Panthers Trade for Jared Allen

Recommended Posts

I hope we don't cut one of our DTs because it's important to keep them in rotation especially with Star in his first game back. If I had to choose anyone on the line, I'd choose Horton. 

 

Edwards hasn't looked good this year, and I don't even remember Cole playing.  Wouldn't be horrible to cut one of those 2.  But yeah, Horton would be my choice if we cut a DE

I'm not going to scroll through 35 pages of posts, so sue me if this has already been said: Kevin Greene was 34 when he came to the Panthers. Allen is 33. I see a lot of similarity, so my hope is this works out as well as that did, even if it's just for a year or two.

Wonder how that phone call from his agent went.

"Hey Jared, want to ditch these chi-town clowns and go play DE for a 3-0 team?"

I'm guessing Allen will be used much like John Abraham was used for the Falcons circa 2008-2012.  Pass rushing specialist on 3rd downs/passing downs, subbed out on early downs and rushing downs.  But if Johnson misses extended time, he might be called upon to be a full-time starter, and according to the Bears fans I've talked to, he's terrible at stopping the run.

Let those Bears fans know he's a DE and not a standup OLB. Smh.

Looking at that video from him against the Cards, he looked old when he was getting in on run plays but looked like the real deal when rushing the passer. In the long-term, you are probably right that he is spelled during early/running downs.

Wonder why it's taking so long to decide who to cut?

They might be debating to put Charles Johnson on IR/designated to return, or cutting someone.  They are also dealing with the Thomas Davis and Luke Kuechly injuries, so they might be calling up Adarius Glanton from the practice squad.  Probably waiting until the last minute to make a cut.

He's been done but he's still better than Ealy

Ealy is young....the Kraken took a minute to develop too...So, I'll give the guy a pass.

From the official team website: 

 

 

 

CHARLOTTE – How much will Jared Allen contribute to the Carolina Panthers this season?

Time will tell.

But no matter how it works out, the Panthers sent a strong message with the move.

The time is now.

Love that.

Not only will you get a veteran pass rusher in Allen, you will also get a field leader that will elevate the play of others on the team. I love Allen from his days in Minnesota because not only was he serious on the field, he was also a funny guy and I think his personality will fit well with the rest of the roster.

If CJ drew that I'm ready to declare him Legend.
