As the the temperatures increased today at the Carolina Panthers and Miami Dolphins joint practice today, so did the players' tempers. During one on one drills, Panthers left tackle Michael Oher took Dolphins DE Olivier Vernon out wide and eventually to the ground at the feet of the spectating players. After the play, Vernon stood above Oher a move that is probably less than courteous. Oher initiated helmet to helmet contact while getting back on his feet. This escalated into punches being thrown. Panthers right tackle Mike Remmers then runs in and grabs Vernon in defense of his fellow Panthers tackle. View full article
The Carolina Panthers offensive line depth chart has become a little more clear now that the OTA practices have come to an end and the Panthers Mini-Camp is set to begin. Here is how the depth chart is shaking out according to my eyes and notes... View full article
The Carolina Panthers have signed offensive tackle Michael Oher two a two year deal. Oher struggled last season with the Titans, but some speculate it was mainly due to a nagging toe injury. Oher spend the last few games on injured reserve. He is now said to be healthy and anxious for a new start. It is debatable if Oher is an upgrade over the much maligned Byron Bell. Pro Football Focus had Bell ranked next to last in 2014, with Oher a few slots above him. If injuries did play a role in the decrease in Oher's performance, he could very well come in and perform at a higher level than Bell on day one. I do not think the offensive tackle positions are concrete yet. I still do expect for a rookie and/or possibly another free agent offensive tackle to be brought into the mix by the Panthers along with right tackle Mike Remmers. I am convinced Remmers will be given a shot at left tackle at some point this offseason. Afterall, Nate Chandler was given that opportunity last offseason... so why not? Edited for front page by IGO
