Panthers sign running back Fozzy Whittaker

RB-Fozzy-Whittaker-AP-Photo-by-Cleveland-Browns AP

Though it sounds strange to see given their track record, the Panthers found themselves short at running back.

So they solved that problem for the moment by bringing in former Browns running back/return man Fozzy Whittaker. (Waka! Waka!).

The Panthers had an immediate need with Jonathan Stewart on the shelf with a hamstring and sixth-round pick Tyler Gaffney going on injured reserve with a knee injury.

Whittaker has some return ability, but has been looking for work since the Browns cut him in May.

    The Muppet Babies solution to any conceivable problem:

    Who is this chump? Training camp fodder? The Panthers are turning into a pathetic organization who only seem to be able to sign stiffs and scrubs and the mile long list of players on IR has already begun even though they haven’t played a down of competitive football. Again, as we all know, Gettleman has a plan….to implode a 12-4 football team to a fourth place 4-12 team. Go figure!

    2012 was the saints fluke season. 2013’s fluke belongs to the panthers.

    Congratulations to the Carolina Panthers and their fans on signing Fozzy Whitaker.

    DID YOU KNOW: Running Back/Kick Returner Fozzy Whitaker was the 2013 Cleveland Browns #4 wide receiver (after headcase josh gordon, terrible Greg Little, and troubled Davone Bess).

    It was ALLLLLLLLLLL Brandon Weeden’s fault.

    A human tackling dummy for preseason games.

    I have a sneaky suspicion that doctorrustbelt is Brandon Weeden. Weeden is horrible and it was all his fault.
