Word is the San Diego chargers plan on cutting long time defensive end Luis Castillo from the team, to avoid paying him a 1 Million dollar roster bonus. He would carry around a 5 million dollar cap hit.
Should the Panthers pick him up? When he entered the league, he was viewed as an up and coming defensive lineman. However, he has an injury prone past, missing 6 weeks due to knee surgery in 2007 and breaking his leg in the opening game this past season.
There is also his past with PEDs. He tested positive for androstenedione, a steroid, during the 2005 combine, but he promised to pay back his entire rookie signing bonus if he ever tested positive in his career again, and he has since stayed clean.
Since he entered the league in 2005, he only racked up 210 tackles and 19 sacks. He's 28, and the Chargers only seem to be interested in keeping him only if he is cheap. What do you all think? Should the Panthers take a chance on this guy, hoping that he adds to the team's pass rush?
