Player News
05/05/2015 - When the Panthers' board started getting picked clean early in Friday's second round, general manager Dave Gettleman got aggressive for a guy they had given a first-round grade. Carolina traded its third- and sixth-round selections to the Rams to jump 16 spots. With the 41st pick, the Panthers added 6-foot-4 wideout Devin Funchess. Just like first-round pick Shaq Thompson, some teams were turned off by trying to figure out where to put Funchess. Is he a receiver or tight end? Gettleman made that answer clear: "He's a wide receiver. Shaq's a linebacker. This kid is a wide receiver." - The Sports Xchange
