Panthers should shun sensible, take Tavon Austin

The offseason has been a testament to the status quo. The Panthers kept the head coach, promoted the quarterback coach to offensive coordinator and hired a general manager who made no changes to the personal department, or waves.
So make some.
Of course Carolina has greater needs than a receiver. But there’s not a roster in the NFL without flaws. Good teams compensate by imposing their strengths, their style of play. The more you score, the less fearsome your defense has to be. Defensive tackles will be available in the second round, too.
Imagine. The Panthers break huddle; Smith lines up left, Austin in the slot, Brandon LaFell right, Olsen inside.
What’s Newton doing?
He’s smiling.
