Panthers name top three receivers
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

As expected, Panthers coach Ron Rivera named rookie Kelvin Benjamin and veterans Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant the team's top three receivers, reports the Associated Press. Benjamin continues to look good in camp, especially in the red zone.

Paper predicts roles for Panthers receivers
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

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.

Cam Newton working with new receivers
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is running a three-day training session for the team's quarterbacks and receivers in Greensboro, N.C., reports the Charlotte Observer.

The group includes Newton, two other quarterbacks, nine receivers and one tight end. Of the 13 players there, no one other than Newton threw or caught a pass for the Panthers in the 2013 regular season, which means Greg Olsen is not in attendance.

Newton, close to but still not 100 percent on his surgically repaired ankle, has missed nearly all of the offseason workouts while rehabbing and has not been able to throw as much as he would like with his brand-new receiving corps, which includes rookie Kelvin Benjamin and veterans Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant.

"We're trying to fill in the question marks, and it starts with these days," Newton said. "No distractions."

Panthers receivers could be better in 2014
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

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
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

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.
