Luke set the bar pretty high as a rookie, and from the looks of the reports he's already improved. Scary fuging thought.
Oh, and lol at Hardy having to turn down the intensity. Seems like the man is already on a mission. Add in the fact this is his contract year... well, Ryan, Brees, and Freeman better hope they have nice health insurance plans.

Rivera on Gettis - "he's coming back...he's had a couple nice days, we need that competition"
If Gettis shows enough during training camp to beat on Hixon for the 3rd WR spot, we will be a better team for it. Gettis is a bigger, faster target. Hopefully his improvement continues.

@josephperson: Former #Oregon TE (and Portland Bible College hoopster) Brandon Williams was held out with a knee injury he sustained earlier this week.
@josephperson: #Panthers DE Greg Hardy lost some bulk this offseason, down to 283 from 290 and change. Says it's all about speed this yr. @ItsGHardy

Loving all this news so far & Keek is just a monster! Hoping for Gettis to show up and make the 53

At least it seems Gettis is not in Rivera's doghouse. Will wait till TC before I start thinking he'll make the 53 man roster.

Interesting about Hardy slimming down. He had a break out year last year when he bulked up. Maybe he feels like he'll be on the end more with Star or Short on 3rd down?
Glad to hear about Gettis.
yeah, i think last year he knew he'd have to shift inside some, plus he might have just wanted to see if he could bulk up to 300 pounds.
this year we've got the interior set. there will be less need for him to move inside and just like he hardly lost any speed when he bulked up, i doubt he'd lose much in the way of power and explosiveness losing some weight.
either way, he's a beast.

Oh, a list of five impressions from the Panthers OTAs, you ask? All right http://t.co/t14Tnh15Am
excerpt from the above link...
1. Corners made plays: Veteran corner Drayton Florencemade a nice over-the-shoulder interception on a heave from Cam Newton to Brandon LaFell. It wasn't really a live-action play since most everyone had already stopped before Newton chucked it, but it was still a nice grab.
Later, on a pass intended for Ted Ginn Jr. down the sideline, second-year CB Josh Norman made a spectacular diving interception, hitting the ground hard without pads and getting the wind knocked out of him.
2. Beason participated: I figured LB Jon Beason would stretch and then be on the sideline for most of the time. Instead, the Pro Bowl linebacker participated in individual workouts before being replaced at strongside by newcomer Chase Blackburn. After practice, Beason ran 20 50-yard wind sprints.
