CANADA'S GAYDOSH ANXIOUS TO RESUME NFL CAREER WITH PANTHERS

54 posts in this topic

 

In fact, the Carolina Panthers' sophomore defensive lineman is so anxious to get going, he's leaving for Charlotte, N.C., on Saturday. That's well ahead of the start of organized team activities April 21.

But there's a good reason for the six-foot-four, 305-pound Canadian's eagerness. Gaydosh, 23, of Peace River, Alta., spent his rookie NFL season on injured reserve after undergoing surgery last August for a herniated disc in his back.

The former University of Calgary star -- who was selected first overall in last year's CFL draft by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats -- was injured while performing a conditioning drill.

"Going back now I feel I have a chip on my shoulder and something to prove," Gaydosh said during a telephone interview Friday. "Not only to the Panthers but to myself.

I can totally see him balling out this year. He's got the tools and definitely the motivation. I'm sure he soaked up a lot just watching last season too. Would be nasty with star and kk

He might not even make the team, but he's still probably better than Fua.

I m kinda excited about the kid. He's a sleeper on the same level as brandon williams to me. I don't know that he will dominate hell don't even know if he will make the team. But I am very intrigued by his skills and possibilities of him filling in the rotation.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
