    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Carolina Panthers on Tuesday signed former French bobsledder and NFL Europa standout linebacker Philippe Gardent.

    Gardent joins the Panthers after five seasons in NFL Europa, including the last three with the Cologne Centurions.

    The 6-1, 240-pound Gardent had 77 tackles and one sack in 2007 to help the Centurions finish first in the league in total defense. He was recognized on the All-NFL Europa League team for the second consecutive year and was named the NFL Europa League National Player of the Week twice.
    DAMMIT!
    You'd think living in frigging Minnesota would give the Vikes an edge in the winter sport scouting category!

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    The Vikes prefer to sign players that have never played a down of organized football in their life.

    It will make Chilly look that much more of a genius who molds players like a piece of clay in his freshly moisturized palm.

    LOL, this reminds me of when Herschel Walker joined the US Olympic Bobsled team in 1992.
