Charles Johnson came on late last year, and has been working in Peppers' spot. Tyler Brayton is the incumbent on the left, a solid run defender who kicks inside on third downs. While the Panthers would like to get Brown up to speed as soon as possible, the presence of Johnson and Brayton keeps it from being an absolute necessity for him to be first-down ready from the opener.
You guys should get together and rent a searchlight for game night, tape a panther logo overlay on the lens, and project it on the side of the building just under the blue lights, ala Batman. Probably not against the law, and the blimp would give aerial shots to the whole country. Oh boy.....man am I bored.
