Panthers' Jyles Tucker leaves camp due to (not enough) weight problem
The Panthers have terminated the contract of DE/OLB Jyles Tucker because he showed up to camp too thin. Listed at 255, Tucker weighs under 230.
Dude, you're an NFL player, time to start eating like one.
Heck, with the humidity we've been having he might have dropped that 25 lbs during an afternoon practice
Hurney is apparently saying the Panthers may bring him back if he packs on the pounds, but as he didn't play last year either, I suspect he may be finished. Saw lots of comments on the website clamoring for them to forget Tucker and bring back Shockey, though last time I checked Shockey was still a TE and might not be of much help to the lowly defense.
You know, I'd be OK with someone telling me they'd pay me lots of money if I gained 25 lbs.
Then you need to apply for a job as either an NFL lineman or Santa Claus.
