José Turned Down Professional Try Out Offer by Panthers

It was announced by the Panthers on Sunday that Scott Clemmensen underwent minor knee surgery at the end of last week, and he would miss approximately 3 weeks. That would be all of training camp, but they expect him to be back by the season opener in October.

So that started rumors about a possibility of José getting a call.

Today it was announced on twitter by Renaud Levoie that the Panthers offered José a PTO (professional try out), but he rejected it because he's waiting for a contract:

With Clemmensen out for 3 weeks, Panthers offered a PTO to Jose Theodore today. Theodore rejected the offer. He's waiting for a contract.
This doesn't surprise me at all. A "try out" in camp does nothing for him. And it might keep him from the possibility of getting a contract from another team. I find it a bit of an insult that they even contacted him about it myself. Either you want to sign him or not. Don't come asking when you are short a goalie for camp. Nope. But that's just the way I see it. Maybe I'm bitter.
