FACT : The Panthers have what probably is the deepest group of Defensive Ends in the entire NFL.
When NFL teams look for valuable trades, they first look to teams that have talent to spare in the position of need. We all know this, it is obvious. The Panthers have 3rd string defensive ends that would be definite second string or possibly even situational first string players around the NFL.
Here are the locks to make the team, in order of skill level:
Frank Alexander (after 4 game suspension)
Listed are 6 defensive ends that belong on NFL rosters. However, there is probably only room for 5 on the 53 man roster.
I smell a trade.
Consider this as well...
They don't have to do anything now (before roster cut downs) due to Alexander's suspension. They can wait until the season has started when the demand may be higher due to injuries.
If they can't work a deal prior to week 5, then what do they do? Assuming all our guys are healthy, who goes?
