By rule other players can wear it. By precedent they didn't stop Jeff King from wearing Moose's jersey or Legadu from wearing Delhomme's.
The Panthers have had a lot of great players and it is disappointing to see their jersey # on someone else. I think the Panthers should respect the accomplishments we've had even if we're not a top tier team. Guys like Fox, Delhomme, Moose, Smith took us to places we'd never been and haven't been since and may never be again (hopefully not that).
Those guys are sacred Panthers until someone comes along and tops their success. It's been over a decade and really no team has come close to matching their success.
If Cam takes us to a SB or wins one then we can't start to reevaluate and change the order of things. Till then I don't really take criticism of our best players and best coaches seriously.

No. We were wise enough to get Gano to not wear No. 4, let's leave #89 off-limits.

I don't see it happening. Team PR ran with the Agent 89 thing, I think I #thankyou89 was spread by the official twitter page. Even if they didn't care it would be a terrible idea for Cotchery.

I'm sure Gettleman doesn't care, but I do. I didn't like when we gave out Mooses #87...
