Michael Oher: Released by Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oher (concussion) was released with a failed physical designation by the Panthers on Thursday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Oher missed the Panthers' last 13 games of the 2016 season under the league's concussion protocol, and the issues have lingered into the offseason. The Panthers signed former Viking Matt Kalil to start at left tackle in 2017, while Oher will look to get back to full health before potentially catching on with another team.

Panthers' Michael Oher: Plans on reporting to training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oher (concussion) plans on reporting to training camp in late July, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Oher has been subject to the league's concussion protocol since September of 2016, missing the Panthers' final 13 games of the season as a result. He reported to the team's mandatory minicamp in June, but was unable to participate due to the concussion protocol. With Oher's future uncertain in Carolina, Daryl Williams and rookie Taylor Morton figure to compete for playing time at right tackle throughout the rest of the offseason, while newcomer Matt Kalil is slated to start at left tackle.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oher (concussion) is not a lock to be ready in time for June's mandatory minicamp, Joseph Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Michael Oher wants to bounce back with Panthers
by Ruben Palacios | CBS Sports Staff

Panthers left tackle Michael Oher thinks he's in the perfect place for his career to bounce back, per the Charlotte Observer.

Oher, who is coming off his worst season as a pro, signed a two-year, $7 million deal with the Panthers this offseason. Now on his third team in three years, Oher doesn't want to let any of his new teammates down.

“It seemed like they wanted me,” Oher said. “I got the (same) feeling going into my rookie year of not wanting to let guys down and guys with a winning culture. For me, it’s about getting back to the basics and fundamentals of doing everything right. Looking myself in the mirror knowing what I have to do and getting better from within.”

Oher started his career with four solid seasons as a Raven before nagging injuries began to hamper him in 2013. He signed a four-year deal with the Titans last offseason but injuries continued to plaque him while there. The Panthers gave Oher another chance to prove himself this offseason, and currently list him as their starting left tackle.
“I’m doing everything in my power to make that happen,” Oher said. “I know that I have the abilities and I’m going to put in the correct amount of work to get the job done. It’s just being around more guys who are willing to do the same.

“It’s definitely about culture in the NFL. That wins you football games alone.”

LT Michael Oher 'very key' to Panthers' protection scheme
by Elliot Smith | CBSSports.com

The Panthers brought in left tackle Michael Oher on a two-year deal to shore up a shaky offensive line, but Oher himself has been shaky the last several seasons, putting the onus on the former Raven and Titan to produce, coach Ron Rivera told ESPN.com. 

"Michael's shown up and come in here and worked very hard," Rivera said. "He's done a great job. I get the reports and look at the reports and look at what he's done. Everything he's done is telling us he wants to do the things he's done in the past.

Oher started 16 games for the Ravens when they won the Super Bowl in 2012, but his stint in Tennessee produced some poor numbers, and the Titans waived him after the 2014 season.

Panthers sign OT Michael Oher to two-year deal
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Panthers have signed offensive tackle Michael Oher to a two-year contract on Friday, per the team's official website. Financial terms of the deal were not made public.

Oher will be replacing Byron Bell, who won't be re-signed by Carolina this offseason. Oher spent the 2014 season with the Titans after signing a four-year, $20 million deal. However, Oher did not live up to expectations and was placed on injured reserve with a toe injury after Tennessee's first 11 games.

The 28-year-old spent his first five seasons with the Ravens, starting 80 consecutive games before he switched clubs. He was waived-injured by the Titans earlier this offseason. Carolina will be the third team he's played for in his seven years.

Titans tackles take shape following addition of Taylor Lewan
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Titans might not start rookie offensive tackle Taylor Lewan until 2015, reports the Tennessean. But that all depends on the status of current left tackle Michael Roos, reports TitansInsider.com.

The Tennessean reports that Lewan will likely be the top reserve behind Roos and right tackle Michael Oher. It adds that "more than likely, Lewan is going to be a backup in 2014."

But TitansInsider.com reports that with Lewan in the fold, there is talk the Titans might move Roos. He is set to make $6.625 million this year and was paid a $1 million roster bonus last month.

The report adds that moving on from Roos would not cost the Titans anything cap wise since he is in the last year of his deal. But talk of the move is just speculation for now.
