LINKEven though he's finished three of his four years on injured reserve, the Panthers remain in favor of Foster.
"We've always said it -- we love DeShaun Foster and we'd love to have him back," general manager Marty Hurney said. "But this time of year, it's hard to tell what's going to happen."
Foster agent, David Dunn, didn't want to comment on the negotiations last week, and Hurney didn't shed much light either.
But the fact remains, the two sides are talking, and that's not true of all the Panthers free agents. So long as the numbers he's seeking aren't astronomical, the odds favor his return compared to any of the other backs on the market.
