A WHOLE PIE!

http://www.calgarysu...rolina-panthers

 


Nearly nine months removed from back surgery, Linden Gaydosh is frothing at the mouth to get back on the field.

 

And with good reason.

After spending his NFL rookie season on the Carolina Panthers injured reserve list following a procedure to fix a herniated disc that was pressing on his sciatic nerve, it’s been 17 months since the former University of Calgary Dinos defensive tackle played a meaningful snap in an actual game.

Sure, there was the 2013 CFL Combine last March — a showing that propelled him to the No. 1-overall selection in the CFL Draft last May when the Hamilton Tiger-Cats called his name, only to see him sign with the Panthers days later — and a sprinkling of mini-camp workouts and a truncated training camp in late July before he hurt his back.

But that’s not nearly enough time on the football field for a prospect with raw talent by NFL standards.

“Now, I’m fully back 100%,” Gaydosh said recently from his hometown of Peace River, Alta. “Now that I look back on it, the time has flown. But during the process? It took forever.

“The way I learn best is by doing it on the field. Whether it’s walking through or going full speed, I need the muscles to go through it to have the muscle memory to remember it. It’s going to be a bit of a process there, but at least I know I have an advantage on the mental side right now.”

I completely forgot about him. Maybe he can replace Colin Cole in the DT rotation this season.

The coaching staff will give Gaydosh every chance to replace Cole in the rotation.

He may be why they haven't re-signed Cole, or even talked to another DT as far as we know.

Love the story. And there is a spot open behind Star. We all know SCP is on board. I say, why not? We are in "Let the kids play so we can evaluate them" mode.

Give the kid a chance. Give the kid a chance.

You know, I love his excitement and passion.  I also love that he is coming into this year with more confidence.  The year on IR may actually be the best thing that ever happened to him.  It helped him get used to the NFL, the team, and realize what it takes to be an NFL player without the pressure to perform while he learned. 

 

I don't know how good he is, but I do hope he pans out, he seems like the kind of guy we'd love on the team.
