Irvin's signing official; two released

As expected, the Panthers have announced the signing of third-round pick Corvey Irvin, a defensive tackle. Official word of second-round pick Everette Brown's signing hasn't come yet, but likely is just a formality.

The Panthers announced the release of defensive tackle Justin Kershaw and safety Anthony Scirroto to make room for two new signings.

Still pending is a deal with second-round pick Sherrod Martin, a cornerback. That is expected to be completed before training camp opens Sunday.

Still a little thin at DT

I agree about DT being thin. Is Irvin expected to be a contributor this year, or is he for down the road?

Is it just me or does Stan Olson look like an overweight crack baby?

Look at that picture of Stan Olson. He couldnt be happier there sandwiched between two guys.

pjscollegefund - whoever you are, don't even start with that Vick b.s. It's very appropriate that you have his name and the work 'BUMS' in the same sentence. Thankfully the Panthers have enough class that they would NEVER consider a thug like him. He's a brainless, soul-less LOSER, and as a Panther fan, I don't ever want to be stuck with having to look at him or hearing his name. Hope he goes to a big city market where they'll chew him up and spit him out, like the crap that he is.

TP, they're expecting him to step up and be ready to play some decent snaps as the #3 DT, and, best case scenario, he'll be pushing one of the incumbents for a starting spot by the end of the year.

pjscollegefund: What the heck are you talking about.Vick is a darn good ball player that made a mistake and has paid for it. You are not so far up your own *** that you haven't made any mistakes and after you made them noone said that your life was over. The man should be given a chance to redeem himself and rebuild his life. As ignorant as you sound, I'm sure that someone has had to give you another chance at some point.

Has anyone here seen the other post about Irvin's contract? There were no negative comments so far, what happened here? The other post is so pleasant to read.

One mistake does not last an entire lifetime. Geez people, he's done his sentence get off your high horse already and move on.

I'm kinda on the fence with the Vick thing. But I will tell you this, before he got in trouble, Atlanta was the one team I always dreaded playing in the south. I know what you're all thinking, he's not the same ball player as before. I think with Dungy as his mentor, he's gonna make some NFL team very happy.

VICK, VICK, VICK, VICK.... do it hurney, what has class, loyalty and character done for you in the first 14 years? might as well sell out one time and see if it works. delhomme is overpaid, mediocrity.

NO VICK NO VICK ,he is a coach killing greasefire who can't play QB. He is not worth the $ because 10 snaps a game.also the baggage. Unless he wants to play WR and we are good there.
