Longtime Panthers guard Travelle Wharton might not have shrunk quite like his old teammate Jordan Gross, but he’s going to have the opportunity.

According to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, Wharton will announce his retirement Tuesday at a press conference at Panthers training camp.

The 2004 third-round pick spent most of his 10 years in the NFL with the Panthers, coming back last year as an injury replacement and playing fairly well.

But he ultimately decided not to try that route again, and will likely join Gross on the sidelines, getting skinny.

before long Cam wil be the only one left. Now that steve Smith left everyone is jumping ship.

We knew it was likely he was going to retire as far back as last season. Just now it's official.

He was a good one for us, and played well after coming back last year. I honestly think Silatolu (our starting LG) was playing better than him before he went down in the Arizona game though. He'll be back this year. We could actually run the ball pretty decently when Silatolu was out there.
