I don't understand the hate Byron Bell gets from the Panthers fan base. By no means is B.B. a top caliber LT in the NFL, but he is also not the absolute worst. He may be in the bottom of the starting LT's in the NFL in terms of production but, he is being paid $2 million, this is peanuts for an LT. He is not overpaid and he actually seems to be by all accounts a nice guy. Plus, where would we be without him? Keep in mind he replaced Jeff Otah at RT when Otah decided cheeseburgers were greater than an NFL career. I'm not some Bell homer, he's not by any stretch a top tier player but, not keeping him for depth at both LT and RT would probably be a mistake unless he wants serious money, which I don't think can be justified by his play.
