Panthers sign Lee Ward

Carolina Panthers sign Stanford fullback Lee Ward. Ward is listed on the Panthers roster as being 5'11 246lbs. 

 

I noticed him today during one on one pass drills where he looked pretty good catching balls out of the backfield. With Mike Tolbert's roster shot not being a sure thing this season and Richie Brockel being hurt last season, Ward could have an opportunity to showcase his skills and make a case for himself.

Brockel's spot more in jeopardy than Tolbert's imo. Tolbert's been reliable on 3rd downs and in the red zone. It's not a coincidence the offense sank when he went on temporary IR then revived when he got healthy. 1-7-1 without him vs. 6-1 with him.

Mike Tolbert isn't a sure thing? Yeah right

 

Fewer guys are than used to be.

 

This is camp life in the Gettleman era, where being good in prior seasons doesn't guarantee you a spot this season.

Hell he probably IS the best fullback in the league when healthy.  He doesn't have a history of injury problems either... poo just happens sometimes.

Dude was as instrumental as anybody to our success in 2013.  Plenty more plays than the ones above and he laid out some pretty big clutch blocks in crucial moments.  That game winning TD pass to Hixon against the Saints for one.  Tolbert chipped the LBer (or safety, can't remember) who had a free run right at Cam just enough to throw him off balance and let Cam get the pass off.
