BLOG: Panthers' new look and fresh feel at training camp!

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The Carolina Panthers report to training camp Thursday with their first practice Friday at 6:30 in Spartanburg. All week long we'll focus on a couple of big things to keep your eye on at Camp Wofford...

Let's start with the biggest aspect of camp this year - the health of Quarterback Cam Newton.

This year as opposed to last year, he's 100 percent healthy and that should help everybody else around him with continuity which could go a long way to the team getting off to a fast start in the regular season which has not happened in year's past.

So keep your eyes on him and his leadership role under the new 100 million dollar contract! I think he's ready to shine!

That brings me to one of the more intriguing things to watch in training camp and the pre-season. Cam's chemistry with his new look receiving corp. We know Kelvin Benjamin says he's ready to go!

He said his hamstrings are fine now coming off a spectacular rookie year.

But the thought of another 6'5 receiver in draft pick Devin Funchess stepping up in his rookie season could be downright fun to watch.

So it will be interesting to see how the two big receivers work together on the field clearing space.

Funchess has a lot to live up to after saying last month that he and Benjamin will be a dynamic duo and will cause havoc.

Let's see if he can deliver on all of his summer talk!!
