CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Michael Oher is anxious to return to the position that first made him famous — "The Blind Side."
Oher, the subject of a book and 2009 hit movie by that name, will have a chance to win the Carolina Panthers starting left tackle job this season after struggling in 2014 playing right tackle for the Tennessee Titans.
The 28-year-old Oher says "it's my more natural position."
The Panthers signed Oher to a two-year, $7 million contract last month after parting ways with starting left tackle Byron Bell. Oher is penciled in as the replacement, although it's possible Carolina could select a tackle in the upcoming NFL draft.
Oher played 11 games last season for the Titans before undergoing season-ending surgery on his left toe. Tennessee released him in February.
