Regardless, Seward is a good player. He has shined every pre-season game he's started and I've never thought of him as a ‘big' LB as he has the speed to drop back into coverage. He is tough, is willing to make the big hit and get his nose in there on short yardage situations. He has battled some injuries missing games the past two seasons, most recently an Achilles injury (I'm going from memory on that one).
Off the field he has not had any issues. He always takes the time to sign autographs at training time and is a very buff, physically impressive dude who always had hot chicks around him (though what's with the hair I don't know). I wish the Panthers could have kept him but it was obvious he is ‘starter' quality and was not going to get that chance in Carolina behind Beason.
I'm sure Seward sees this as a ‘now or never' opportunity to start in the NFL. I have to admit though as a GT alum I'm a huge Phillip Wheeler fan so if that is who he is up against it's going to be tough for him. It's a ‘no lose' situation for the Colts though as either way you will have a quality back-up with no let down in talent between the two.
I'm sure I speak for most Panthers fans in that we wish Adam Seward the best.
