So that’s it…Barring any changes beyond today, Carolina’s 53-man roster is set.
Panthers are young and home-grown. 35 of their 53 were draft picks, including 18 starters. That’s the plan Hurney’s always talking about. –Darin Gantt, Charlotte Observer
In his conference call with the media, Panthers general manager Marty Hurney stated that wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett showed more of what they had been looking for in being a more consistent receiver. He also stated that defensive tackle Andre Neblett surprised them, always making something happen when he was on the field.
The team also decided to go with Tony Pike as the No. 3 quarterback, given he is able to move out of the pocket, and has tools to succeed in the future.
