Panthers giving Amini Silatolu another shot

The Panthers have signed guard Amini Silatolu to a one-year deal.

It’s a reunion for the Silatolu and the Panthers, who drafted him in the second round in 2012. Silatolu started 28 games over four seasons for the Panthers but just 13 over his final three seasons as he battled a series of injuries.

The Panthers recently had Silatolu in for a workout and are hoping he can stay healthy and make the roster.

Silatolu signed with the Bears last year and went through training camp and the preseason before being released.

    As a close friend of the organization this is a move to vindicate the high draft pick the team used on Silatolu

    Thought I was done with this guy. Yes he was injury prone but he also wasn’t any good. He was a classic Hurney pick. Drafted him early in the second when Alshon Jeffrey was still available and we needed WR help. The deal probably isn’t costing us much but still, this guy gives me a headache…

    A typical Gettleman bargain basement type with a one year contract who is extremely njury prone and the Panthers do not need this type of nonsense. Gettleman is a an idiot who should be fired at the earliest possible opportunity.

    It looks like he sat out 2016 after coming off some serious injuries. Hopefully, he has had time to heal up and is ready to go. Also, Amini’s strength was run blocking when he played here. Maybe a sign we are going with Fournette or Cook with our first round pick?
