Ryan Kalil is not the leaker in the Panthers locker room

The Panthers need for a left tackle is well-established, and they figure to keep close tabs on the entire market.

But blood is thicker than the water in the deep end of the free agent pool.

After Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network mentioned that some Panthers players were lobbying soon-to-be free agent left tackle Russell Okung, one of the them had a succinct answer.

Of course, Kalil’s little brother Matt is also on their list of targets and has been for some time, and is likely the more realistic of the two for a few reasons.

Okung can’t participate in the legal tampering period which begins tomorrow since he doesn’t have an agent. And that doesn’t preclude players from contacting him, but the front office can’t.

And since Okung is available and fills an obvious need, there’s no reason to suggest Rapoport’s sources aren’t correct on this one. I mean, it’s not like he tried to include them in a three-way trade or anything.

    Wasn’t Rapoport the same guy who reported that there was a chance that the Cowboys, Niners, and Redskins were working on a three way trade between Romo, Cousins, and Ming the Merciless?

    That was probably credible source. It’s likely a leak from Redskins VP Bruce Allen. From the looks of it he’s been trying to cut ties with their GM McCloughan. The skins are in disarray right now and he was probably hoping it would serve as a distraction to the fact his team’s best talent evaluator skipped the combine.

    Ryan is getting old, but not to the stage of incontinence.

    Would Ryan add a clause in his contract that if Cam got knocked on his keezer 10 times next season , he (Ryan) would take a 40% pay cut?

    Is he flipping the bird in this picture? If so will the NFL fine him?

    Flashing a peace sign with one hand, flipping the bird with the other. A man for all occasions.

    IKR? I avoided this article at first because I was not sure what I was about to read.

    I’m not sure about Okung; why did he fail in Denver so spectacularly? But even he and little Kalil are better than Remmers at LT……
