That would have placed his visit between the following events:
Rookie Mini-Camp: May 11-13
Mini-Camp: June 12-14
OTA's: May 22-24, May 30-June 1, June 4-7
How can you judge a team's locker room/team unity/leadership based on these events? Most of the players are vying for a roster spot and the team as whole wouldn't be complete until early September.
His decision had to have been made based on current leaders on the team. Say what you want about Ray Lewis, but that man can command a locker room or any room for that matter.

My bad, I wasn't trying to put words in his mouth. What I meant was...
Synopsis: The Panthers locker room has a losing mentality.
That being said, do you disagree that we have a losing mentality?
I disagree wholeheartedly. We are a young team that has lost its way. Simple as that. The FO set this team on a course for failure when the team was bankrupted of veteran leadership, questionable high draft picks and, arguably, gambling with tomorrow's draft picks today (mentality). This may have temporarily lead to a culture of losing for a season or two, but especially in retrospect that was a fait accompli. I reject the notion that Rivera, Cam, Smith, Beason, or Davis would even accept a losing mentality.
We missed out on a marginal wideout..... whoopty doo
Would have helped us out more than a little bit, if no where else but returns. If he is marginal, which I am not saying he isn't, then all of our WRs not named Smitty must be marginal.

Jones said he met with Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and former offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski during his visit, and came away impressed.
