Panthers eying Morgan Moses in first round

Much of the attention for the Carolina Panthers first round pick in May’s NFL draft has centered around filling the team’s needs at wide receiver after releasing Steve Smith and losing Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn in free agency, but the bigger need may be at left tackle following the retirement of Jordan Gross.

Ron Rivera learns NASCAR lessons can apply to football

When it’s the offseason, NFL coaches are limited in the work they can do with players, so they have to learn from each other. But instead of turning to other football coaches, Panthers coach Ron Rivera spent time with NASCAR crew chief Chad Knaus, who has led Jimmie Johnson to six titles. The geographic proximity makes it easy, but Knaus also had some experience in a similar...

"That's what I want," Clausen, once a prized prep recruit and Notre Dame standout, told USA TODAY Sports this week while driving to a throwing session. "The only thing I can ask for is an opportunity...

Proposed uniform changes for NFL teams is nothing new. Every week, some sort of idea seems to pop up – from radical redesigns to Star Wars themed tweaks to subtle changes. Most are interesting, but fairly laughable. One new batch, however is worth taking a look at. Jesse Alkire, a freelance graphic artist / designer from Chicago, recently put his spin on each NFL team’s uniform...

Since the 2013 NFL season ended 10 weeks ago, every team in the NFL has made changes. Both winners and losers from last year have been busy making adjustments.

Column: The Carolina Panthers need to draft a running back early

Anybody who has followed the Carolina Panthers closely this past season and offseason recognizes that Carolina has three key weaknesses that must be addressed in the draft: wide receiver, offensive line, and secondary.

Why the Carolina Panthers should trade up in the draft

The Panthers off-season exploits, or lack there of, have been well documented since the team hurried to franchise tag All-Pro defensive end Greg Hardy and then immediately signed kicker Graham Gano, the most accurate kicker in the NFL from 50-plus yards (6-6), to a four-year contract extension. Since then the team has made the wrong noise, letting three of their top four receivers...

Pressure is on Panthers’ Olsen, Williams

Greg Olsen last season became the first Panthers tight end to lead the team in receiving since 1997 – and that was before the team held a fire sale at the wide receiver position.
