Morning highlights as players leave
A few highlights from interviews with Panthers players as they were leaving Bank of America Stadium on a truly cold, cold morning (temps in low 20s):
-- Defensive end Julius Peppers said he felt better about the system he played in this year, but he said he'd need a couple of days to gather his thoughts about his future. He wouldn't say whether or not he wants to be back with the team next year. He indicated he'd have more to say in "a couple of days."
-- Quarterback Jake Delhomme wants to and expects to be back next year, but said he hasn't been told anything specific. He said he's at peace with whatever happens. He acknowledged that he pressed at times this season.
-- Quarterback Matt Moore said he'd have no problem if he, as expected, he and Delhomme are back on the roster again next season. He said they both just want to win.
-- Offensive tackle Jordan Gross said he he'll be off crutches in one week and that his broken leg should be healed soon, but that he expects the medical staff to be careful about his activities once spring and summer camps open. He said he has no doubt he'll be ready for the start of next season.
More to come.

Good to hear about Gross, and hopefully Moore will be our starter next season, he has earned that. Getting Jarrett to catch a TD pass should have gotten him the nod as much as anything!
