Matt Flynn Hopes His NFL Travels End In Oakland

Lance Moore is one of those players that understands what it means to pay your dues in the world of professional football. Now, after eight years in the league, he is going to be a starting wide received for the New Orleans Saints, and it is totally deserved.

Fullback Mike Tolbert Left Money On The Table Just To Play For The Panthers

You can call him short, stout or thick, but one thing you can’t say about Mike Tolbert is that he is greedy. The Coastal Carolina University standout reportedly left more than $1 million behind in San Diego when he signed with the Panthers as a free agent, and he could be one of the most underrated players on the team.

Thomas Davis Won’t Win Comeback Player, But Panthers Just Happy He Came Back

On the field, Thomas Davis stares down the opposition, but off it the Panthers’ linebacker has had to stare down something much scarier: the surgeon’s knife.

Despite Panthers’ Record, Dwan Edwards Has Been A Key Addition To Resurgent Defense

The Panthers are 1-6 but you cannot blame defensive end Dwan Edwards who has been everything – and more – since being picked up before the start of the season. Having already set a personal best in sacks, Edwards is just one behind team leader Charles Johnson in that department.

Despite Concerns Over Newborn Son, Panthers’ Tight End Greg Olsen Still Playing At High Level

Years from now few people will remember who brought tight end Greg Olsen to Charlotte to play for the Panthers. The new father of twins should be around for a number of years but the man who was instrumental in his acquisition will be watching him from afar.

Still Limping Through Season, Running Back Jonathan Stewart Remains A Key To Panthers’ Success

Bit by the injury bug so far this season, Jonathan Stewart remains a big part of the Panthers present and future. Carolina needs him to be in the lineup if they have any hope of turning around their dismal 1-4 start.
