  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.

  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.

  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 | Mike McNeill waived    Mon Mar 16, 04:59 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Mike McNeill was placed on no-recall waivers Monday, March 16.

  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 | Greg Hardy drawing interest    Wed Mar 11, 12:05 PM

  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.

The Carolina Panthers re-signed DT Dwan Edwards Tuesday, March 10. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

  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.

  Panthers | Brenton Bersin re-signs with Carolina    Mon Mar 9, 10:49 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Hardy has been on the commissioner's exempt list since mid-September. The NFL Players Association is working with the league to have him reinstated immediately.

  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.

  Panthers | Michael Oher visits    Wed Feb 25, 04:48 PM

Free-agent OT Michael Oher (Titans) recently visited with the Carolina Panthers, according to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson. The Panthers are looking to replace impending free-agent OT Byron Bell, who won't be re-signed at left tackle.

Footballguys view: The Panthers need OL help, but signing Oher would be a sign of desperation. He's not a left tackle, and he's also struggled mightily at right tackle. "The Blind Side" is a good movie, but Oher is not a good tackle.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams not upset with release    Tue Feb 24, 12:08 PM

Free-agent RB DeAngelo Williams (Panthers) said he was not upset when the Carolina Panthers told him last week that he'd be released. Williams told Charlotte's WBTV that DE Greg Hardy was the only member of the organization to attend his mother's funeral in Arkansas last May. The Panthers are saying that Williams has not officially been released. The team can save $2 million under the salary cap by designating him a post-June 1 cut. Williams said owner Jerry Richardson's failure to reach out to Williams after his mother's death was 'extremely disappointing.'

Footballguys view: Williams had to see this coming. He's not the same player he used to be and has struggled to be effective or stay healthy for years. Some team could show interest in veteran depth at the running back position now that Williams is on the open market.

  Panthers | Cam Newton deal won't be rushed    Mon Feb 23, 05:32 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton's expected new long-term contract may get done later rather than sooner. The topic of Newton's new deal was not even discussed when Newton's representatives and the Panthers met during the NFL scouting combine.

Footballguys view: We're likely to see Newton wait until Andrew Luck (Colts) and Russell Wilson (Seahawks) set the new market. If a new deal is not done this year, Carolina could franchise tag him in 2016.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams not released    Mon Feb 23, 04:18 PM

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams has not been released and is not expected to be released Monday, Feb. 23. It was previously reported that Williams had been released.

Footballguys view: Not yet is what the headline should read. Williams time in Carolina is likely done, and this is good news for Jonathan Stewart. We'll see if the Panthers officially announce any move with Williams in the near future. Williams is not the same player he used to be, but he could find a home with a team interested in adding veteran depth at the running back position.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams could be gone    Mon Feb 23, 03:12 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams may be on his way out of Carolina. Williams, who turns 32 in two months, played in just six games last season while Jonathan Stewart found new life. Cutting Williams would also save the Panthers $2 million in salary cap space.

  Panthers | Cam Newton begins extension talks    Sun Feb 22, 07:53 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton's representatives were scheduled to meet with the team this weekend at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. Talks for a new contract were on the agenda.

Footballguys view: The Panthers picked up the fifth-year option on Newton last year, so he's entering the final year of his rookie deal in 2015. Newton has had a good start to his pro career, so the Panthers are likely to get him a contract that is among the highest for quarterbacks in the league. However, we should see Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson get new deals before Newton does his.

  Panthers | Greg Hardy staying on exemption list    Fri Feb 13, 05:34 PM

Carolina Panthers impending free-agent DE Greg Hardy will remain on the commissioner's exempt list while the NFL investigates whether he violated the league's personal conduct policy.

Footballguys view: This is not over yet, even though charges were dropped against Hardy. The NFL has filed a motion seeking all of the evidence from Hardy's first trial where he was found guilty of assaulting and threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend. Hardy could be suspended at least six games if he is found to be in violation of the policy.
