Kugbila Added To IR

Ed Kugbila is waived/IR as of now, which suggests that if he clears
waivers, he'll go to injured reserve.

That opens a greater hole at RG, where Garry Williams may be competent
as a pass blocker but is only serviceable overall. The Travelle Wharton
signing might push Amini Silatolu into competing at RG during the
season, though he appears to be at least 2 weeks away from seeing the
field. The team may also pickup a veteran there.

Incumbent Geoff Hangartner, an early camp cut, remains out on the
market. Hangartner wasn't incredible, but he's solid depth. Otherwise,
the hope is they'd find someone with more push in the run game to back
Williams.


To update on Joe Adams, he's apparently been processed the same - not
outright cut. So Adams might have a chance on next year's roster after
all. Same appears to have gone for Frank Kearse. If each clear
waivers, that puts four on IR.

All would make it to next year's roster and compete on whatever that
'14 team would look like. You'd assume Cam Newton, Luke Kuechly, Steve
Smith, Greg Olsen, Charles Johnson, and most of the current rookies will
be on board, but at this point, anyone not included in the above list
(coach or player) might want to pick up the pace.
