One of the outstanding aspects of Twitter is that players can break their own news.
Panthers safety Chris Harris had a scoop Monday for OCNN to envy, saying that long-time Panthers fullback Brad Hoover was cut.
“Well we just had
another because your 30 casualty on the panthers roster. Brad Hoover you
will be missed my man,” Harris wrote.
We haven’t received confirmation on the release yet, but it appears that Hoover is gone. Veterans like Harris are starting to wonder what’s going on in Carolina.
“Makes me think?
What is our number 1 priority this season,” Harris said. “I know what mine is.“
It’s a weird time in Carolina. The coach looks unlikely to be back in 2011 and the team is slashing salary. Harris wisely realized he shouldn’t write much more.
“If I state my
opinion I might be the next on the long list of released players,” Harris said.
