Carolina Panthers fire GM Dave Gettleman

And so, general manager Dave Gettleman set out to do just that, drafting Christian McCaffery, Curtis Samuel, and Taylor Moton - two play-making back/receivers and an offensive linemen - in the first two rounds.

Which takes us to a trio of former Carolina Panthers veterans who couldn't wait to chime in on Gettleman's dismissal.

The collective reaction around the National Football League to Monday's announcement from the Carolina Panthers that they have fired General Manager Dave Gentleman can be summed up in a word: Whoa.

The team offered no immediate reason for Gettleman's dismissal.

Josh Norman and Steve Smith Sr. both expressed their feelings in different ways, but Williams calling Gettleman a "snake" certainly tops the cake. Norman then became a free agent and signed with the Redskins. Carolina apparently is now an option again in Williams' mind with Gettleman's firing.

The PiS has also introduced legislation that would replace all Supreme Court judges, except those chosen by the justice minister. The ruling government argues the changes are necessary because the judiciary system is corrupt and benefits the Polish elite.

Carolina hasn't announced a replacement for Gettleman, and after a 6-10 campaign in 2016, it enters the 2017 season with more questions than answers.

During an appearance on the Know Them from Adam podcast last week, Williams said the Panthers were one of four teams he wouldn't play for next season, along with the Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars and Dallas Cowboys.

Richardson also acknowledged the timing is not ideal as the Panthers are scheduled to report to camp on July 26.

Gettleman was hired by the Panthers in 2013 after he spent 14 years with the New York Giants, where he served as a scout (1998), pro personnel director (1999-2011) and senior pro personnel analyst (2012).
