Note: To get to Rivera, skip past Florio's opening monologue and select Rivera from the following screen. ----- A few interesting notes: - There is no sure starter for QB going into the next season. - The team is more inclined to go for need with the #1 pick, but also won't reach. - Carolina will use the franchise tag. - Rivera dodged some questions (re-signing players before the CBA expires, Smith's future), saying that the team is evaluating its talent and opportunities. - He says that age and players having to play earlier than they probably should have played into the team's poor record. - We need to fill holes on offense & defense and get healthy in order to compete with Tampa Bay, New Orleans and Atlanta.
