Ramon Harewood worked out for Panthers, according to report

The Panthers still have needs on the offensive line and help could be on the way.

Ramon Harewood met with the Carolina Panthers for a workout, according to Adrian Wilson. The 26-year-old offensive tackle also met with the New York Giants.

Harewood is officially listed as an offensive tackle, but played last season at guard for the Baltimore Ravens. He started a total of five games at left guard and got snaps at right guard as needed. Harewood has excellent size at 6-foot-6, 330-pounds but has the same inherent problem many of Carolina's offensive linemen have -- he can't pass block.

In five starts Harewood allowed one sack, two hits and 12 (yes, TWELVE) quarterback hurries. He is a very capable run blocker, but his complete lack of awareness in pass protection is why he doesn't have a job right now. Harewood wouldn't be a bad rotational lineman, but it would be problematic if the Panthers are asking him to push for a starting role.

There is no indication that a contract was offered at this time, which probably relegates Harewood to tire kicking status. We'll update you if there are any new developments.
