Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton began a throwing regimen as he continues to rehabilitate his right shoulder following rotator cuff surgery in March.
It's been a unique cast of characters under center in the team's first two decades. Do any of them hold up to Cam Newton?
Newton has the third-best deal among quarterbacks on their second contracts, although he's likely to be pipped in 2019 by two rising stars.
Smith's 2005 campaign, in which he won the receiving Triple Crown with 103 receptions, 1,563 yards and 12 touchdowns, is slotted among the top 10 performances by a WR.

Panthers defensive tackle Kawann Short, who signed a five-year, $80M deal in April, says he's focused on hard-core workouts and improving his game.
Panthers TE Greg Olsen discusses why he'd like to restructure his contract, how much longer he'd like to play in the NFL and what he has left to accomplish.

The Panthers have added an experienced offensive mind in Ron Turner, who will be a consultant to the coaching staff. He has 12 years of NFL experience with the Colts, Bucs and Bears, which included a stint as the offensive coordinator. Turner most recently served as head coach of Florida International from 2013-16.
Now that Tony Romo has retired, Derek Anderson appears to hold the mantle of the NFL's best golfer.
Coach Ron Rivera saw plenty of things he liked during the Panthers' three-day mandatory minicamp.
