Panthers' Tre Boston: Should have starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boston will likely have a starting job, the Panthers' official site reports.

With Roman Harper departing in free agency, Boston is the projected starter alongside Kurt Coleman, who makes for the superior IDP option. A 2014 fourth-round selection, Boston does have six career starts to his name, with two of his three interceptions coming in the playoffs.

Panthers' Devin Funchess: Breakout candidate this season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Funchess is "light years ahead" of where he was as a rookie, according to coach Ron Rivera, and is a candidate for a breakout season this year.

Funchess showed great progress over the course of his rookie season, scoring five touchdowns over his final nine games. In fact, he ended the regular season with seven catches for 120 yards and a score against the Buccaneers in Week 17. Now heading into his second season, the towering target should command significantly more looks in Carolina's offense, even as Greg Olsen and Kelvin Benjamin (knee) figure to be the Panthers' top two options in the passing game.

Panthers' Bene Benwikere: Expects to be ready for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benwikere (lower leg) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Benwikere suffered a lower leg fracture in December, forcing him to miss the final three games of the regular season. He was most recently seen doing some sled pushing on Thursday during a rehab session, which indicates Benwikere has taken the next step in his recovery. While the PUP list is an option to the start the year if he sees any setbacks, Benwikere doesn't expect to take that route and he should be good to go by the start of training camp at the end up July. He'll look to solidify a starter's role after receiving four straight starts prior to the injury.

Panthers' Michael Oher: Signs extension with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oher signed a three-year, $21.6 million contract extension with the Panthers on Friday, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

Oher's new deal worth north of $20 million includes $9.5 million in guaranteed money, as the 30-year-old left tackle had a bounce-back year in 2015, thus earning him an extension to remain in Carolina. The Panthers also signed center Ryan Kalil to an extension in early June, solidifying veteran parts on the offensive line.

Panthers' Luke Kuechly: Should be ready for beginning of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said he expects Kuechly (shoulder) to be ready for the start of training camp in late July, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Kuechly suffered a partial labrum tear in Week 17 last season, yet still managed to record 29 tackles, a sack, a fumble recovery, four passes defensed and two interceptions (both returned for TDs) in three playoff games. He had offseason surgery and was thus limited to team drills during OTAs and minicamp, but his availability for training camp has never been in much question. Still only 25, Kuechly will look to get back north of 150 tackles after a concussion cost him three games last year.
