Punt or be Punted

Tom Rouen and Jason Baker appear to be neck-and-neck in the fight to win the Panthers punting job, which was left vacant following the team's trade of the troubled Todd Sauerbrun to the Denver Broncos. Steve Cheek, a third punter, is also in minicamp, but has done little because of the leg injury and could be released before the team ever gets to training camp.

Neither Rouen nor Baker seem particularly close with Sauerbrun, even in the tight knit world of NFL punters and kickers. And maybe that's a good thing given the Panthers would like to distance themselves as much as possible from Sauerbrun, who, according to 60 Minutes report, purchased syringes from a Columbia, S.C.-based doctor for the purpose of injecting steroids, was nabbed for DUI last year...
