Even at a time when offseason rosters have swollen to 90 players, teams are still trying to look at more guys than that limit entails.
Thus, they’re dragging in veterans on a tryout basis along with more undrafted rookies for their rookie minicamps.
The Panthers are no different, as they’ve announced a list of 35 tryout players, which includes a number of familiar names.
Former Buccaneers safety Cody Grimm is on the list, along with fullbacks Dorin Dickerson and Harvey Unga, along with former Packers second-round pick Pat Lee and former Bills punter Shawn Powell.
It’s amazing Grimm’s only now getting here, given all the Redskins ties to the organization. Maybe it was the fact his father Russ kept getting mentioned as a head coaching candidate when he really wasn’t that kept him away this long.
