Cam Newton takes high road on Kelvin Benjamin

Cam Newton has no more words towards former teammate Kelvin Benjamin

The saga continues (kind of) for Cam Newton and former Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin.

Following the Panthers’ preseason win over the Miami Dolphins, Newton was asked via Pro Football Talk’s Michael David Smith about his former teammate.

“There’s no need for me to talk about it. I’m in a lose-lose with that. But I wish him the best.”

Benjamin, who is now with the Buffalo Bills after a surprising...

Christian McCaffrey doesn’t care what you think

In the Panthers 27-20 preseason win over the Dolphins, McCaffrey proved he can be a between-the-tackles runner.

When asked if he’s answering people’s questions on his ability to run inside, McCaffrey responded,

“I’m just here to play ball, not answer anybody’s questions.”

In the Carolina Panthers 27-20 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins, McCaffrey showed just how little he cares about the...

Panthers take care of Dolphins in preseason home opener

The Panthers defeated the Dolphins 27-20 in the 2018 preseason home opener.

The Carolina Panthers defeated the Miami Dolphins 27-20 in the preseason home opener for Carolina, and while the final score is something to celebrate there were a lot of moments throughout the game that should give Panthers fans cause for concern.

The offensive line looked non-existent at times—especially at left tackle—but overall the offense as a whole did an admirable job (they did put up 27 points after...

New Panthers owner tailgates with fans ahead of preseason game

It’s safe to say things are a bit different in Carolina with new Panthers owner David Tepper.Tepper, who finalized his purchase of the franchise last month, was spotted tailgating with fans ahead of Thursday night’s preseason home opener against the Miami Dolphins. That’s one way to make an impression on fans. He has experience as a nine-year minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, so maybe he had it in his head that he wanted to be among the people now that he’s the majority...

Taylor Heinicke emulates Russell Wilson in bid to back up Cam Newton

One could argue that the 25-year-old is a solid No. 2 option because, like the 2015 NFL MVP, he can beat you with his legs as well as his arm.

Can Ian Thomas become the first productive tight end the Panthers have ever drafted?

The Carolina Panthers have never drafted a productive receiving tight end in franchise history. Let’s hope Ian Thomas can reverse the curse.

With data taken from Football Reference, here are the abysmal receiving stats for the nine tight ends Carolina has drafted prior to selecting Thomas in the fourth round this year.

Believe it or not, but the Panthers have never drafted a...
