 year old wr#3, pay them both. Sweet game plan. At least we have a proven starter now, even though we already had a proven starter. I thought we were building for "sustained success" not making lateral moves.

ESPN this morning:

"It wouldn’t make much sense for Cotchery to sign with the Panthers.

He wouldn’t get a chance to work with a new quarterback until training camp because of the ankle surgery that will sideline Carolina's Cam Newton for the next four months. Cotchery would also be joining a group of wide receivers that has been stripped of almost all of its parts. Toney Clemons , a former seventh-round pick by the Steelers, has the most catches of any wide receiver on Carolina’s roster, and he has a grand total of three receptions.

Cotchery is more of a complementary receiver at this stage of his career, and he excelled as a No. 3 wideout last season when he caught a career-high 10 touchdown passes. Why not reprise that role given his comfort with it, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ offense?

The wild-card here is money -- and whether the Panthers are so desperate for wide receivers they are willing to overpay for a player who has logged 10 NFL seasons and turns 32 in June."

I thought no one wanted to sign with the panthers? At least according to some recent dumbasses on here.

While numbers have not been disclosed I don't think he would have left charlotte without a contract (presumably to contemplate his destination) if the gman was waiving a large contract at him.
