  Panthers | Luke Kuechly will be ready    Fri Jan 13, 11:51 AM

Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly (concussion) will be ready for spring workouts, according to defensive coordinator Steve Wilks.

Footballguys view: Kuechly has a history of concussions, and the team has been cautious with him. He was limited to 10 games this year, and even though he was cleared from the concussion protocol the Panthers didn't want to bring him back in a lost season.

  Panthers | Ted Ginn will be free agent    Thu Jan 12, 01:19 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Ted Ginn Jr. will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Ginn improved as a receiver in Carolina, but is still a middling option for teams. It's worth seeing where he lands but his upside is extremely limited.

  Panthers | Jonathan Stewart a possible cut?    Wed Jan 11, 09:42 AM

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart could be a possible cut in the offseason, in the opinion of beat writer David Newton. The move would save the team $6.25 million with a post-June 1 designation.

Footballguys view: The language of the NFL is money, so a move away from Stewart wouldn't be a surprise given his price tag. He hasn't had a 1,000-yard season since 2009, and he hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2011. Stewart has missed three games each of the last three years. Oh yeah...this is an incredibly strong draft class at the running back position.

  Panthers | Season to forget for Cam Newton    Mon Jan 9, 07:01 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton tallied career lows in completion percentage (52.9) and passer rating (75.8) just one year after winning the NFL MVP. He also managed a career low in rush attempts (90) and rushing yards (359) and tied his career low in rushing touchdowns (5).

Footballguys view: Newton struggled and the Panthers followed his lead. This season was a disaster just one year after representing the NFC in the Super Bowl. We'll see what changes the Panthers make to get more out of Newton and company in 2017.

  Panthers | Carolina signs several to futures deals    Mon Jan 2, 08:18 PM

The Carolina Panthers signed WR Keyarris Garrett, RB Jalen Simmons, TE Scott Simonson and TE Eric Wallace to Reserve/Futures contracts. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Garrett is an interesting WR prospect because of his size (6'3" 220 pounds) and large catch radius. Undrafted out of South Carolina State this year, Simmons made some plays in camp for the Panthers. His quick feet allow him to eat up space in a hurry. Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues should monitor both.

  Panthers | No surgery for Cam Newton    Mon Jan 2, 07:04 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) said he will not need to undergo surgery on his injured should this offseason.

Footballguys view: Rest will do a body good. Newton struggled this season, and dropping from 45 total touchdowns (2015) to 24 total touchdowns (2016) caused him to rank 17th for quarterbacks in standard-scoring leagues.

  Panthers | Cam Newton may run less    Mon Jan 2, 06:39 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton likely will be asked to run fewer zone reads next season because head coach Ron Rivera said he wants to see Newton evolve as a quarterback and take fewer hits. 'You can't sit there and expect us to run 20 zone reads and expect him to carry the ball 10 out of those 20 times,' Rivera said. 'That's the truth of the matter.' Rivera said the team will still look for ways to use Newton's athleticism like play action passes.

  Panthers | Jonathan Stewart sits out    Thu Dec 29, 08:38 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: It looks very much like Stewart will not play, which means Cameron Artis-Payne and Mike Tolbert will see carries, but neither one is worth a start.

  Panthers | Greg Olsen not practicing    Thu Dec 29, 08:35 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (elbow) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: We think Olsen would be one of the better tight end plays this week on a weekend of a lot of uncertainty due to teams resting starters or with nothing to play for. Carolina is one of the latter, but they have played well much of the last month, so we think they and Olsen will be the exception.

  Panthers | Cam Newton remains limited    Thu Dec 29, 08:31 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: Newton should play and the Panthers had actually shown some life prior to the game against Atlanta last week. We think it's going to be a solid bounce back week for Newton against Tampa Bay, so he can go out on a high note.
