Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is making good progress in his recovery from shoulder surgery, but head coach Ron Rivera said there is no timetable for when Newton will be throwing at full strength.

Footballguys view: The Panthers will be wise and take it easy on Newton as he continues to progress. We imagine that at some point before training camp we'll have a better idea of his status.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey said his offseason training regiment will allow him to handle another heavy workload in 2019. 'I played in every game last year, felt great,' McCaffrey said. 'I can do it again.'

Footballguys view: McCaffrey had 219 carries and 107 catches last year for the Panthers. He'll be in line for a similar workload in 2019, locking him into RB1 status for Fantasy GMs...and McCaffrey could finish as the no.1 fantasy running back in 2019.

  Panthers | Carolina adds Rashad Ross    Thu Apr 4, 05:29 PM

Free-agent WR Rashad Ross (Cardinals) signed with the Carolina Panthers Thursday, April 4, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Ross was a productive player in the AAF (583 receiving yards, 7 touchdowns) and now gets a chance in the pros since that startup league folded earlier in the week. Undrafted out of Arizona State in 2013, Ross has bounced around to several NFL teams already and he's no lock for the Panthers 53-man roster.

Carolina Panthers QB Taylor Heinicke signed a new one-year deal with Panthers Tuesday, March 12. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Carolina Panthers impending free-agent WR Devin Funchess is referring to himself as a 'former Carolina Panther' and 'now looking for a new team.' After an unproductive season the team is not expected to re-sign him.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft, Funchess had a down season in 2018. In 14 games he caught 44 passes for 549 yards and four touchdowns. The Panthers are looking for an upgrade at the position and Funchess is clearly looking for a new start.

  Panthers | Carolina not planning on adding QB    Thu Feb 28, 12:07 PM

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said Thursday, Feb. 28, that the team does not plan to add a free-agent quarterback to back up QB Cam Newton (shoulder), who is recovering from shoulder surgery. QBs Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen currently are Newton's backups. 'We're very pleased with where we are, in terms of our quarterback position, very satisfied with what we got at the end of the year from both Taylor and Kyle,' Rivera said at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapoils. 'I think both guys showed that ability. If we did do anything, it's probably going to be in the draft. I think developing a guy is important going froward. But we feel really strong about the two guys we have.'

Footballguys view: Newton's injury isn't as serious as originally feared. That means the Panthers can roll with their current backup situation in minicamp this spring with the plan to have Newton out there at full strength for training camp.

  Panthers | Greg Olsen considering TV jobs?    Tue Feb 26, 09:26 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen has received offers from ESPN and Fox to serve as an analyst, according to the New York Post's Andrew Marchand. Two sources have reportedly spoken to Olsen and believe he favors playing, however, 'unless the TV offers come close to the money and/or there is a clear path to even more opportunities.'

Footballguys view: We know that Olsen is close to the end of his playing career. The Panthers know that too, and that's one of the reasons why they selected Ian Thomas in the 2018 NFL draft.

  Panthers | Ron Rivera: Protecting Cam Newton vital    Fri Feb 15, 12:26 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton should be ready for training camp, head coach Ron Rivera said Friday, Feb. 15, on ESPN. Rivera also stressed the need to protect Newton better with the quarterback recently undergoing shoulder surgery, and the coach said the Panthers will use both free agency and the draft, if necessary, to shore up the team's offensive line.

Footballguys view: Rivera says this now that Newton is already hurt. The shoulder problems plagued Newton in 2018 and he certainly wasn't himself when he did play. Newton had shoulder surgery in January that actually revealed less damage than originally feared. The Panthers will ease him into action this offseason, likely some time around training camp.
