RB Jonathan Stewart
Jonathan Stewart has the talent to deserve the running back franchise tag, only 7.7 million in 2012, averaging 4.8 YPC in his career after going in the 1st round in 2008, including 5.4 YPC last year, when he finally broke out as a pass catcher, catching 47 passes. However, the Panthers gave DeAngelo Williams 5 years, 43 million with 21 million guaranteed last offseason, even though he’s 4 years older, and, backed up against the cap, it probably won’t make financial sense to commit upwards of 7.7 million to another running back, however talented he may be. Keeping Williams in 2011, rather than Stewart in 2013, could prove to be a big mistake.

Go ahead, you try telling Carolina's Byron Bell and Thomas Keiser the NFL preseason doesn't matter.
They know better.
Bell and Keiser arrived at Panthers training camp last summer as undrafted rookies and heavy underdogs to make the 53-man roster. Both overcome those odds after strong performances in the preseason.
Bell made the opening-day roster and started 12 games...
Last season, Cam Newton impressed everyone in the NFL with his amazing record setting rookie season with the Carolina Panthers. Cam Newton never once let up and showed game after game that he truly was the real deal. Even critics couldn’t deny that Cam proved them wrong as most expected Cam to be a bust [...]
I may have been one of the harshest Cam Newton critics coming into last season. I knew he had talent, it just wasn’t conventional talent that typically translated to immediate NFL success, and I am not afraid to admit when I am wrong.
He had a historically good rookie season, putting up gaudy statistics, and winning over skeptics from all over the vast sea of haters known as...
Carolina Panthers defensive end Thomas Keiser has found another way to stay hydrated during training camp. He simply ingests chia pet seeds, yes you heard me correctly.
"People ask me all the time if it's the same stuff that's in Chia Pets. It is," Keiser said. "I'll have probably two or three tablespoons in somewhere between two-thirds...
Alright, so there are basically two ways this thing works out. Carolina Panthers Defensive End Thomas Keiser is either the biggest moron of all time or this story is total ********.
