The New York Jets attempt to get a right tackle to possibly start over Wayne Hunter failed as Jeff Otah was unable to pass his physical sending him back to the Carolina Panthers.
General Manager Mike Tannenbaum said "He did everything we asked for the past week and the terms of the trade weren't met so he's going back to Carolina,"
This is sad news for Otah as the former first round pick has had lots of injury problems barely playing in the last few years, and doesn’t appear to be ready to anytime soon.
For the Jets they cant be satisfied going into the season with Wayne Hunter as the starter, and Tannenbaum will probably be back out looking for another right tackle to compete for starting job with Hunter.

Cam Newton exceeded all expectations last year, especially mine. Coming out of Auburn I was not expecting Cam Newton to be able to adapt to the NFL game. Watching his interview with Coach John Gruden, when he could not name a single play, I thought he was going to fail.
I have no problem admitting I was wrong. Cam Newton exploded onto the scene and became a superstar in the...

Running Backs: DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, Tauren Poole

Spartanburg, SC – The Carolina Panthers worked out in the rain this morning. But the big story of the day was that Jeff Otah, the injury-plagued offensive tackle is returning to the team after his trade to the New York Jets was voided when Otah failed his physical with New York.
Jeff Otah’s return to the Panthers could be awkward

Wide receiver Brandon LaFell says he's ready for a bigger role with the Carolina Panthers.
And he'll get it this year.
LaFell enters his third season as the Panthers' No. 2 receiver and will start alongside five-time Pro Bowler Steve Smith.
LaFell started six games at the end of last year and played well but knows this is no time to relax. The Panthers (No. 20 in the...
Defensive tackle Ron Edwards arrived at Carolina Panthers training camp with one thing on his mind: ''I just wanted to hit something.''
You can't blame him.
Edwards' first season in Carolina lasted all of about two-and-a-half hours. He tore his triceps in Carolina's first training camp practice last summer. The Panthers quickly placed him on injured...
Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson said center Ryan Kalil's prediction of a Super Bowl victory this season was ''pretty cool.''
Kalil took out a full-page advertisement in The Charlotte Observer last week guaranteeing Carolina fans would be rewarded for their unwavering support with the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Richardson made a similar prediction when the...
The defensive backs struggled last season. To their credit, however, the front seven struggled to pressure the quarterback, leaving opposing receivers more time to get open. Despite criticism, Chris Gamble has been a solid number one option at cornerback for the Panthers. Captain Munnerlyn is an excellent option at nickelback, but lacks the size to be a solid number two option...
General manager Marty Hurney said the Carolina Panthers are waiting for the results of a physical exam on offensive tackle Jeff Otah before making a decision on the future of the team's former first-round draft pick.
Carolina traded Otah to the New York Jets last week, but the deal was rescinded after Otah failed his physical. He reverted back to the Panthers' roster.
The dog days of training camp are upon us and the heat of Spartanburg, S.C. is taking it's toll on the players of the Carolina Panthers slowly, but surely.
The Panthers have been at it since Saturday, July 28, and some players have begun to leave their mark on the fields of Wofford College where the Panthers have practiced since the franchise was founded in 1995.
SPARTANBURG, SC -- To say there's plenty of competition in the Carolina Panthers' training camp at wide receiver would be an understatement.
Holdovers such as Brandon LaFell, Armanti Edwards, David Gettis, Darvin Adams and Kealoha Pilares are vying to make the team in some cases and to raise their performance to possibly complement star veteran Steve Smith in another. Newcomers...
