Craig Roh
News
The Panthers signed their entire practice squad to reserve/futures contracts, reports the Charlotte Observer.

Matt Blanchard
News
The Panthers signed their entire practice squad to reserve/futures contracts, reports the Charlotte Observer. The squad consists of wideout Brenton Bersin, quarterback Matt Blanchard, linebacker Ben Jacobs, guard Michael Jasper, tight end D.C. Jefferson, offensive tackle Andrew McDonald, cornerback DeAndre Presley and defensive end Craig Roh.
Colin Jones
News
The Panthers extended the contracts of defensive end Mario Addison, safety Colin Jones and offensive tackle Nate Chandler. The team made the announcement on Wednesday. 

Addison received a two-year extension following three seasons of work in which he totaled 3.5 sakcs and 36 total tackles, most of which came on special teams. Jones also got a two-year extension and has similarly contributed on special teams, tallying 27 total tackles over 44 games. 

Chandler got a three-year extension and should begin the season as a starting tackle for the Panthers. 

Josh Thomas
News
Panthers defensive back Josh Thomas didn't factor into many plays in Week 12, but he came up with one big one in a 20-16 win over the Dolphins. Thomas ended Miami's first drive of the game when he picked off quarterback Ryan Tannehill for his first career interception. He added one tackle in the game.
Roman Harper
News
Free-agent safety Roman Harper is staying in the NFC South, as the long-time Saint has agreed to a two-year deal with the Panthers, according to ESPN.com Saturday. The deal with pay Harper $4.5 million over two years, with a $1.5 million signing bonus.

Harper is a two-time Pro Bowler who fell on hard times a year ago, appearing in just nine games. He finished the 2013 season with just 39 tackles, his lowest total since he was a rookie in 2006. 

Colin Cole
News
The Panthers have re-signed defensive lineman Colin Cole, according to a report from the Charlotte Observer Tuesday. Cole will return to the Panthers on a one-year deal, after starting 13 games a year ago in his return from a two-year absence due to injuries.

Cole played 31 percent of the team's defensive snaps in all, finishing with 15 tackles and a sack. Financial terms of the deal are not yet known. 

Amini Silatolu
News
Panthers starting left guard Amini Silatolu, who tore his ACL in Week 4 last season, should be "ready to roll" when the offseason program begins in April, reports the team's website. The return of the 6-4, 311-pounder would be a big boost to Cam Newton and the entire offense.

Silatolu was a second-round pick in 2012.

Richie Brockel
News
The Panthers re-signed tight end/fullback Richie Brockel to a two-year contract and guard Garry Williams to a one-year deal.
Brian Folkerts
News
The Panthers made a few roster moves Wednesday. They signed center Brian Folkerts and wide receiver Marvin McNutt to the active roster, while also signing linebacker Ben Jacobs and linebacker Jeff Tapinian to the practice squad.
Tyler Gaffney
News
With the 204th pick in the draft, the Panthers selected running back Tyler Gaffney out of Stanford.

Gaffney had just 791 yards over his first three seasons, but busted out in a starting role in 2013. He finished eighth in the nation with 1,709 rushing yards on 330 carries, while picking up 22 total touchdowns.

Jared Wheeler
News
The Panthers waived center Jared Wheeler and linebacker Billy Boyko and signed former Titans center Kevin Matthews.  
Marvin McNutt
News
Jerricho Cotchery and rookie Kelvin Benjamin will start while Jason Avant works as the third receiver. That's the prediction of how the Panthers will re-stock their receiving corps according to the Charlotte Observer

The paper thinks Tiquan Underwood might have cost himself an opportunity after dropping a lot of passes through the OTAs. Rarely-used receivers Marvin McNutt and Tavarres King don't look like full-time players just yet. The paper suggested Brenton Bersin as a candidate to step into a small role -- the 6-foot-3, 210-pound receiver is a favorite of Cam Newton's and he knows every receiving spot, which the coaches like. 

Carolina's offense figures to use more two-tight end sets with Greg Olsen and Ed Dickson the primary weapons. 

Charles Godfrey
News
Panthers safety Charles Godfrey agreed to a pay cut that reduced his 2014 base salary from $5 million to 750,000, though he can earn $1.7 million back through incentives, reports ESPN. Godfrey is coming back from a torn Achilles that limited him to two games last year.
Greg Hardy
News
Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy was found guilty on charges of assault on a female and communicating threats. The Associated Press reports a judge sentenced Hardy to 18 months probation while a 60-day jail sentence was suspended.

Hardy is expected to appeal and has requested a jury trial in superior court, which means his probation is also suspended until a trial is had. This will allow Hardy to travel and play this season. 

In a statement, the Panthers said "We have just learned of the verdict and are respectful of the process. We do not have a comment at this time."

Hardy is expected to receive a suspension from the NFL for violating their personal code policy.  

Josh Norman
News
The Panthers have listed WR Tavarres King, WR Marvin McNutt, CB Josh Norman, RB Jonathan Stewart, LB Dan Connor, OL Travis Bond and DE Wes Horton as inactive against the 49ers. 

Stewart attempted to get through practice this week despite a knee injury. The other six players are healthy scratches.

Toney Clemons
News
The Jaguars have trimmed its roster down to 54 players after parting ways with backup quarterbacks Mike Kafka and Matt Scott on Friday, the team announced.

Players also released were wide receiver Jeremy Ebert, defensive end Pannel Egboh, running back Jonathan Grimes, linebacker Brandon Marshall, wide receiver Charly Martin, offensive tackle Pat McQuistan, guard Drew Nowak, cornerback Kevin Rutland, defensive tackle D'Anthony Smith, linebacker Julian Stanford and cornerback Marcus Trufant.

Wide receiver Toney Clemons and defensive end Ryan Davis were among the first-year players released. Defensive tackle T.J. Barnes, offensive tackle R.J. Dill, tight end Ryan Otten, wide receiver Tobais Palmer, safety Steven Terrell and linebacker Mike Zimmer were among the rookies released.

Kelvin Benjamin
News
Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin spent a little time with the Ross Tucker Football Podcast and mentioned how he's focused on playing the X in the offense and that he's at 245 pounds (up from 240 pounds at the combine). For Benjamin, learning the playbook and adjusting to the speed of the game have been key factors for him this offseason. 

"It really does speed up," Benjamin said of playing football in the pros versus in college. "You're not used to it. When I first got there, rookie training camp was pretty much the same. It was easy. I caught on real fast and I was making big plays. When I got to OTAs for the first two days I felt nervous and it was a faster pace because the real quarterbacks came in and were calling the plays much faster. So I really just had to go back in and study, get with Cam (Newton) and listen to the calls and after that it really slowed back down."

As for the playbook, Benjamin is focused on learning it so it doesn't slow him down once the games start. He did add that it was easy for him to catch on because the plays were based on routes, not concepts, which is something he had in high school. Benjamin is also allowed to change his route based on what the coverage is. 

Finally, Benjamin said he got work in with Newton after minicamp practices as well as during the final minicamp practice. When comparing Newton's arm to that of Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, Benjamin conceded that Newton throws a "powerful" ball.

Jordan Gay
News
The Giants cut quarterback Rusty Smith and waived linebacker Allen Bradford, cornerback Junior Mertile and punter Jordan Gay.
Kenjon Barner
News
The Panthers listed these players as inactive for their game at New Orleans: linebacker Jordan Senn (hamstring), defensive end Frank Alexander, cornerback Josh Norman, running back Kenjon Barner, guard Chris Scott and receivers Tavarres King and Marvin McNutt.
Thomas Davis
News
The Panthers restructured the contract of veteran linebacker Thomas Davis, creating $3.25 million in cap room this season, reports the Charlotte Observer. This is the fourth time in three years the team has renegotiatied with Davis due to his injuries or for cap reasons, the report said.
Jonathan Stewart
News
Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart said he's healthy now, as healthy as he's been since the 2011 season, reports ESPN.

"Very excited about having Jonathan on the field," coach Ron Rivera said. "He's healthy again. He's moving the way we need him to move. I like what we're getting out of him. Even Jonathan is saying this is the first time he's been healthy [in a while]. So that's a good thing."

Stewart is expected to work in a committee backfield with DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert.



Injury
Knee - Probable for start of training camp
Kevin Hughes
News
Quarterback Vince Young, running back Alex Green and tight end D.J. Williams were among the veterans cut by the Packers on Saturday. But the team waived many more in getting down to the mandated 53.

The following are also gone: fullback Jonathan Amosa, safeties Chaz Powell and David Fulton, centers Patrick Lewis and Garth Gerhart, tackle Kevin Hughes, wide receivers Miles White, Tyrone Walker and Charles Johnson, linebackers Donte Savage, Dezman Moses and Terrell Manning, cornerbacks Brandon Smith, James Nixon and Loyce Means, defensive tackle Jordan Miller, and tight ends Jake Stoneburner and Matthew Mulligan

Cam Newton
News
Despite working out with his receiving corps during his time off before training camp, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was still limited in his movement and isn't 100 percent yet, according to the Charlotte Observer. Newton had major ankle surgery in March and has needed all offseason to rehab from it. 

Per the paper, the Panthers will try to balance Newton's reps in practice with keeping his ankle in as good of shape as possible. The team intends to use training camp as the time for him to get on the same page as his receivers, and for Newton to be ready to roll for Week 1 at Tampa Bay. 

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for start of training camp
Antoine Cason
News
What was expected is now reportedly official. The Panthers have signed free agent cornerback Antoine Cason to a one-year contract, per Pro Football Talk. Cason served as a reserve with Arizona in 2013, but gained playing time late in the season.
Ed Dickson
News
New Panthers tight end Ed Dickson heads into training camp looking to solidify his role as the No. 2 option behind starter Greg Olsen, reports the Charlotte Observer.

Dickson had "an impressive showing during OTAs." He had 25 catches for 273 yards and one touchdown last year in Baltimore.

DeAngelo Williams
News
Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams will stand with his team through thick and thin but admitted to NFL Network on Thursday that he's concerned about their future after letting their top four receivers go this offseason. Williams said he'll miss the leadership of Steve Smith and the entire receiving corps' knowledge of the offense but is fearful for what might happen to the Panthers run game. 

"I just don't want to see eight, nine guys in the box week in and week out because we're working on our timing," Williams said. 

With Cam Newton on the shelf until training camp and the Panthers fielding a new receiving corps, the clock is ticking on Carolina's offense getting on the same page. 

Robert Lester
News
Panthers safety Robert Lester is questionable Week 17.

Lester is dealing with an ankle injury. He tweaked the injury during Friday's practice, and was limited. He had been fine earlier in the week.

Tiquan Underwood
News
After a nice series of offseason workouts, Panthers receiver Tiquan Underwood was pegged by ESPN as a breakout candidate. That's because he'll fill the role previously held by Ted Ginn, a spot that caught 36 passes and five scores as a deep-ball receiver in 2013.

Underwood had 24 grabs and four touchdowns in a similar role with the Bucs last season, and with offensive coordinator Mike Shula familiar with his game and receivers coach Ricky Proehl pitching in, ESPN believes the potential is there for him to double his production

Thomas DeCoud
News
The Panthers agreed to sign free agent defensive back Thomas DeCoud to a two-year deal Thursday, the team announced.

The deal will pay the former Falcon $3.75 million if he meets all incentives, and includes a $500,000 signing bonus. DeCoud is coming off a season in which he racked up 65 tackles in 15 games, but failed to record an interception for the first time in five seasons.

Graham Gano
News
The Panthers have signed kicker Graham Gano to a four-year contract, the team announced Friday.

"The special teams unit was a large part of our success last year, and we are excited to keep Graham as a part of our team," Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. "Graham has shown range and accuracy in his field goal kicking, and his strong leg has been a weapon for us on kickoffs."

In 2013, Gano played in all 16 games for Carolina, converting 24 of 27 field goal attempts to establish a career high with an 88.9 field goal percentage. Gano set a franchise record and tied for the NFL lead for the most made field goals of 50 yards or more with six. He was the only kicker in the NFL with more than three attempts from 50-plus yards without a miss from that distance.

Gano placed 76 of 82 kickoffs in the end zone with 63 touchbacks to lead the NFL with a 77.8 touchback percentage, the highest touchback percentage in the NFL since 1994.

A.J. Klein
News
Panthers defensive lineman Greg Hardy and linebacker A.J. Klein both contributed a sack Week 13 against the Buccaneers. For Hardy, it was his seventh sack of the season. For Klein, it was just his second.

The sack was Hardy's only tackle on the day. Klein finished with three, all solo.

Trai Turner
News
The Panthers have signed 2014 first-round draft choice (28th overall) wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin and third-round draft choice (92nd overall) guard Trai Turner , the team announced Wednesday.

Benjamin played in 28 games with 14 starts at Florida State, entering the NFL following his sophomore season in 2013. He totaled 84 receptions for 1,506 yards and 19 touchdowns and finished his career second in school history with an average of 17.93 yards per catch.

He is expected to start for the Panthers or at least play a prominent role since Carolina has to replace Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn from last year's squad.

Turner played in 25 games with 20 starts at right guard at LSU, entering the NFL following his sophomore season in 2013. In two seasons, Turner delivered 115 knockdowns and 29 touchdown-resulting blocks while surrendering just three sacks.

Nate Chandler
News
With Jordan Gross' retirement, the Panthers will have a new left tackle in 2014. The team's website says the competition is between Byron Bell, who started 14 games at right tackle last year, and Nate Chandler, who started six games at guard and two at right tackle.

Chandler is a converted defensive lineman who went undrafted out of UCLA in 2012.

Greg Olsen
News
No quarterback needed a receiver more than Cam Newton, and thankfully the Panthers gave him one Thursday night in the first round of the NFL Draft. With pick No. 28, the Panthers selected Kelvin Benjamin from Florida State.

Benjamin immediately becomes the best receiver in Carolina (tight end Greg Olsen is obviously the best weapon, but we're talking just wideouts). After losing Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn this offseason, the Panthers went into Thursday night with Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood atop the depth chart. Yes, you read that right.

We're not expecting Benjamin to become an elite Fantasy receiver, but this is a great opportunity. In two seasons with the Seminoles (27 games) Benjamin posted 1,452 yards on 80 catches with 18 touchdowns -- 14 last season. He was a great weapon for Jameis Winston for the Seminoles, and we hope he does the same for Newton. At 6-foot-5, 240 pounds he is a great target.

Newton, who is coming off ankle surgery, is still a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback on Draft Day because of his lack of weapons. But if Benjamin can develop quickly, and Newton goes back to running more, his value will rise.

As for Benjamin, he's worth a late-round flier in re-draft leagues. And he's a second-round pick in rookie-only formats.

Tre Boston

The Panthers signed two draft picks, fourth-round safety Tre Boston and fifth-round corner Bene Benwikere, and undrafted free agent linebacker Billy Boyko.

Kony Ealy
News
With the 60th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Panthers selected Mizzou defensive end Kony Ealy .

A tall pass rusher at 6-foot-4 but built strong at 273 pounds, Ealy posted 43 tackles, including 14.5 for loss and 9.5 sacks and three forced fumbles last year. There's concern that he's not good at stopping the run and might only be a factor in obvious passing situations, but he's a big-bodied player with moves to get to the quarterback. He'll get in the Panthers' devastating pass rush rotation. 

Bene Benwikere
News
The Panthers signed two draft picks, fourth-round safety Tre Boston and fifth-round corner Bene Benwikere, and undrafted free agent linebacker Billy Boyko.

Mario Addison
News
The Panthers extended the contracts of defensive end Mario Addison, safety Colin Jones and offensive tackle Nate Chandler. The team made the announcement on Wednesday. 

Addison received a two-year extension following three seasons of work in which he totaled 3.5 sakcs and 36 total tackles, most of which came on special teams. Jones also got a two-year extension and has similarly contributed on special teams, tallying 27 total tackles over 44 games. 

Chandler got a three-year extension and should begin the season as a starting tackle for the Panthers.

The Panthers defense played well Sunday in Week 17 at Atlanta, highlighted by nine sacks in a 21-20 victory.

The leader of the defense was Greg Hardy with four sacks. Charles Johnson also added two sacks. Melvin White also had an interception for a touchdown.

The Panthers are off until the Divisional Round of the playoffs. They locked up the No. 2 seed in the NFC and a first-round bye after winning the NFC South title.

Luke Kuechly
News
NFL Defensive Player of the Year Luke Kuechly said he's working on his pass rushing moves.

"I just think that everybody's goal is to get better, and that's my goal," Kuechly told the team's website. "My personal goals are really to just get better at pass rush, working on some moves, working on counter-moves that will allow me to do some more things. I think last year I got stuck in a couple spots in pass rush and it led to big plays because they were counting on me getting there and I wasn't quite able to.

"Same thing with pass coverage. I was talking to Thomas (Davis) about it a little bit today and he said it's just you've got to be confident in what you're doing. The more reps I get at it, the more confident I'll get, the better I'll feel about it."

Kuechly, a 23-year-old linebacker, had 156 tackles, seven pass breakups, four interceptions and two sacks last year.

"Joe had a strong workout for us," coach Ron Rivera said. "He is a young player who intrigues us and has a similar skill set to Cam (Newton). With Cam sidelined for the spring, it is an opportunity to get a good evaluation of Joe as well as Matt Blanchard, who was on our practice squad last year."

Jerricho Cotchery
News
Jerricho Cotchery and rookie Kelvin Benjamin will start while Jason Avant works as the third receiver. That's the prediction of how the Panthers will re-stock their receiving corps according to the Charlotte Observer

The paper thinks Tiquan Underwood might have cost himself an opportunity after dropping a lot of passes through the OTAs. Rarely-used receivers Marvin McNutt and Tavarres King don't look like full-time players just yet. The paper suggested Brenton Bersin as a candidate to step into a small role -- the 6-foot-3, 210-pound receiver is a favorite of Cam Newton's and he knows every receiving spot, which the coaches like. 

Carolina's offense figures to use more two-tight end sets with Greg Olsen and Ed Dickson the primary weapons.

Jason Avant
News
Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is running a three-day training session for the team's quarterbacks and receivers in Greensboro, N.C., reports the Charlotte Observer.

The group includes Newton, two other quarterbacks, nine receivers and one tight end. Of the 13 players there, no one other than Newton threw or caught a pass for the Panthers in the 2013 regular season, which means Greg Olsen is not in attendance.

Newton, close to but still not 100 percent on his surgically repaired ankle, has missed nearly all of the offseason workouts while rehabbing and has not been able to throw as much as he would like with his brand-new receiving corps, which includes rookie Kelvin Benjamin and veterans Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant.

"We're trying to fill in the question marks, and it starts with these days," Newton said. "No distractions."
