2013 Carolina Panthers Training Camp: Day 6 Twitter Recap

New, comments

Let's take a look at Twitter and see how today's practice went.

Another day of practice is in the books, even though there was a slight delay due to inclement weather. Thankfully, the team was able to get an entire practice session in.

Geoff Hangartner released

There are always veteran cuts in training camps. By now everyone realizes it's just part of the business. Today the Panthers somewhat surprisingly parted ways with veteran OG Geoff Hangartner:

While many fans have speculated that this means the Panthers are going to sign Travelle Wharton, head coach Ron Rivera has stated that the team doesn't plan on signing a veteran replacement.

According to reports, Garry Williams moves into the starting RG spot.

Rivera admits that cutting Hangartner with an untested rookie is a risk, but he's also confident in Williams' ability to step in and play.

Rivera also wanted to cut Hangartner early to give him a chance to catch on somewhere else:

That was a nice gesture, I suppose.

Secondary competition still "open"

According to Rivera, the competition for the starting secondary spots is still open, but Joe Person sees it differently:

We'll have to keep an eye on the secondary, but don't be surprised if that group of four is the starting unit.

Armanti making an impression at WR

I know, I know - he has a reputation for shining in camp. At least the coaches are noticing this time.

If he keeps playing the way he has so far in camp, he's going to push someone else off the roster. If I were Gettis or Pilares, I would start worrying.

Miscellaneous Notes

Haruki Nakamura and Kenjon Barner exchanged words after Nakamura made a tackle that Barner didn't appreciate.

Personally I find that story hard to believe. I mean, Nakamura making a play? Come on, that can't be true.

And finally, here's Cam with the quote of the day:

But everyone likes thighs Cam. At least, most everyone does.

Well, that's it for today's Twitter recap. We'll be back tomorrow after practice with another post highlighting the day's events. As always stay tuned to CSR for more updates from Spartanburg.
