quarterback this season, he hasn't had one tryout.
Jeff George - Despite being rebuffed by the Minnesota Vikings recently,
he still wants to play. You hear that Carolina Panthers? What do you have to

regular season game since the 2001 season.

healthy he would certainly be worth a shot.

team that required him for that role.
