Carolina Panthers release Chris Ogbonnaya posted on 11/05/2014

Earlier this week, the Carolina Panthers released running back Chris Ogbonnaya, before they take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10.

The Panthers had a slew of injuries at running back and signed Ogbonnaya to help fill out their roster, although Ogbonnaya’s role was merely reserve in nature as he only had 15 touches for a net of 50 yards with one touchdown.

It was clear that he was never going to rise up on the depth chart and was merely a bandage solution until other injuries healed up and returned to active status, and now with DeAngelo Williams fully recovered and back in action, Ogbonnaya became merely extra weight.

On the surface not much will change for the Panthers. Jonathan Stewart has been running the ball well and with purpose and DeAngelo Williams quickly showed he’s back to his old (healthy) self on Thursday night against the Saints with a nice 30 yard run.

Can the Carolina Panthers make a run to the Superbowl in 2014? posted on 09/28/2014

The Panthers finished last season with a 12-4 record but would be hard pressed to match the record and even get into the playoffs once again. The team lost a lot of key pieces like wide receivers Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell, and Ted Ginn. In their place are Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant which are pedestrian replacements, and first round pick Kelvin Benjamin who would take time to develop.

Quarterback Cam Newton will also have to deal with a depleted offensive line with the retirement of left tackle Jordan Gross. Center Ryan Kalil will be back for the team, though.

The running backs would also suffer with a weak front, and it does not help that DeAngelo Williams turned 31 in April. Williams was good for 4.2 yards per carry last season.

It’s a shame given that Newton is coming off his strongest performance as a pro last year. He had a career high of 61.7 completion percentage and passed for 3,379 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2013, leading the Panthers to an impressive 12-4 record.
