Carolina Panthers general manager relieved of his duties


The stunning news that G.M. Dave Gettleman has been relieved of his duties after four years, three playoff appearances, and a Super Bowl leads to an obvious question: What the hell do they do next?

Last April, Dave Gettleman was a part of a very surprising National Football League offseason move, as the Panthers GM chose to take the franchise tag off of Josh Norman and let the in-his-prime corner hit the free agent market. Carolina will now attempt to find another GM with training camp barely a week away.

The Carolina Panthers have fired general manager Dave Gettleman effective immediately, the team announced Monday.

This is obviously surprising news for a franchise that's been one of the NFC's most consistent over the past few years. In October 2014, during his first season with the Ravens, he told a Charlotte radio station that Gettleman told him "basically that I'm a shadow of the player I used to be - I can't run and jump like I used to, I'm jealous of Cam [Newton]". "While the timing of this decision is not ideal, a change is needed".

The Panthers join the Bills, Chiefs and Redskins as those who opted to part ways with their GMs after the draft. Beane would have been a natural choice to take Gettleman's place, but Carolina will have to go in another direction now. Josh Norman and Steve Smith, who also left Carolina with a bad taste in their mouths, tweeted their approval as well, Norman via emojis and Smith with a taunting photo.

Williams signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers ahead of the 2015 season, racking up a combined 1,250 yards and 15 TDs before being released this past off-season. The Broncos, and 2007 and 2011 Giants won the championship.
