REPORT: Panthers have kicked the tires on bringing back DT Kwann Short on a 1-yr deal


Recommended Posts

I really dont see how he fits.  Last year we had 4 DTs on the roster during the season,  you would have to think it will be the same this year.  Right now we have Myles Adams, Derick Brown, Woodrow Hamilton, Bruce Hector, Phil Hoskins, PJ Johnson, DaQuan Jones, Daviyon Nixon, Mike Panisiuk, Bravion Roy.  That's 10 guys going for 4 spots. Is he better than 6 of them at this point? Derick Brown, Bravion Roy, and  Daviyon Nixon are probably shoe ins, that leaves 1 spot.  Not to mention we trying to get younger.

Adams, Hamilton, and Hector been cut. I also think you missed a guy "frank Herron" whom just got cut today to sign two of the try-out players. 

I mean its Brown, Jones, Roy, and Nixon will the clear lead. Hoskins and Panisiuk for PS. But Nixon could screw up and they bring a KK/FA to fill the void. Its nice to see the FULL rebuild only take 2 years, great work panthers.

Derrick Brown and DaQuan Jones would be the starters with 2020 6th round pick Bravvion Roy and 2021 5th rounder Davyion Nixon backing them up.

It's clear signing KK would give the group excellent depth.

They only carried 3 DTs for about half the season last year. I dont know what type of front Snow wants to run. 4 is plenty, 5 is too much. Plus dont forget Fox played some DT too. Most vets want to sign before the draft, KK is seeing that now. No room with Brown, Nixon, Jones, FOx, and Roy. If two get IR'd then call KK.

Short is no longer athletic enough to rush the passer. Injuries and his butt having it's own zip code make the return of KK unlikely. Even so vet min would not be the end of the world. I love depth.

Assuming he is healthy enough to play at a high level I think he can do well as a rotational player where he doesn’t get a lot of reps to wear him down. Maybe he can also bring some leadership and teach our new guys how to be better. Nixon may take some time do develop so maybe we will be a lot better with short on the team.

So do we carry 5 DTs?  If not then what do you do with Nixon?

Kk was a good player when he had a run stuffer beside him. I would think that Derrick brown is just as good or better than Star was at eating space and taking double teams.  

I wouldnt be mad at a cheap 1 year deal. I would rather we focus on bringing in more competition and depth for the oline though.

    • I hope so and believe the current management is setting the team up for sustained success, but objectively speaking, it's hard to find a team in the modern NFL that competes perennially that doesn't have a true franchise QB. Injuries are too much of an unknown on otherwise good teams. A franchise QB can cover for a lot of other deficiencies... exhibit A was Cam in 2015 elevating the offense mostly on his own. I'm excited about this team and the culture Rhule is creating, but that alone can't elevate this team without an above-average to elite level QB play. Sam has surprised me by how well he has looked, but it's simply too small of a sample size to make any pronouncements. If anything, it may take the whole year. If Sam can be that guy, I certainly think Rhule can create a perennial contender. Otherwise it's back to drawing board again. But, I do think Rhule is smart enough to know all of this, hence why we got rid of Teddy so fast.  Nothing, not even great coaching and personnel, can ultimately substitute for a truly elite QB
    • Sam doesn't get enough credit for his accuracy, imo.    It's always "he sucks, he was on the Jets and sucked.  Did I mention he sucks?  Did I also mention I wanted Justin Fields? WAAAAH!" by the Peanut Gallery. Anyway, yeah.   Sam can make some plays on the run.    He also has to be careful in making sure that the person he's throwing to is wide open and not try to force it 'cause that's where he would get in trouble. He's already had 2 such passes (one in both the Jets and Saints game) where he was almost picked off because of that.    Sometimes the Hero Ball comes out of Sam....and he needs to learn that throwing the ball away and trying again in the Next down is wiser than rolling the dice....
