Antoine Cason isn't apparently a Panther, yet. The local media got this
one right, in which a portion of the national media said there was an
agreement, but the locals had him visiting.
In a move that had Virginia OT Morgan Moses (a good possible choice for
Carolina at 28) postponing his visit to Mint St, Cason was expected to
visit but switched to agent Drew Rosenhaus somewhere along the way, so
Carolina didn't meet with anyone.
I have some confidence that a deal will get done, but Rosenhaus is
clearly not the easiest guy to deal with at times, either. Hopefully,
all sides will see this for what it is, Cason will quickly sign for a
limited amount of money, and maybe Drew will cut us a break on Greg
Hardy, while we're asking for miracles already.
So Cam Newton's having ankle surgery?
I understand the alarm. It seems minor, and I'm gonna have to trust
that. ESPN has this article (as you can tell by the margins I'm sending
this in, not on blogger's dashboard, so the formatting and the link are
It makes some sense this is tied to the high ankle sprain. And he had
some issues last year with it, too. The impact should be somewhat
minimal, and I'm interested to see how Derek Anderson does with more
reps in the offseason, regarding the new receivers.
Either way, they say surgery went fine. And this isn't like there was
microfracture on a heavily worn, 35 year old knee. It's adjustment of
the ankle that's bothered him. Nothing catastrophic, so no worries.
