IMO this move marks...
THE OFFICIAL END OF THE OFFSEASON AND THE OFFICIAL BEGINNING OF THE 2012-13 Summer Training Camp season

There are Panthers observers wondering how much more patience the team will show Jeff Otah.
Otah — a former first-round pick entering the final year of his rookie contract — showed he could be a mauling right tackle early in his career, but not recently. He hasn't stayed healthy, missing 35 games in his four seasons and appearing in only four games in the past two seasons. While swelling in his left knee sidelined him earlier this month, the Panthers are expecting him to be ready to play when training camp begins. Head coach Ron Rivera has made Otah no guarantees as far as a starting job, though, while praising the performance of Byron Bell, who started 12 games at right tackle while Otah was out last season.
The Panthers would be thrilled to see Otah put doubts about his work ethic and durability to rest in camp, but there are some inside the organization who are not overly optimistic about his chances of returning to the promising form he once displayed.
Healthy Otah = Home run move
Is his salary guaranteed? If he's not healthy, what are the risks here? We lost a conditional pick, which I would bet is dependent on Otah making the roster and/or playing.
Didn't want to make a new thread...
G Terrence Campbell, LB Demario Davis, S LaRon Landry and WR Jordan White were placed on active PUP, the team announces. #nyj
that training camp PUP means they don't count on the 90 man roster until they are activated from it. Much different from the second PUP that requires you sit out until week 6
means they don't have to make any roster move for the addition of Otoh
Sorry, can't resist...
The Pig is Ripe, etc., etc., etc.
We can be concerned about the fact that he's been injury plagued and that the Panthers gave him up for peanuts, but there's literally nothing to dislike about this move.
Someone made a McKinnie comparison - this move has the potential to be just that.
Love the pickup.. If healthy is one of the better RT in football.
