Josh Norman has been the talk of the Panthers off-season. Franchised tag by the Panthers last month, the budding star is seeking the big payday, but Carolina prefers a rental. Because of the situation surrounding the Norman's contract negotiations, he's expected to miss the Panthers conditional training. OTA's are optional, and since Norman hasn't signed his franchise tag, these workouts are truly optional. Although he isn't training with the Panthers currently, Norman appears to be working intensely on his craft. Today, he put out this video of his personal offseason workouts.
He Norman has until July 15 to sign the franchise tender if a long-term deal hasn't been negotiated. He's currently seeking 16 million dollars a year, making him the second only to Darrelle Revis.

After looking closely at Hall’s tape primarily against starter Jordan Mills, it looks as if Hall still has a long way to go before we can believe be an effective pass-rusher in the NFL.
Taylor Moton isn’t the player most are talking about following Carolina’s preseason debut, but he arguably is the one player the Panthers needed to impress the most--and he didn’t disappoint.
In a distant time, long ago when players hit hard in training camp, rookie Mike Minter crashed into Rocket Ismail, sending his helmet flying and leaving him writhing in pain and with three different injuries that sidelined him for three weeks.
Cam is healthy and happy this season, however, and it shows when he has been training with the league's best receiver, Antonio Brown, this past week. Brown has been posting updates to Instagram and Twitter highlighting the two bombastic personalities.
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.
