  1. Dang it! The Panthers are getting a future star with this signing. I was hoping the Vikings would be able to keep him to replace Griffen.

  2. Well that sucks I thought we were going to keep him with Everson Griffin leaving. We go from three top tier DE’s to one, and now we probably have to draft one again. Ugh! Weatherly was going to be our next rising star after Griffin left. WTF!
