The Panthers signed free-agent running back C.J. Anderson to a contract, the team announced Monday on Twitter. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
With Jonathan Stewart joining the Giants on a two-year deal during free agency, Anderson’s arrival bolsters a Panthers’ running back group consisting of second-year pro Christian McCaffrey, Fozzy Whittaker and Cameron Artis-Payne.
Maybe I’ll need an umbrella, Kelly told the Boston Globe. I hope nothing gets thrown or poured on us.
The Titans released Griffin in February 2016 when he was tied with Corey Graham of Buffalo for the most games played by a safety in the NFL between 2007 and 2015. Griffin signed with Minnesota but didn’t play a game. He then signed with Carolina and started six of 13 games with the Panthers in 2016. He finished his career starting 134 of 154 games played in 10 seasons. Griffin spent the 2017 season working out in case a team called and finished his degree at Texas. He said even when he was with the Vikings and Panthers he always felt he remained a Tennessee Titan.
Accorsi also picked John Elway with the No. 1 pick in 1983. It seems he is one of the people who helped steer Gettleman away from this class of quarterbacks, even using the same grade on a curve analogy as his protege.
The Giants drafted Kyle Lauletta in the fourth round.
I’m a quarterback guy, Accorsi said. I’ve always felt if you pick a quarterback that high — not in the fourth or fifth round — he can’t have a minus. There are boxes of critical factors. Some of them are intangible and some are just feel on your part. There has to be a plus or plus-plus in every box. If there is a minus, you are asking for trouble.
In March, Goodell was asked about Reid, one of the better players at his position in the NFL, not having a job. I’ve said this repeatedly to you: The 32 teams make individual decisions on the players who are going to best help their franchises, Goodell said. Those are decisions they have to make. They do that every day in the best interest of winning. Teams make those decisions. I’m not directly involved with that. Last month, Kaepernick praised Reid for continuing to make a stand for social justice when the quarterback was presented an Amnesty International award in Amsterdam.
