Default Panthers release Geoff Hangartner

he used to play for Broncos coach John Fox and offensive line coach Dave Magazu when the two men were with the Panthers. The team has added Ryan Lilja in the wake of Dan Koppen’s torn ACL, but they may be looking for other options at center and familiarity with Hangartner could lead to his name popping up in Denver.

Released by Panthers. Possibly another center option?

The Broncos are weak at a position that an adequate player will suffice. I have no doubt they will have a player that will work nicely at the center position before the season starts. This is a non issue

I agree with what I was hearing on Les & Tom last night.

Nalen was talking about how it's not an issue of getting a great lineman as much as it is getting someone who Peyton is comfortable with. Peyton is comfortable with Lilja... besides, C is mostly used as a supplemental blocker. Along with QB, it might be the most important smarts position, but least important talent position.

I'm adding in the durability factor. Lilja being retired and coming off surgeries. Hangartner can play guard as well.

Good call Med. Usually if a team releases a player this early it probably means he was a good soldier but the organization wants to go in a different direction and give him some time to catch on to somewhere else. It could also mean he was really bad, though.

Calls like this is what makes Med so valuable to this board.
