The Panthers were awarded ex-Lions FB Jerome Felton (6-0, 246, 4.66-40) tonight, though the Eagles and Vikings also put in a waiver claim, according to Rotoworld. Felton played college ball at Furman, his 2011 salary is $1.2 million, and he will be a free agant in 2012. They said Felton might be a shightly better blocker than Tony F., but they were puzzled by the pickup as well.
Could it be that Tony Fiammetta's concussion problem might be much worse than the Panthers have said, and that he might need to go on IR?
In 3 seasons with the Lions Felton had 39 carriers, and 30 catches, so he might also provide a little more offensive production than Fiammetta, but at around double the price.
