Panthers free agent G Travelle Wharton recently mentioned that he’s contemplating his future in the NFL and is unsure if he’ll return next season.
“I don’t know what I’m going to do at this point. Still trying to figure it out,” Wharton said, via the Charlotte Observer. “Really taking inventory on my body, my mind, and just making sure it’s the right deal for me.
“I love it here in Charlotte. This is where we want to live,” Wharton said. “If there’s going to be a next year, we have to sit down and talk about it.”
Wharton, 32, is coming off of a great 2013 season in which Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 5 guard in the league.
The Panthers actually released him back in 2012, but Wharton returned to Carolina last year when he signed a one-year contract. Losing both Wharton and LT Jordan Gross would be a huge loss for the Panthers.
We have him listed as the No. 46 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
