Jordan Gross may be retired, but you’re going to see him a lot this season

It was a devastating blow to the Carolina Panthers when stalwart left tackle Jordan Gross retired earlier this offseason. Not only was he arguably the greatest offensive lineman in team history, but he also was a fan favorite.

Panthers' Bell confident in filling void at left tackle

CHARLOTTE -- All-Pro Jordan Gross was a mainstay at left tackle for the Carolina Panthers for 11 years with the team. While other positions recycled and faced questions, there was never any doubt as to whom was going to be protecting the quarterback's blindside.

The Carolina Panthers started organized team activities (OTAs) Tuesday, and like many teams around the league, the day came with many questions regarding the upcoming season.

Who might the Carolina Panthers consider in the later rounds of the draft?

The NFL draft is this week and at cover32, we’ve had you covered for the past few months. A lot of talk has centered around who teams will take with their first round pick and it’s easy to understand why. The beauty of the draft is in its unpredictability but that also makes it difficult to…well, predict. Outside of the first few rounds, it’s a bit of a crapshoot. However...

Panthers have to find several contributors in this draft

Of all the teams picking near the end of the first round of the NFL Draft (which means, by definition that they were pretty good), the Panthers might have the longest shopping list.

Carolina center Ryan Kalil wasn’t about to sugarcoat it on Tuesday when he talked about replacing his friend and long-time Panthers offensive tackle Jordan Gross.
