Following on from my last article regarding the five Carolina Panthers who need to step up this coming season comes this article, dealing with some Panthers who most would consider to be merely afterthoughts on the team.
They are merely backup players with only a small shot of contributing, right?
As the inimitable Lee Corso would say, “Not so fast, my friend.”
The National Football League, perhaps more than any other sports league, is a next man up organization. Injuries happen every single time players step onto the gridiron—some simply cuts and bruises, some more severe, and for the unlucky few, some career-threatening.
Players like the five I am about to discuss are only a play away from being thrust into the action, and they have to be ready at a moment’s notice.
So who are the five “under the radar” players on the Panthers’ roster in 2010?
