Kenjon Barner To Reunite With Former Head Coach Chip Kelly

The Carolina Panthers must be really sure of themselves at the running back position because they just traded Kenjon Barner to the Philadelphia Eagles for a conditional seventh-round pick in next year’s draft. Barner who was buried behind Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert on the depth chart might not have made the 53-man roster.  In Philly, Barner likely assumes...

Carolina Panthers’ Tolbert sheds pounds, retains toughness

There’s no question Mike Tolbert is well-known around the league for his size. At 5-foot-9 and 250 pounds, Tolbert is a goal-line terror for defenses and a wrecking ball at fullback for the Carolina Panthers. He has nicknames like “Toldozer,” “Fat Boy” and “Tub of Goo.” But after an offseason of training on the West Coast, Tolbert has shed 13 pounds and said Sunday...

Draft day value: Mike Tolbert and Justin Hunter vie for FSLR's ultimate sleeper title

When taking a look at all the late, late, late, late round running backs available, the one thing Tolbert has going for him is his defined role in Carolina’s offense as the team’s goal line...

Mike Tolbert Prefers to Run in a Straight Line--So Get Out of the Way!

Carolina Panthers fullback has been one of my favorite players all season.

FB Tolbert's versatility paying off for Panthers

Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert is used to defenders underestimating him when he has the ball in his hands. He's hoping they continue to overlook him. The squatty 5-foot-9, 245-pound Tolbert doesn't look like he'd be tough to tackle or is particularly fast. Tolbert's low center of gravity and surprising speed has made him a valuable and versatile commodity for the...

When ever you see the Carolina Panthers insert fullback Mike Tolbert into the game it is time to pay attention--especially if it is near the goal line where he has made a living punching the ball over and doing a little dance.
