Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen was zipping through channels on his way to Bank of America Stadium on Tuesday when he came upon a conversation about the NFC South on ESPN Radio’s “Mike & Mike” show.
Discussing the Panthers, hosts Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic wondered aloud who quarterback Cam Newton would throw to after the mass exodus at wide receiver during the offseason.
It was hardly new ground Greenberg and Golic were covering, but it moved Olsen to tweet that he was “getting tired of hearing ‘Panthers have nobody for (Newton) to throw to.’”
When Olsen reports to the stadium Thursday morning for the official start of the Panthers’ preseason activities, he’ll find plenty of others in the locker room who are likewise sick of the cracks about the re-made receiving corps.
“It’s kind of been the storyline of the offseason. Any time the Panthers have come up that’s kind of been the first comment made by everybody. I think guys are just kind of tired of it,” Olsen said
