Otah Traded Away; Gettis to PUP

In a pair of moves to go with the Murphy trade, Carolina has traded away former 2008 1st rounder Jeff Otah to the New York Jets.

Otah is clearly the most disappointing 1st rounder of the Marty Hurney era, with the 1st rounders from 2003-2007 still on roster (and had they had their way, the one from 2002 as well).  Unable to make it on the field for the last 28 of 32 games, Otah was just someone Carolina staffers had determined wasn't worth the time anymore.  The oversize tackle was a force in 2008, but struggled essentially since.

David Gettis, who had a solid 2010 as a rookie with 37 receptions for 508 yards and a team leading 3 TD receptions, was placed on the PUP list.  Gettis missed 2011 with a torn ACL, which happened near the onset of camp last year.  There's no word on how he's doing; some suggest it's procedural, but it's not the best sign that he's not going to start camp on the active roster.
