Do the panthers give cotchery # 89?

40 posts in this topic

Cotchery wore 89 all seven years with the Jets. His first year with Steelers, he wore 82 (the number he wore at NC State), but then wore 89 for his next two years with the Steelers (the last two seasons)

I'm squarely in the camp that believes letting Smitty go was the right decision. But I don't think Cotchery should wear his number. Too soon.

Jackie Miles won't allow it.

It's bad enough they didn't keep Moose's jersey special once he was gone...this would be a whole different level.

Then again, you never know. One of Smith's three biggest rivals in the NFL was the Panthers' first post-89 signing. 

 

And Legedu Naanee wore 17 just a year after we cut Jake.

absolutely not. after the regrettable way everything went down, keeping his jersey number untouched until he retires (i'm sure he'll sign a one-day contract here in a couple years and get the going-out he deserves at BOA) is the least we can do.
