Today's the day that all the free agent moves that have been made become official, so there should be no shortage of news throughout the day. Hopefully all the Panthers deals go through without a hitch and we can start looking forward to what these guys are going to do on the field.
Let's start the day off with some free-flowing conversations, Panthers fans!
News and notes from the past few days:
- In what can only be described as an emotional move, it appears that K John Kasay will be released today. Apparently the front office told him they were going to go in another direction, thus explaining the signing of Olindo Mare on Wednesday.
- The Panthers have released their official training camp schedule. You can find it here.
- Second year DE Greg Hardy was involved in a motorcycle accident last week in Tennessee. While he's not seriously injured, he will have to miss the first two weeks of training camp. You can read the Charlotte Observer's account of the story here.
- The Panthers have decided not to trade WR Steve Smith, and Smitty has said that he wants "to remain a Panther for life". I for one couldn't be happier! Details about this can be found here.
- The Panthers have agreed to a 1-year contract with former Eagles and Jaguars S Sean Considine. Read more about it here.
- The Panthers have traded with the Bears for TE Greg Olsen. Read about this trade here.
