the question is why?
I believe JR ended his local stint covering the Panthers when he called-out Dareeeen (as he put it) for writing an article that was completely false. He referenced it several times during a press conference and mocked him by not pronouncing his name correctly. Gantt was at the press conference. It wasn't long after that Gantt was gone.
I read the article and, once again, think Gantt is trying to provide insight where he has none. It has nothing to do with leadership, conflicts, etc. It has to do with age and $$. Lets not make it uglier than it already is. IMHO
For me ... I am not too surprised. The bigger question is what will our new GM do this week to fill the holes. He already said that free agency is to fill the holes so we don't go into the draft with glaring needs. That means we will be signing DBs, WRs and OT(s). I expect the Panthers will be active during free agency. Question is ... will it be early this week with any big names.
