Armanti Edwards will enter camp as the biggest wild card on the team. On one hand, he has yet to do anything of significance since being drafted by Carolina in Round 3 of the 2010 NFL draft. On the other, he was praised by his coaches for making a lot of progress during OTAs.
However, it will be what he does during training camp and live game situations during the preseason that will ultimately determine Edwards' fate.
Much like teammate Gettis, Edwards will have battle new arrivals in Ginn Jr. and Hixon for a place on the roster. Unlike Gettis, Edwards' window to establish himself is getting smaller and smaller.
With Edwards having played his college ball at nearby Appalachian State, there are a good number of fans who want to see him do well with the Panthers. However, there are others who think that he was a wasted draft pick and needs to be released.
Edwards is the only one who can make his own destiny, and he will have to provide his coaches with enough reason to keep him on the roster for the 2013 season.
