Should the Panthers make a move to claim Randy Moss off waivers?

Whether or not the Minnesota Vikings do end up placing Randy Moss on waivers, the possible moves have plenty of teams discussing whether or not they should make a move to claim him—and one of those teams who should considering the move is the Carolina Panthers.

At 1-5, the Panthers only sit behind the Buffalo Bills on the waiver list this week and own the league’s 30th ranked passing game, averaging just 165.9 yards per game through the air. While their main issue on offense is at quarterback, Carolina could use an experienced like Moss.

Other than Steve Smith, the next best wideouts for the Panthers are David Gettis and Brandon LaFell—both rookies. The addition of a player who poses as much of a threat as Moss would be beneficial to Smith—who has yet to cross 100+ receiving yards this season—and the rest of Carolina’s passing game.

Of course, if this happens, the Panthers would have to pay the $3.88 million still owed to Moss for the rest of the 2010 season. While it seems unlikely he’ll want to play for a team like the Panthers in 2011, it may not be a bad idea for Carolina to consider.

Who knows—maybe adding a player like Moss is just what the Panthers need to get some consistency flowing on offense.

Watch Panthers' OT Michael Oher Slide On Levi's Stadium Turf

Watch Cam Newton Put His Own Interests Above The Team

Millions of things have been said about Cam Newton, but this one instance in particular fires me up as a Carolina Panthers fan. With the score 16-10 Broncos, Von Miller knocks the ball out of Newton's hands which leads to a mad scramble. Newton has the opportunity to jump on the ball in the pile, but he decides to back away to protect himself from injury. In a one-possession game in the Super Bowl, Newton should've sacrificed every limb he has to get that ball back for his team, and it's extremely unnerving to me as a fan that he didn't jump in there.
