    WR Tiquan Underwood joins CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats

    Free-agent wide receiver Tiquan Underwood has signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League, NFL.com reports. Underwood didn't see any NFL action in 2014 after being released by the Panthers last August. He has caught 63 passes for 1,006 yards with six touchdowns in 45 games over five seasons with the Jaguars, Patriots and Buccaneers.

    Paper predicts roles for Panthers receivers

    Jerricho Cotchery and rookie Kelvin Benjamin will start while Jason Avant works as the third receiver. That's the prediction of how the Panthers will re-stock their receiving corps according to the Charlotte Observer. The paper thinks Tiquan Underwood might have cost himself an opportunity after dropping a lot of passes through the OTAs. Rarely-used receivers Marvin McNutt and Tavarres King don't look like full-time players just yet. The paper suggested Brenton Bersin as a candidate to step into a small role -- the 6-foot-3, 210-pound receiver is a favorite of Cam Newton's and he knows every receiving spot, which the coaches like. Carolina's offense figures to use more two-tight end sets with Greg Olsen and Ed Dickson the primary weapons.

    Panthers receivers could be better in 2014

    The Panthers entire receiving corps has been overhauled this season, but ESPN reports the unit could be better this year. Gone are Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell, Ted Ginn and Domenik Hixon. In their place are rookie Kelvin Benjamin and veterans in Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood. The report says Smith at 35 was no better than a No. 2 receiver and at the end of his career. LaFell, Ginn and Hixon really weren't big losses when you look at it closely. The key here will be chemistry, but Benjamin looks like a red zone beast at 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds and Cotchery and Avant are solid possession receivers, who are more dependable than the players they replaced.

    Panthers WRs set to catch Cam Newton's passes soon

    The Panthers open training camp on July 26 but the receivers will begin working with quarterback Cam Newton next week in Charlotte, wideout Tiquan Underwood told USA Today on Thursday. "It's been more difficult because Cam's coming off an ankle injury and he had to get surgery, so we couldn't throw with him as much as we would like," Underwood said. " ... We're just going to try to speed up the process. We're all going to throw -- Derek Anderson, Cam Newton, Joe Webb, Matt Blanchard and all the receivers -- just to work on timing and get that down pat before camp." Newton has barely practiced with his receivers this offseason as he's recovered from ankle surgery. Nearly all of his receivers are new to the Panthers -- Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Underwood all signed as free agents while Kelvin Benjamin was taken with the team's first-round pick. Any chemistry Newton can develop with his receivers before camp starts would be considered a huge plus for the Panthers offense.

    Almost 50 catches for Tiquan Underwood?

    After a nice series of offseason workouts, Panthers receiver Tiquan Underwood was pegged by ESPN as a breakout candidate. That's because he'll fill the role previously held by Ted Ginn, a spot that caught 36 passes and five scores as a deep-ball receiver in 2013. Underwood had 24 grabs and four touchdowns in a similar role with the Bucs last season, and with offensive coordinator Mike Shula familiar with his game and receivers coach Ricky Proehl pitching in, ESPN believes the potential is there for him to double his production.

    Cam Newton needed Kelvin Benjamin

    No quarterback needed a receiver more than Cam Newton, and thankfully the Panthers gave him one Thursday night in the first round of the NFL Draft. With pick No. 28, the Panthers selected Kelvin Benjamin from Florida State. Benjamin immediately becomes the best receiver in Carolina (tight end Greg Olsen is obviously the best weapon, but we're talking just wideouts). After losing Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn this offseason, the Panthers went into Thursday night with Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood atop the depth chart. Yes, you read that right. We're not expecting Benjamin to become an elite Fantasy receiver, but this is a great opportunity. In two seasons with the Seminoles (27 games) Benjamin posted 1,452 yards on 80 catches with 18 touchdowns -- 14 last season. He was a great weapon for Jameis Winston for the Seminoles, and we hope he does the same for Newton. At 6-foot-5, 240 pounds he is a great target. Newton, who is coming off ankle surgery, is still a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback on Draft Day because of his lack of weapons. But if Benjamin can develop quickly, and Newton goes back to running more, his value will rise. As for Benjamin, he's worth a late-round flier in re-draft leagues. And he's a second-round pick in rookie-only formats.

    Tiquan Underwood takes flea-flicker to the house in loss

    Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood has a penchant for catching long passes, as his 18.3 YPC average this year attests. So it came as little surprise that he snagged a 48-yard touchdown strike from quarterback Mike Glennon in the middle of the first quarter Sunday at New Orleans. What was a surprise was how open Underwood got on the flea-flicker. Underwood didn't stop there. He caught two more passes before halftime and finished with a season-high five receptions for 93 yards to end the year on a high note. He ends the year with four scores among his 24 catches.

    Buccaneers get little from reserve receivers

    Buccaneers wide receivers Chris Owusu and Tiquan Underwood failed to get anything going in Week 16, in a 23-13 loss to the Rams. The Buccaneers finished the game with just 158 yards through the air, and 98 of those went to Vincent Jackson, leaving little left over. Owusu finished third on the team with 13 yards on two receptions, and Underwood had just 7 yards on a single reception. The Buccaneers season ends in Week 17 against the Saints.
