Exclusive Fan Fest Photos

Yesterday, 09:52 PM

Yet again Fan Fest has come and gone.

 

Due to the CBA regulations, the players did not wear pads. So, unlike in years past, fan fest did not feature an actual scrimmage. Still, it was great to see the guys in action.

 

Before practice began, Cam had some encouragement for Greg Hardy, who was fairly quit for the practice. It an awkward situation Hardy is in, but everyone is trying to make the best of it.

I noticed KB tends to stick his tongue out quite a bit. It worked for Jordan, but I am not so sure its a great idea in football...

Cam Newton and Ryan Kalil continue to develop great chemistry. I think it is under appreciated how well these guys do together.

Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis threw on the sidelines for a while. Davis kept putting some heat on the ball and causing Luke to drop them with the crowd watching, which wasn't appreciated. The two really do seem like brothers.

The usual conditioning and training drills began.

We got our first look at Tyler Gaffney. Gaffney may see increased snaps at the start of training camp due to Jonathan Stewart's hamstring pull. Gaffney really needs to take advantage of it.

Chandler and Bell once again split time at both tackle positions throughout the day.

Dave Gettleman was seen on the sidelines looking over his squad. He was joking around with Charles Johnson a bit and seems to really have the respect of the players. I think they relate to him well as an ex-football coach.

Cam looked healthy and was able to perform all that was asked of him.

It is not surprise that Josh Norman looked good. He always looked good in camp and in practice. Can he make his way out of the dog house this season?

Tavarres King made a really nice grab that was initially bobbled in the air during wr/cb matchups. In an actual game, it may have been picked off by a safety. None the less, it was impressive to watch.

Byron Bell was drawn offsides by Charles Johnson. The flag would probably gone against Johnson I believe, Cam's hard count the credit.

There is little doubt in my mind that Trai Turner is our day 1 starter at right guard. The man is a double wide.

Swole Bones Brandon Williams also made some nice grabs with the first string. If he can produce this year it is going to be huge for the Panthers offense. Hello two tight end sets!

Any time I can take a picture and have two future All Pro players in the frame, its a picture worth taking.

Benjamin made a nice grab from Cam in heavy traffic and headed for the end zone. He continues to flash and could be a breakout player this year.

Deangelo looked good, as usual. He has never had an issue with conditioning in camp. We tend to take that for granted. Could Vinnie Testaverde's influence on him still linger? 

Panthers-Fanfest-35.jpg

Kenjon Barner is quick. He gets to the outside faster than any running back on the roster. He also made a couple of really nice grabs. I know some of you have written him off, but I haven't.

Cam had a blast directing "the wave" with the crowd. I can't think of another player in Panthers history with so much likeability and charisma.

The best play of the day goes to Bersin with a gorgeous TD grab over Byndom.

After practice, it is easy to see who is the most sought after player by the media for a quote.

Hope you enjoyed these photos.

 

I am heading to Spartanburg on Saturday for the kickoff party. If you are there, please be sure to say hello!

Bersin with a great grab over Byndom for a TD. He really looked like a legit NFL WR tonight.


Cam Newton leads the crowd in the wave....

Yesterday, 08:32 PM

He had a lot of fun directing the crowd tonight. The crowd really enjoyed it.

 

 

 

 


Official 7-25 Carolina Panthers Practice Thread

Yesterday, 11:55 AM

For those of you at Fan Fest, please use this thread for observations. Now would be a great time for you to download our Carolina Huddle App! It would make posting much easier from practice. Just search for Carolina Huddle in your App store.

 

Others, feel free to paste interesting tweets in this thread.


On the Jonathan Stewart cap hit talk....

Yesterday, 08:38 AM

Cutting Stewart right now would be a minimal cap savings of 785k, not worth the risk of him producing even marginally this season.

 

 

Next season, if he is cut, the Panthers would save over 4 million. That would go a long way in signing Cam.

 

 

So, don't look for anything this year. But.... in all likelihood this is his last year as a Panther unless he does a major restructuring. That may be a smart move for him as his stock is extremely low on the market right now.

 

However, if he has a great season this year (which is possible), he may make more money on another team next season and would be happy to be released.

 

In short, Stewie is a Panther this season, but probably not next.
