3 good reasons to sign ol # 87.

but I do think there are at least 3 reasons to sign Moose to a honorable and respectable one yr contract...those reasons being rookie WR LaFell, Edwards and Gettis! All three of these guys have the capacity to help the club next season and beyond.

I say keep 5 WR's on the roster with one guy floating back to the practice squad and let Moose do his thing as a player/mentor and/or qwazi player/coach with these rookie's!

In saying this I am also saying that IMO it is time to cut bait with D. Jarret...he can not accomplish what the Baylor rookie Gettis can---run the 40 in 4.37 seconds (89 gets what he wants a WR who can out run even him). I also think that this kids has more than what D. Carter had...not just speed but also a good start as overall WR skills...I do know that when the N team played Baylor this past season Gettis had the coaching staff very very concerned...he did have a good game, but not a great day...but than if I recall I think Suh and co. sacked the Baylor QB 8 times during the game...so there was no time for the deel ball...

Anyway some unconventional thinking from up here in the Heartlans...your thoughts????

I agree 1000%!!!  I felt like he should have been entitled to finishing his career here.  He wasn't horrible last year, plus we could use him for blocking purposes if nothing else.  Bring him back and let him tutor these guys on the route tree...who better to have do it?

not really sure what to think of the WRs yet.  IMO Moose is just to old.  He doesn't have the ability to get separation from anyone and its hard to justfy giving him a spot on the roster.  If all these guys flop in camp then sure, but IMO Moose is just too old.

I hear you here...and perhaps, with this player/mentor notion I am asking too much from a very proud 7 accomplished pro like 87 cuz I would suggest that 75% of 87's pay check be based out of the mentoring/coaching role...and IMO 87 would perhaps have to be the guy who sat out some games if the young gun rookie's proved to be quick learners...guess in asking Moose to come back in such a role...one would be asking him to persaonnal acknowledge and accept the fact that...yes...he is to old and a step to slow to contribute as much as a player...but he could offer much as a mentor/coach...and such would be a way for him to pass on his knowledge as well as earn a NFL style paycheck...cuz I really doubt any other clubs are going to sign him to their roster....like stated this is outside of the box thinking in trying to train up these super looking rookie WR's PDQ!!!!!

I would be okay with him coming in as a mentor but we are only alotted 53 man roster.  If he could play still then sure, but the Panthers don't look eager to keep anyone that is over 30 or expendable.
