  Panthers | Luke Kuechly's option picked up    Sat Apr 25, 07:08 PM

Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly's fifth-year option was exercised Saturday, April 25. Kuechly will make $11.1 million in 2016.

Footballguys view: The biggest no-brainer decision in the history of the planet.

  Panthers | Benardrick McKinney works out    Fri Apr 24, 02:53 AM

Mississippi State LB Benardrick McKinney worked out for the Carolina Panthers on Thursday, April 23.

Footballguys view: McKinney is one of the best inside linebackers in this class. Look for him to come off the board in the late first or early second round. McKinney loves contact, and he can strike fear into opponents. He has good straight-line speed, but McKinney could struggle in coverage at the pro level.

  Panthers | Three Oklahoma OL work out    Wed Apr 22, 02:44 AM

Oklahoma OL Daryl Williams, OL Tyrus Thompson and OL Adam Shead all worked out for the Carolina Panthers on Tuesday, April 21.

  Panthers | Two OL work out    Tue Apr 21, 07:47 AM

Utah OL Junior Salt and Utah OL Jeremiah Poutasi worked out for the Carolina Panthers on Monday, April 20.

Footballguys view: Poutasi should be a late-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft, while Salt is expected to go undrafted. At Utah, Poutasi played in a two-point stance and might be moved inside to guard at the pro level because of his athletic limitations. Salt sat out a year and went on a two-year mission, so his age (27) may be a factor for interested teams. He's a powerful player who does little at the second level of the defense.

  Panthers | Landon Collins visits    Fri Apr 17, 07:26 PM

Alabama SS Landon Collins met with the Carolina Panthers Friday, April 17, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Collins is an intimidating player who can line up in the box and attack as a run-defender. He struggles in coverage, and is best playing facing the line of scrimmage. Round one is where we should see him go off the board.

  Panthers | Ronald Darby visits    Thu Apr 16, 02:49 AM

Florida State CB Ronald Darby visited the Carolina Panthers recently.

Footballguys view: Darby has the upside to be a starter in the pros. He's got the speed to make up ground in the blink of an eye. This helps him if he takes false steps on a break or play-action fake. Darby is not a hitter, but he has shown the willingness to play press or off coverage. Look for him to come off the board in the second round of the draft.

  Panthers | Interested in Jalen Collins    Sat Apr 11, 10:08 AM

Louisiana State CB Jalen Collins is scheduled to meet with the Carolina Panthers before the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Collins has the upside to be a shutdown corner in the NFL. He's got ideal height, weight, speed but his technique needs work after only 10 games started during his collegiate career.

  Panthers | Charles Tillman signed    Thu Apr 9, 04:01 PM

Free-agent CB Charles Tillman (Bears) signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers Thursday, April 9. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Panthers need some help in the secondary, but Tillman is well past his prime at this point. He's coming off a triceps injury which cost him the whole of the 2014 NFL season. Tillman's had health issues for years so we are guessing his impact will be relatively minimal. NFL.com's Nick Till pointed out this transaction may be more about Ron Rivera--a former defensive coordinator of Tillman's from the Bears--kicking the tires on a former player than anything else.

Free-agent CB Charles Tillman (Bears) will visit with the Carolina Panthers Thursday, April 9, according a source. The two have a relationship from head coach Ron Rivera's days on the staff in Chicago.

  Panthers | CAR to meet with Breshad Perriman    Wed Apr 8, 01:17 PM

Central Florida WR Breshad Perriman is scheduled to meet with the Carolina Panthers before the 2015 NFL Draft, according to sources.

Footballguys view: At 6'2" 215 pounds, Perriman is more explosive than other receivers his size. He can get off the line of scrimmage quickly and cleanly, and Perriman does a good job maintaining his speed out of the break. He's raw as a route-runner, but his physical skill set make him an intriguing option for teams in the late first or early second round. The Panthers need all the help they can get at wide receiver behind Kelvin Benjamin. Perriman would be a great deep target for Cam Newton.

  Panthers | Two players waived    Wed Apr 1, 05:10 PM

Carolina Panthers OG Derek Dennis and LB Horace Miller were placed on no-recall waivers Wednesday, April 1.

Footballguys view: Both spent most of last season on the team's practice squad. There may not be many teams lined up to sign either one on the open market.


  Panthers | Greg Jennings not coming to Carolina    Tue Mar 31, 10:18 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) visited the Carolina Panthers Tuesday, March 31, and he tweeted he has a deal done. However, a source is reporting that the deal is not with the Panthers.

Footballguys view: Stay tuned here people. No deal may be done at this time, but things could change quickly (like they always do) in this situation.

  Panthers | Greg Jennings signs with Carolina    Tue Mar 31, 06:59 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) signed a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers Tuesday, March 31. Financial terms were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: The Panthers need help at the wide receiver position opposite Kelvin Benjamin. Jennings still has something left in the tank, and he'll provide Cam Newton with a reliable veteran presence.

  Panthers | Sign Jason Trusnik    Tue Mar 31, 04:08 PM

Free-agent LB Jason Trusnik (Dolphins) signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers Tuesday, March 31. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Trusnik started six games last year for the Dolphins where he played 397 snaps over the 16-game season. He can play inside or outside linebacker, and Trusnik is a two-down run-stuffer who can also contribute on special teams.

  Panthers | Jordan Todman signed    Mon Mar 30, 01:33 PM

Free-agent RB Jordan Todman (Jaguars) signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers Monday, March 30. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Only fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues should be interested here. Todman has good straight-line speed, but he's not big enough to take on more than a change-of-pace role in the NFL. Todman will compete for touches behind Jonathan Stewart, and the Panthers will likely draft a back too.

  Panthers | Randy Gregory working out with Carolina    Mon Mar 30, 10:45 AM

Nebraska LB Randy Gregory is working out for the Carolina Panthers Monday, March 30. Gregory met with Carolina last week as well.

Footballguys view: Gregory tested positive for marijuana at the NFL combine earlier this year, but he is unlikely to fall out of the first round. Teams will have to decide to Gregory has kicked the habit, or if this problem with weed is going to continue (he had two positive tests in college at Nebraska).

  Panthers | Jonathan Stewart limited to 15 carries    Sat Mar 28, 04:54 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart will ideally be limited to 15 carries a game, according to head coach Ron Rivera. The team will look to draft a running back in the 2015 NFL Draft that will likely take eight to 10 carries per game.

Footballguys view: You hear that sound? It's Jonathan Stewart's fantasy owners sobbing upon hearing this news. Stewart was supposed to be "the man" this year without DeAngelo Williams. Now, it looks like he's going to be the lead back...but splitting the workload. This is a great RB draft class, so we don't blame the Panthers for looking to add another back.

  Panthers | Ben Ijalana visits    Sat Mar 28, 11:07 AM

Free-agent OG Ben Ijalana (Jets) met with the Carolina Panthers Friday, March 27.

Footballguys view: Ijalana has seen his career knocked off track by injuries after the Colts selected him in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft. He only played six snaps for the Jets last year, and if the Panthers sign him it's only a move for depth...and he's no lock to make the final roster.

  Panthers | Jonathan Martin claimed    Fri Mar 27, 04:30 PM

San Francisco 49ers OT Jonathan Martin was claimed off waivers by the Carolina Panthers Friday, March 27.

Footballguys view: Martin has started 32 games in his career at both tackle spots. He started nine games for the 49ers in 2014 at right tackle. The Panthers wanted better depth and competition on the offensive line, and that's why they made the move to acquire Martin.

  Panthers | Jarrett Boykin signed    Fri Mar 27, 02:06 PM

Free-agent WR Jarrett Boykin (Packers) signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers Friday, March 27. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Boykin gets to go home as he grew up in Charlotte and played his high school ball there. After catching 49 passes in 2013, Boykin only snared three passes in 2014 as he fell down the pecking order in Green Bay. The Panthers need wide receiver help behind Kelvin Benjamin, and Boykin will get to prove if he can be more than a reserve/part-time player.

Jarrett Boykin player page


  Panthers | Stephen Hill may be an option    Fri Mar 27, 11:33 AM

Carolina Panthers WR Stephen Hill may be an option in 2015, and head coach Ron Rivera said he's excited to see Hill in camp. 'With his size (6-4, 215) and speed and his ability to get vertical, if he can assimilate to what we do - and I think he will,' Rivera said. 'He seems to be a very smart man - he might be a guy that has an opportunity to contribute for us.'

Footballguys view: Following in the footsteps of former Georgia Tech WRs Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas, Hill has been a colossal bust. If the Panthers add him, it will only be as a reserve receiver.

  Panthers | CAR interested in Greg Jennings    Sun Mar 22, 02:58 AM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) has drawn interest from the Carolina Panthers. Jennings visited the team on Saturday, March 21.

Footballguys view: Jennings would give the team valuable veteran depth at the position. The Panthers could plug him into the lineup as a slot receiver or a starter on the outside opposite Kelvin Benjamin.

  Panthers | Alan Ball has not agreed to terms     Fri Mar 20, 03:08 PM

Free-agent CB Alan Ball (Jaguars) has not agreed to terms with the Carolina Panthers at this point, but is not ruling it out, according to sources.

Alan Ball player page


  Panthers | Alan Ball signs with Carolina    Thu Mar 19, 11:00 AM

Free-agent CB Alan Ball (Jaguars) signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Carolina Panthers Thursday, March 19. The deal includes a $1 million signing bonus, a $950,000 salary, a $50,000 workout bonus and up to $500,000 in playing time incentives, according to a source.

Footballguys view: While it wasn't the biggest need for Carolina, it will help the defense keep things close over the next season and for a reasonable price.

  Panthers | Will work out Trae Waynes    Wed Mar 18, 03:30 PM

Michigan State CB Trae Waynes said he is scheduled to have a private workout with the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Waynes is arguably the best cornerback in this draft. He's got the length at 6'1" to hang with taller receivers on downfield routes. Waynes does a good job of re-routing his man, and he's got the recovery speed to make up ground in a hurry.

  Panthers | Carolina to meet with Todd Gurley    Wed Mar 18, 12:23 PM

Georgia RB Todd Gurley (knee) is scheduled to have a pre-draft visit with the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Jonathan Stewart's fantasy owners would be bummed out if the Panthers picked up Gurley. Even though he's coming off a knee injury, Gurley should be a first-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft. We'd hate Carolina as a landing spot for him because of Stewart's presence, and the team's willingness to run a frustrating RBBC. Gurley is a stud, and he could be a dominant player in the NFL. We'd like it better if he went someplace where he could be "the man."

  Panthers | Kurt Coleman signs with Carolina    Mon Mar 16, 11:26 AM

Updating an earlier report, free-agent SS Kurt Coleman (Chiefs) signed a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers Monday, March 16.

Footballguys view: A smart move for the Panthers here. Coleman has familiarity with Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott from their time together with the Eagles. Capable of playing both safety spots, Coleman is a valuable reserve with starter's upside.

  Panthers | Teddy Williams signs    Thu Mar 12, 07:31 PM

Free-agent CB Teddy Williams (Jaguars) signed a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers Thursday, March 12, according to his agent.

Footballguys view: Williams made it into the NFL as a wide receiver coming out of Texas-San Antonio as an undrafted free agent in 2010. He converted to cornerback for the Colts in 2012, bounced to wide receiver again with the Cardinals, then back to corner for the Jaguars. Follow along? He's a depth guy for Carolina with an injury history that includes an Achilles' injury.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams officially cut    Tue Mar 10, 05:35 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams was officially released Tuesday, March 10.

Footballguys view: Another move we already knew about. Williams is going to find a home for 2015, but it may take some time. Without Williams, Jonathan Stewart becomes the bellcow back for the Panthers.

  Panthers | Three ERFAs re-sign    Mon Mar 9, 02:15 PM

Carolina Panthers exclusive rights free-agent RB Fozzy Whittaker, LB Ben Jacobs and C Brian Folkerts have re-signed with the Panthers. Whittaker received a two-year deal, while the other two players received one-year deals. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: With DeAngelo Williams gone, the Panthers are going to look for a primary backup behind Jonathan Stewart. Whittaker will be in that mix.

Carolina Panthers exclusive rights free-agent WR Brenton Bersin re-signed with the Panthers Monday, March 9, on a one-year deal.

Footballguys view: Bersin is a part-time player with little fantasy upside. He'll compete for a roster spot in 2015.

  Panthers | Ted Ginn Jr. returning to Carolina    Mon Mar 9, 10:42 AM

Free-agent WR/KR Ted Ginn Jr. (Cardinals) is expected to sign with the Carolina Panthers Monday, March 9.

Footballguys view: Ginn had one of the best years of his career with the Panthers in 2013. He had a career-high five touchdown receptions that year, and Ginn gives Cam Newton a vertical threat on offense.

  Panthers | Michael Oher healthy    Fri Mar 6, 04:34 PM

Carolina Panthers OT Michael Oher (toe) said he's healthy after a toe injury put him on Injured Reserve in 2014 after he started the first 11 games at right tackle for the Tennessee Titans. 'I'm great now, back doing everything full speed,' Oher said. 'It was something that had bothered me every year in the NFL. While lining up in my stance, sometimes I would feel it. It was something I had needed to get taken care of. I finally got it done and I can see the results from it already.'

  Panthers | Sign Michael Oher    Fri Mar 6, 02:06 PM

Free-agent OT Michael Oher signed a two-year contract with the Carolina Panthers Friday, March 6. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: If Oher is a veteran backup, then this is a "meh" deal. If they have to rely on him at any point to be a starter, then it will be a disaster.

  Panthers | Greg Olsen financial details    Thu Mar 5, 05:29 PM

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen's three-year deal is worth $22.5 million, including a $12.5 million signing bonus.

Footballguys view: Worth the price for sure given his production. Whether he tops it this year or not, he will continue to be a huge part of this offense.

  Panthers | Greg Olsen signs extension    Thu Mar 5, 05:24 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen signed a three-year contract extension through 2018 Thursday, March 5.

Footballguys view: The Panthers need Olsen as he was one of the few bright spots for Cam Newton last season. He led the team in receptions (84), tied for the lead in receiving yards with Kelvin Benjamin (1008 yards) and second on the team with six receiving touchdowns. Olsen has been a tremendous asset for Carolina since he joined the team and is one of Newton's favorite targets.

  Panthers | Greg Hardy eligible to sign    Thu Mar 5, 01:09 PM

Carolina Panthers impending free-agent DE Greg Hardy will be allowed to sign a new deal even though he's still on the commissioner's exempt list.

Footballguys view: NFL free agency starts Tuesday, March 10. However, his playing status remains in limbo, and he isn't allowed to play until he's removed from the exempt list, which might prevent teams from talking to him in free agency. The league has uncovered enough evidence in a domestic violence charge to warrant a suspension, according to a league source.

Carolina Panthers impending free-agent DE Greg Hardy left his meeting with NFL officials with no immediate resolution.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton is not a person of interest regarding a shooting last weekend in a Charlotte, N.C. nightclub. The investigation is ongoing, according to police.

Footballguys view: Newton was on stage with rapper Young Jeezy before shots rang out in the club. We're glad that nobody was killed, but two people did sustain non-life threatening injuries.

Carolina Panthers impending free-agent DE Greg Hardy will meet with NFL officials Wednesday, March 4, regarding his domestic violence case and a possible reinstatement, according to a league source.

  Panthers | Greg Hardy will look for reinstatement    Thu Feb 26, 02:18 PM

Carolina Panthers impending free-agent DE Greg Hardy will seek immediate reinstatement after a judge overturned Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's suspension, according to a source.

Footballguys view: With a judge ruling the league overstepped its bounds in Peterson's case, expect the same result for Hardy. He should have some interest on the free agency market, as we're pretty sure the Panthers are done with him.

  Panthers | Carolina interested in Ted Ginn    Thu Feb 26, 12:13 AM

The Carolina Panthers are interested in free-agent WR Ted Ginn Jr. (Cardinals).

Footballguys view: According to a league source, the Panthers plan to reach out to Ginn, who spent the 2013 season with the team. Ginn isn't much help as a receiver, but he could still be used effectively as a return man. However, in 2013 Ginn caught a career-high five touchdown passes.
