The Carolina Panthers continued their organized team activities
today at Bank of America Stadium.
The workouts are voluntary for the veterans but almost
everyone was there with the exception of receiver Steve Smith
who had an excused absence. Injured linebackers Thomas Davis
and Jon Beason participated in some drills while receiver
David Ghettis, who missed all of last season due to injury,
was able to take part in all drills giving Quarterback Cam Newton
Newton looks ready to take on more of a leadership role,
saying if you have to ask yourself whether you're a leader
or a follower then you are not in a good place.
Coach Ron Rivera is happy to have everybody back and healthy
but says the team has a long way to go to get to the level
he wants them playing at this season.
