With Carolina fighting to get back in the game, Benjamin hauled in catches of 12, 15 and 28 yards in the fourth quarter. 

Benjamin also had a shot at a third touchdown, but could not get both feet in bounds after making a tremendous catch in the back of the end zone in the second quarter.

Jonathan Stewart
News
Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday that the team would like to continue to use a two-back system this season, according to ESPN.

Ideally the team would like for Jonathan Stewart to get 15 carries while eight or more carries would go to another running back.

“The thing you’ve got to be careful about in this league is you can’t rely on one player at one position,’’ Rivera said during the NFC coaches breakfast. “Running back has definitely been proven that you’ve got to have a good two-back tandem.

“And that’s what we’re looking for. We’re looking for that complement to Jonathan.’’

Cam Newton
News
For Panthers quarterback Cam Newton to take the next step in his development, he must continue to improve his fundamentals, coach Ron Rivera told reporters.

"I'd like to see him continue to work on his position-specific skills ... his technique, his throwing motion," Rivera said at the NFL owners meeting, per ESPN.com. "He relies so much on his great athleticism that sometimes he's not as sound as he needs to be on his fundamentals.

"That's the next step in being sound in everything he does."

Entering his fifth season, Newton has a career completion percentage of 59.5.

Kurt Coleman
News
The Panthers have signed free-agent safety Kurt Coleman to a two-year contract, the team announced Monday.

"Kurt gives us a versatile safety who can play both spots," head coach Ron Rivera said. "He's athletic, he's intelligent and will understand the system, having worked with Sean (McDermott) before. He's a very consistent player and also adds special teams ability. That is something we've talked about improving upon, and we've made some moves this offseason looking for guys that can help us on special teams."

Coleman believes he deserves a shot at cracking the starting lineup with his new team after making just three starts in 15 games played in his one season with the Chiefs.

"Whatever role they want me to play I am willing to do," Coleman said. "But I think I have worked my way to be a starter. I know I can play as a starter and be very productive."

Coleman recorded 37 tackles, three interceptions and six passes defensed in 2014.
