The Panthers’ first-year players and selected veterans will get a jump on training camp this week with a three-day rookie camp that starts Monday at the team’s Charlotte practice facility.
Cam Newton, the NFL Rookie of the Year in 2011, and the other quarterbacks will participate in the pre-training camp sessions to get their timing down with the Panthers’ new receivers, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.
A number of players who did not practice during organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp due to injury also will attend the rookie camp.
“That’ll give us a chance to get those guys a little more acclimated because they really didn’t get a chance to participate in minicamp,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. “It’ll give us a chance to see where they all are. Hopefully, they’re all 100 percent.”
