I just read at RotoWorld.com that the Panthers have cut backup SS Jermale Hines (6-1, 219, a Combine 4.68-40, a Pro Day 4.55-40), the 5th round pick of the Rams this year, who the Panthers claimed earlier this season off waivers. It wasn't announced that anyone has been signed to take his place on the 53 man roster.
A little later RotoWorld reported that GM Marty Hurney hinted that RB Mike Goodson may be placed on IR as early as Wednesday, because of his injured hamstring.
They could have waived SS Jermale Hines just a few days ago, and S Keamemana "Mana" Silva (6-1, 208, a Pro Day 4.41-40, 40 inch vertical) was available, or they could have signed CB/S Akwasi Owusu-Ansah (6-0, 207, a Combine 4.47-40, a Pro Day 4.30-40) off the Cowboys Practice Squad. However, when the Cowboys signed him off their Practice Squad before Sunday's game he was listed as a WR, so maybe he can't cover (a wasted 4th round pick?).
Do they need the roster space to add extra LB's?
I would like to see them sign LB Phillip Dillard (6-0, 245, a Combine 4.64-40, a Pro Day 4.53-40) off the Practice Squad.
What do you think is up with the roster moves?
