Recommended Posts

 

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.
