Inside the Panthers: Panthers bringing back Hangartner
Veteran guard/center Geoff Hangartner is scheduled to fly to Charlotte on Tuesday to take a physical with the Panthers, a source close to Hangartner said Monday. If Hangartner passes the physical, he'll sign with the team.
'Piggy' as he has been called is a very heady player was a surprise cut in the preseason. He brings a veteran presence though he is on the downside of his career obviously. The Panthers had wanted to get younger and stronger at the RG position but at this point I';m sure they just want someone they can count on to make the right blocks.
Hangartner is just a half-season stop gap at the position but I think he will be good enough to keep the offense on track. He will not require must prepping and should step right in provided he has stayed in shape.
