2013 Carolina Panthers OTAs: Nate Chandler switching positions

USA TODAY Sports

Nate Chandler is turning in his DT shoes and taking on a new position in the team's first set of OTAs, and the position he's switching to is a bit...strange.

I guess we can file this one in the "things we never thought we'd see" department, but Nate Chandler is switching from DT to OT according to a tweet from Joe Person.

Um, ok...

So, I understand that the Panthers need an OT, but I don't think moving a guy from DT to OT is going to fill that void. Sure, Chandler played TE at UCLA, but wouldn't it be easier to just find an OT somewhere on the waiver wire?

Our very own James Dator weighs in on Twitter as to why he thinks the Panthers are making this move:

Yeah, it's kind of hard to disagree with that. But, if he played TE in college and we could use a backup TE, then why not just make Chandler a backup TE?

James gave his thoughts on that as well:

We all are James. We all are.

So, Panthers fans, what do you think about this strange move? Does this make any sense to you? Sound off in the comments!
