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.
