Beason: Going young not bad thing

In his latest blog, Panthers linebacker Jon Beason provides personal insight into the Panthers recent roster moves, including the release of veteran teammates he greatly respected.

He noted that while 30-year-old Steve Smith is now the team's oldest position player, "going young is not necessarily a bad thing."

"I'm sure it's all part of a master plan, and I have  faith in Coach Fox and everything else in the organization who is involved in the decision-making process."

Beason wrote extensively about his respect for former quarterback Jake Delhomme, who's visiting with the New Orleans Saints this weekend as he moves on to the next phase of his career.

"Jake is a warrior, a competitor," wrote Beason. "One thing I always appreciated about Jake was that he was honest and genuinely wanted to win. Every snap, every day in practice, whether he was rehabbing an injury or preparing to win on Sundays, he always had the same philosophy. Jake always gave it everything he had, he played with guts and played with his heart on his sleeve."

Well said Beast. Imagine if a guy like Julius Peppers, who is ridiculously athletic, played with half the heart, passion and fire as Jake.

Great another reference to a former player. I was wondering when I could be expecting more on what people think of Jake. Thanks Charles you made my day!:)

There is NO OTHER PANTHER news - so geez stop complaining about the Jake articles. It is Jake articles - or nothing. Which would you prefer?

It so hard to see the new changes but the panthers need to go out an get a big time wide receiver like T.O or Brandon Marshall to help steve smith

No, I just wish had played with half the ability of Julius Peppers. Pep just got tired from all the 3 downs and out.
