According to Joseph Person and Steve Reed, the Panthers have signed former Panther Geoff Hangartner. The 29 year old Texas A&M product played for Buffalo the last 2 years, starting 16 games and 12 games respectively. Hangartner can play either Center or Guard. This move should make Guard a position of strength for us after we also signed Max Jean-Gilles yesterday. Hangartner is smaller than MJG at 295 lbs, but is also taller at 6'5" I am sure that Cam is excited about this. As well as double trouble.
Courtesy of the brains at ESPN, here is the scouting report on him:
Hangartner has good size but average strength and athleticism. He is a tough, hard-nosed player with great instincts and technique. He understands angles and how to leverage larger defenders in the run game. He shows good vision to adjust to stunts and twists in pass protection. He can lose some one-on-one battles. He needs help from the guard spots and is best on combination blocks.
