Formerly associated with the Green Bay Packers, Mike Wahle recently was inducted into the family of Panthers. This offensive lineman was not always at this position. Actually, early on in his career he wasn’t just playing football. Wahle started as a pitcher and quarterback. He played these positions until he shot his arm and focused strictly on football. Wahle focused on playing left guard for the Packers and is glad he will stay at that position with the Panthers.
"It's difficult to come from another team and have to learn the new terminology and plays. To be able to stay at left guard, at least initially, will make the learning process for me that much quicker. There's nothing technique-wise that I'm going to have to work on. It's all about learning the terminology and jelling with these guys. Later on, if I do have to make a switch, it's something I'll be able to do, but initially I'm glad I can stay at the same spot from a learning standpoint."
