TE Barnidge Pusing Jeff King for Starting Tight End Job

Pro Football Weekly reports that Gary Barnidge could be the teams starting TE in 09:

Word is Gary Barnidge has taken the Panthers’ starting tight end job from Jeff King, who started all but one game in the past two seasons. Barnidge, who played sparingly as a rookie in 2008, is a much more talented receiver than King and he has shown off his good hands and ability to stretch the field in camp. King basically served as an extra offensive lineman last season, rarely making plays as a receiver, but he still will be called on in running situations, as he holds a significant edge over Barnidge as a blocker.
