“Delhomme’s days with Browns “are numbered?”’ Kalil wrote on Twitter. “Dear Marty Hurney, (slow chant) bring him back..bring him back..bring him back…BRING HIM BACK!”
He followed that note up a few minutes later with the following quote:
“‘We’ve got to talk about where we want to head as far as the veteran back up is concerned.’ – Ron Rivera #BringJakeBack”
The tweets reveal two things:
1. Kalil is a closet member of PFT Planet.
2. Delhomme would be welcomed back to the Panthers locker room with open arms.
“Kalil jokes around a lot,” Panthers beat writer in exile Darin Gantt wrote. “But if Delhomme was available, there would be a groundswell in the locker room to bring him back to Charlotte.”
It’s not that crazy a notion. The Panthers will be looking for a veteran that can help Cam Newton become a pro, not one that challenges for playing time. We suggested Chad Pennington before, but Delhomme makes even more sense.
