Cross pollination is all the rage in sports these days as coaches and players ask themselves, “What can we learn from the skills and practices of other sports?” It’s particularly relevant to football given that there are so many similar yet different sports played around the world, such as rugby union and Australian Rules Football.Read More
Kelvin Benjamin claimed yesterday he wanted out of Carolina because he wasn't getting the looks deserved by a #1 receiver. Benjamin, who was selected #28 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft, was part of an impressive class of wide receivers like Mike Evans and Odell Beckham, Jr who burst onto the scene. Benjamin tore his ACL in a non-contact drill to start training camp following a rookie season where he had put up 1008 receiving yards.Read More
Just five days ago, Curtis Fuller was describing Carolina Panthers' selection of Donte Jackson at #55 overall. His assessment was featured at the top of Carolina's draft coverage on Panthers.com and he seemed to be very much in the mix of the team's selection. The following day, Carolina drafted another defensive back at #85 to start the third round, leaving one to assume that Fuller had direct input on the former Volunteer.
There were a lot of options available to our Panthers at Pick 55. There was Justin Reid, Derrius Guice, Duke Dawson, Isaiah Oliver and Ronnie Harrison all that would have made sense at this point in the draft. However, Hurney 2.0 decided to go with theRead More
The wild draft that included Baker Mayfield going first to Cleveland, Darius Guice slip to the second round, and even Derwin James fall very close to Carolina's range, ended up a pretty predictable draft selection for the Carolina Panthers in DJ Moore. Sure, there were a lot of options available for Carolina when the 24th pick came along, but it seems that they had their eye on a guy all along.Read More

The Panthers poor finish to the season and the subsequent firing of Dave Gettleman revealed there were systemic problems that Benwikere's release tried to clumsily conceal. Benwikere was a patsy.Read More
Marty Hurney closed out the workweek by signing Da’Norris Searcy (SS), Jeremiah Sirles (G), and Ross Cockrell (CB). It was an important week of free agency that strengthened Carolina’s roster as dig in for the draft. In the absence of Andrew Norwell, Kurt Coleman, and the failed signing of Bashaud Breeland, Carolina had significant needs on both on both sides of the ball.Read More
Carolina is currently working on signing Da'Norris Searcy, former Tennessee Titan and Buffalo Bill, to help bolster that defensive backfield. Searcy signed a substantial contract with Tennessee in 2015, after thriving in a Buffalo Bills defense that was churning out top-end safeties year after year. Searcy would have been a nice fit in Carolina at the time, who opted to sign Kurt Coleman and tried to squeeze out every drop of sauce from Roman Harper.Read More
Panthers are dangerously thin at cornerback; could former Saint Delvin Breaux be an option?
The botched deal with Bashaud Breeland left the Panthers with an enormous hole at cornerback. After a down year in the secondary, Carolina cannot afford to go into the season without upgrading their backend.Read More
