Brady followed Baylor coach Matt Rhule to Carolina as the Panthers’ offensive coordinator. Edwards-Helaire, like other LSU players this week, predicts big things for [more]

Watch: Panthers coach Matt Rhule talks about offensive coordinator Joe Brady

Carolina Panthers coach Matt Rhule was a guest on NFL Network this morning. Watch Rhule talk about his 30-year old offensive coordinator Joe Brady with Peter Schrager on Good Morning Football. We won’t get to see them coach in a real game for another six months, but one thing that shines through with Rhule and Brady is their passion for their craft. That should serve them well as they get to work with this rebuild. Email Sign up Like this article? Sign up for the Panthers Wire email...

Panthers S Eric Reid says he played through sprained ankle, MCL in 2019

Panthers safety Eric Reid had a strong season in 2018 after signing late in September. This past year his performance was not quite up to the same level. Now we may have a better idea of why. In a post he shared on his Twitter account, Reid claims he was hobbled by a sprained ankle and MCL the majority of the season. Reid says he’s not making excuses though and expects more from himself. Reid was on the injury report at different times during the season but he still started all 16 games...

Report: Panthers pick up 2020 option for G Chris Reed

The Panthers have picked up the 2020 team option for guard Chris Reed, according to a report by Field Yates at ESPN. Reed’s addition to the roster in December flew under the radar. He was claimed off waivers from the Dolphins just two days after the team fired former head coach Ron Rivera. Reed offers more depth for the interior offensive line, which should be on the laundry list of things the front office needs to address this offseason. Yesterday, the team declined the option on wide...

Panthers will reportedly decline option on WR Jarius Wright

The Carolina Panthers will decline the 2020 contract option for wide receiver Jarius Wright, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (on Twitter). The move will save the club $3M against the salary cap.  Had Wright’s option been exercised, he would have been in line for $1M in guaranteed pay. Instead, he’ll look for work elsewhere after a so-so 2019 season. Wright, 30, had just 28 receptions for 296 yards with no touchdowns in 2019. It was a drop-off from his 2018 season — his first...

Panthers coach Matt Rhule on Cam Newton: 'I really want him on the team'

Panthers coach Matt Rhule just wrapped up a press conference with reporters in Indianapolis at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine. Rhule had some interesting things to say. The elephant in the room was naturally the situation at quarterback, which he addressed before needing to be asked. To recap, Cam Newton is entering the final year of his contract and there’s been a flurry of speculation regarding his future in the media this offseason. Trade rumors and hot takes abound. On that subject,...

Matt Rhule ‘unbelievably excited’ to work with Cam Newton

The Carolina Panthers continue to send mixed signals about Cam Newton’s future with the team. On Tuesday, it was new coach Matt Rhule who said that he was “unbelievably excited” to get the opportunity to work with Newton despite rumors that the Panthers may still look to move on from the quarterback. Newton is recovering from a Lisfranc injury that limited him to two games in 2019. The Panthers want to see him healthy before committing to him, but there are certainly indications that...

While the Carolina Panthers are prepared to move forward with Cam Newton as their starter next season, they are also thinking about the future.

Cam Newton on Instagram: 'All I want is a little commitment'

This morning, Ian Rapoport at NFL Network reported that the Panthers are moving forward with Cam Newton as their starting quarterback. Newton is entering the last year of his contract and there has been a ton of speculation about him potentially being traded this offseason. While Rapoport’s report is reassuring, we still haven’t heard any kind of public commitment from the front office.

Panthers plan to keep Cam Newton

The Panthers plan to move forward with Cam Newton as their starting quarterback, sources tell NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (on Twitter). Things can change in the coming months, RapSheet cautions, but that’s the Panthers’ mindset at this time. There’s been lots of talk about a potential trade of the one-time MVP, but it’ll be months before Newton’s surgically-repaired foot is game-ready, and that hurts his potential trade value. The expectation is that the QB will be able to pass his...
