Summary

Cam Newton threw an impressive 35 TD passes last season, and rushed in a hefty 10 additional scores on his own (296/496 for 3,837 yards, 35 TDs and 10 interceptions passing, with 132/636/10 rushing) - the 35 TD passes were a career high and the 10 rushing scores were his best tally since his 2011 rookie campaign. All this, done without his number one wide receiver, Kelvin Benjamin, who went down to a torn ACL during a joint practice with the Dolphins during 2015 preseason. Oh, and he won the NFL MVP award during 2015, and the Offensive Player of the Year, after being the first NFL quarterback, ever, to throw for over 30 TDs and rush for 10 TDs in a single season. What a season! However, it is fair to note that TD passes are extremely hard to predict, and Newton's prior career high was 24 TD passes in a season. There is room for regression in this area, but the Panthers have added more talent at wide receiver and tight end during the offseason/NFL Draft - tight end Beau Sandland (Montana State) arrived in the seventh round and provides depth behind Greg Olsen. Undrafted free agent Keyarris Garrett led the NCAA in receiving for Tulsa as a fifth-year senior, catching 96 passes for 1,588 yards and eight touchdowns. Receivers Devin Funchess and Benjamin will enter their second NFL regular season together - there is no lack of young talent on this roster for Newton to exploit. We'll see how Newton rebounds from a rough outing in the Super Bowl loss to Denver. Carolina faces Denver at Mile High in the NFL season opener on Thursday, September 8, 2016 so we will see him tested by that stout defense first thing in September. (May 19)
