Panthers Godfrey Tries To Find A Role After Injury

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Panthers defensive back Charles Godfrey is trying to remain optimistic despite a rough eight months.

He was Carolina's starting free safety last year before a torn Achilles in Week 2 ended his season.

Since then, Godfrey has not only battled through a grueling rehabilitation, but also taken a $4.25 million pay cut and been asked to change positions.

The Panthers want the 28-year-old Godfrey, who has started 74 games since 2008, to move to the nickel cornerback spot and compete for a job. That means any job security he once appeared to have is gone. Still, Godfrey remains upbeat, saying "I'm still a team player. I want to put our defense in the best position to win and be the best out here."
