LINK NO MORE 'TWO-TON': The easy punch lines to last week's acquisition of guard Toniu Fonoti were the fat jokes. After all, the last time anyone saw him, the former San Diego guard was reportedly 390 pounds. But hold your laughter, because he's hardly the same guy. According to multiple sources around the team who've seen him, he's closer to 330 now, in what one teammate referred to as "great shape." If he can maintain that, he gives them an interesting component to a line that's undergoing significant change. The Panthers have made a clearly stated goal of getting bigger and (more importantly) more physical up front. If Fonoti's back to the shape he was in when he joined the league, he'd have a shot at a starting job, though they like free agent pickup Keydrick Vincent at right guard. That Fonoti's still young enough to withstand the weight loss also contributes to the upside of the deal. When the Chargers chose him in the second round of the 2002, he was the youngest player ever drafted, seven months short of his 21st birthday. He's only 26 now, a time when most players are considered to be hitting their peak.
