The Associated Press has "growing concern" over Kenjon Barner sticking on the final roster.
It would be a bit of a surprise as Barner brings value as a possible return man and only needs to hold off Darrin Reaves for No. 4 running back duties. Still, the early part of Barner's career has not been promising. He earned just eight touches from scrimmage as a rookie while battling foot/ankle issues.
barner has done nothing. it can be a result of being stuck behind stewart, williams, and tolbert by default...but how does that explain reaves coming out of no where and taking advantage of the window of opportunity due to injuries and having more success than him?
does gettlemen play the wait and see role because of potential, or is barner done?
this is without a doubt one of the biggest doom and gloom threads i've read in a long on the huddle.
it's been 5-6 seasons since the panthers have had a respectable offensive line (2008)...and i can't remember the last time the panthers had decent depth anywhere on the offensive line. there was zero depth in 2008. carolina just got lucky, and for the most part everyone stayed healthy for the whole season.
how about letting things play out before announcing the death of cam newton.
