Panthers GM Gettleman fired due to Norman leaving

It does make sense, Norman was the Panthers inspirational leader and the team looked like they lacked some inspiration at times without him. Their defensive backfield wa also a mess without him.

There had been rumblings that all was not well with Gettleman and owner Jerry Richardson stemming from allowing star CB Josh Norman to walk.

It was part of it. But obviously it came down to his refusal to resign aging vets on the roster this year.

The panthers in my eyes never acquired any high price free agents ever . Only know FA they've ever picked up that I could remember was Reggie White but that was like when he was out of his prime .


I understand the GM move for not wanting Norman because the panthers have a pretty good DL and linebackers to back things up so they probably felt they could go ahead and replace him with those type of backups .

Norman amazing tho I am very happy that we signed him .

Stephen Davis, maybe you heard of him? Spurrier thought he was expendable and cut him. He rushed for 1400 yards the year after Spurier cut him.

Kevin Greene, maybe you've heard of him? He just got inducted to the hall of fame.

Sam Mills, great mlb in the 90s who led the defense that got them to the nfccg in the 90s.

TE, Wesley Walls in the 90s. Started career as Brent Jones' back up in San Francisco same with Eric Davis & both played on San Fran's last super bowl team.

Michael Oher, Charles "Peanut" Tillman, Mike Tolbert. They traded with he Bears to get Greg Olsen and then a few years ago to get Jared Allen.
