Adam Caplan from Scout.com / BattleRedNation.com reports:

The Carolina Panthers claimed former Houston Texans OL Charles Spencer off of waivers today. Spencer was noted on the transaction wire failing Houston's team physical on Tuesday. However, it's believed he'll be able to participate in Carolina's training camp which begins on Friday.

Good for him. I hope it works out.

I remain skeptical that he'll be able to "participate" in camp, though.

Maybe we wouldn't have bailed as fast if we were still going to do some power blocking. I'm guessing that his weight, combined with his injury, limited him to a point where Gibbs wanted nothing to do with him.

I'm thinking we bailed too soon. Just a gut feeling. The good thing is, the Panthers are in the NFC and we won't have to play them again for what, four years (unless we meet in a Super Bowl ;)).

Best of luck to him.

It says right there above that he failed his physical. After almost two full years of rehab, and he can't pass a physical - let alone hang with the other lineman in OTAs which didn't even require pads or contact - I think it was time to move on. I hope he makes a comeback though.

I've heard before, that a team can make sure you don't pass a physical if they are ready to get rid of you.

Yeah, and keeping him around for two years and paying him during that time is a sure sign that we wanted to get rid of him.

The Texans did the right thing. I wish the fans were able to move on as well.

I don't get the 'too soon' and 'too fast' comments. This was one of the most deliberate, prolonged and painful decisions I can recall for any player rehab decision. If he couldn't get back on the field without pads nearly two years post-surgery, I don't see how waiting two or even four more months would all of a sudden have gotten him back on the field with pads and with expectations to perform at full NFL speed.

If he plays anywhere this year, it's not because the Texans gave up too soon, it's because of one of two things: a) they completely blew the assessment of where he's at, which I doubt is the case, or b) he no longer has the requisite agility to play in a Gibbs 'get to the second level in a hurry' system, but can still maul away in a power blocking scheme, which is possible. I'm leaning toward his NFL career is over and the Texans did everything they could to help him come back.

Let's keep something in perspective - he was picked up by the Panthers - the same team that thought enough of David Carr to give him a spot on the roster.

I'm not saying... I'm just saying.

I think he said that he'd never be 100% again , I see him having issues from now on . A 340 lb dude with 8 screws holding your bone together and you push off with said bone while trying to drive another 300 lb guy 2 yards back , just seems painfull .

I was afraid he would end up with the Titans and become all world . Did'nt the Panthers draft Otah from Pitt ?

Mailman
07-23-2008, 08:36 PM
I knew he'd be cut the day I saw that photo of him during OTAs. His size was shocking.

I was as high on Big Nasty as anyone, but I think the praise and hype Spencer got was hugely disproportionate to his on-field contributions. He may have developed into a great LT, but we really only saw him once. No one really knows how good he would've been.

As unfortunate as the Big Nasty situation was for all parties, I'm hopeful that his deal with the Panthers portends good fortune for both the player and his former team. The fact that Spencer got snapped up quickly tells me that he might still be able to play in the NFL after all, and it also says that this team has OL depth like never before.

J-Russ
07-23-2008, 08:44 PM
So, in a way, we pretty much traded Charles Spencer for Rashard Butler, who played for the Panthers last year and was also a third-round pick of the same draft class. Two tackles with health-problem... even trade, no?

Best of luck to Spencer in Carolina.

Okay, I'm confused. Manfull reports that Spencer passed the physical with the Texans, but the report from the OP says he did not.

It doesn't change my opinion on how the Texans handled it, but I'm just not sure what's true. Typically the local writers are more up on these things.

Left me somewhat confused. Since no mention of an injury settlement, I wonder if he was passed so that he may have had a chance (without a negative label) to hook up with another team, like he has with the Panthers. I doubt that if he was not physical able to participate in a lesser OTA, that all of a sudden he would have passed a physical for TC where competition would push him to his limits. It'll be more telling if he passes the Panthers' physical. Still a little confusing.

I certainly wish things would have worked out for Spencer here, but we needed to move on. I hope he can eventually return 100% and play well for the Panthers or another team. It will be interesting to see if he passes the Panthers physical.

Yeah, what the heck? Something is crossed up here.

Far as a previous comment about an injury settlement - there wouldn't be an injury settlement because if I'm not mistaken that's only done in cases where a player is on Injured Reserve... it protects the player from being released without compensation due to an injury.

So they didn't have to settle or anything, they just outright released him.

Disclaimer - this is just a SWAG:
But it could be as simple as the Texans wanted him to meet some weight goal, which he perhaps did not. Perhaps that could be construed as "not passing the physical". His leg is physically healed but he's not in the type of shape that Gibbs wants to see in his linemen.

He says he passed the Texans physical.

Spencer said he is not worried about the Panthersí physical, since he recently passed one for the Texans.

DiehardChris,

I thought that an injury settlement was available if the player was unable to perform during the term of his contract due to an an injury sustained on the field during the period of the contract.

If anyone can find a cite for the CBA rules on settlement, I would certainly appreciate it.

Weird, Carolina was the first team I thought of when wondering where Spencer could wind up. Kinds surprised they picked him up this soon. Sure wish we had a spot for him on this team but I understand releasing him. Even if he ends up being a really good O-linemen (which I hope he does) doesn't necessarily mean he would have made it here. Really sounds like this is the most demanding of any OL in the league, I like that.

Wish Spencer the best but with his weight and how Gibbs will probably want to run the OL things just didn't look like they'd add up.

I'm just not sure he'll make it back to full-form which is sad considering everything. At least he is out of the division and if he does make the team and start I think we can al ltake part in cheering for him(unless we play them).

Might be a panther now Charles but I got a feeling the all the Texans fans will still cheer for you.

I know he started off with the Panthers but I believe he was cut in the last round of pre-season cuts and we picked him up off the waiver wire. He was with us before the first game, iirc. If a guy spends the entire season with us, I consider that playing with us all year regardless which TC he was in.

But, let's check the old posts and see...

Maybe I'm mistaken.

But CS didn't really play for us last year anyway. btw, when I made the other post, I didn't implied that we got Butler as soon as we let go of Spencer, I was just saying that it was sorta like a trade-off of talents, since their situation was similar.

Rashad Butler was picked up off of waivers prior to the beginning of the season but was only activated for the last 8 games. So, he was with the team the entire season but I can easily see why you'd think we got him midway through the season.

Lance Z over at the Chronic is on the record saying that he has a source inside the Texans that says CS isn't doing that great.

Per his "Z Report":

I had someone within the Texans tell me that they disagree with the previous assessments I received on Spencer. This person says that he will be surprised if Spencer passes a physical with the Panthers because his leg is still in poor shape and he's having a hard time moving laterally. My question would be - how did he pass the Texans physical then?

He's getting a feel for it, and it will take a little time but he's got the ability. Now it's just a matter of learning the offense.
On how healthy Spencer's knee is: Our doctors said that he's cleared for practice, and they know more a lot more than I do; so far so good.
In other news, recently acquired OT Charles Spencer passed his phsyical and is cleared to work tomorrow. There were no other issues with the physicals and everyone who is here is ready to practice Saturday morning.
1. The Panthers looked more like a Tour de France team than a football team on Wednesday afternoon. In all, nine players sat out the afternoon session. At one point they had to bring extra stationary bikes for the players to ride. At one time six were in use by Jonathan Stewart, Adam Seward, LaBrandon Toefield, D.J. Hackett, Damione Lewis and Charles Spencer. Running on the side were Darwin Walker and Maake Kemoeatu. None of those injuries are believed to be serious. Basically, it was players getting a day off.

I think that's why he ran up on Spencer, he was trying to get to the buffet line. I think the Texans should have put one in the end zone....on second thought maybe not.

Good Luck Spencer, I hope everything works out for you!

Wow. To be waived this early in camp. Ya, I would say Kubes and co were definetely vindicated. And good luck to Mr. Spencer, maybe he will shape up and land somewhere.

If he shapes up, he could some where down the line end up in Houston................stranger things have happened.:texflag:

Sad.

Move to NFL Football though. Spencer isn't a Texan unfortunately.

NFL = Not For Long

I hoped he would work out here but I guess Gibbs wasn't impressed. Carolina followed suit it seems.

At least he has a college degree that he could always fall back on.

Me too. I thought the reason we got rid of him was because he was not a good fit for the ZBS. Seeing him have trouble getting work as a mauler makes me feel a little better about our cut. Looks like we are finally getting rid of the right players.

I stopped drinking the Spencer Kool Aid early in OTAs when this photo appeared on HT.com. I knew then he'd never make the team.

I read somewhere that he has a few job offers here locally with some oil companies. Best of luck Charles!

yeah, that was brutal.

But I can't hate on Dayne. He was a big reason we beat the Colts that one time...one time....one time....one time...*bang!* many moons ago.

When was the last time anyone saw Ron Dayne?

I think the Dayne Train may be in Spencer's caboose.

Anyone think he might be back in camp due to our injuries along the Oline? Doubtful, but he should know the system. :thinking:

Rick Smith said that if Spencer gets into shape, they could sign him to the practice squad. Seems like a win-win to me.

Given all the good decisions that Kubes and Co. have been making, I'm a little surprised that they needed to be . . . "vindicated".

CS calf is the same size as the old dude next to him...... and he's like 200 pounds less then him. Spencer upper body is soo disproportional to his lower body, it's crazy.

Well now we know why he could get on the field this spring and summer. The knee is healed, but the Texans were scared to death to get caught in a Corey Stringer situation. Can you blame them ?

Though the Jacksonville Jaguars indicated on Tuesday that they donít plan to add any offensive lineman following the shooting of backup tackle Richard Collier, Adam Caplan of Scout.com reports that the Jags have agreed to terms with Charles Spencer on a one-year deal.

Spencer was a third-round pick of the Texans in 2006. He suffered a serious knee injury during his rookie season, and the team released him earlier this year. The Panthers claimed him on waivers, but released him shortly thereafter.

Because heís not a vested veteran, his salary wonít become essentially guaranteed by being on the Week One roster.

This just bothers me. Not because I think we should have kept him - but because, well, it just bothers me. Divisional opponent and all.

Hmmm, I don't think we'll see him week 4. Week 13 however.

I think we can all get over Spencer. He's not going to be able dominate and change games for us or against us. It's a sad story for him, but after one game his potential will always remain that - potential. IMO.

I've been over him a looong time. I'm not saying I wish he would have signed with us - clearly he's not a fit, and he's just not ready - it's just that I LIKE him, and he's gone to a division rival... so now I have to, you know, not like him.

No, this is good. We return the TB curse back to them.
