Now that the big news is taken care of, the Panthers are handling the smaller stuff quickly. They've finalized deals with fourth-rounders Mike Goodson and Tony Fiammetta Friday, giving them three of their seven picks under contract.
Now all they've got left is second-rounders Everette Brown and Sherrod Martin, third-rounder Corvey Irvin and fifth-rounder Duke Robinson. It's a much earlier start to this process than normal. Maybe negotiator Rob Rogers is looking to go on vacation next week. One of these days I'm going to have to get on his same schedule.
To make room for the Goodson and Fiammetta on the roster, they waived LS Patrick MacDonald and DT Babatunde Oshinowo.
